The Seattle Seahawks have taken a 14-7 lead on the Miami Dolphins late in the 3rd quarter. The Seahawks have taken control of the game's momentum, with quarterback Russell Wilson making the Dolphins defense look silly on the 80-yard touchdown drive.

Wilson was able to throw for 66 yards on the touchdown drive, but his 20 yard run up the middle of the Miami defense will be the highlight of the drive. On second and ten at the Miami 24 yard line, Wilson dropped back to pass, pump faked, and ran away from every Dolphins defender. He slowed down to allow his blockers to catch back up to him, and still no Dolphins player could make the tackle. Eventually, he went down at the four yard line after a 20 yard gain.

Two plays later, he threw to a wide open fullback Michael Robinson on a play action pass for the touchdown.

MIami will look to answer as they get the ball back.
