The Seattle Seahawks didn’t score their first touchdown of the 2016 season until :31 left in their Week 1 game against the Miami Dolphins, and it gave them the win. Down by four with under a minute remaining, Russell Wilson found Doug Baldwin for a two-yard touchdown pass to give the Seahawks the lead. A missed PAT by Steven Hauschka kept the score at 12-10, which ended up as the final score.
The Seahawks are 1-0, the Dolphins are 0-1.
Miami took a 10-6 lead after Ryan Tannehill’s best drive of the game, hitting Kenny Stills for 16, Jarvis Landry for 9 and 28 yards, Damien Williams for 29, and then scoring on a two-yard keeper.
Wilson’s health was a cause of concern for a few minutes after Ndamukong Suh inadvertently stepped on his ankle in the third quarter. Wilson was limping but did not miss any plays. Trainers wrapped his ankles and I’m sure he will be closely evaluated this evening.
Cassius Marsh had an impressive day on special teams, capped with a blocked field goal in the third quarter that kept Seattle ahead 6-3.
The Seahawks play the LA Rams next Sunday at 1:05 PST, the first regular season game in LA in 22 years.
