Late TD drive saves Seahawks

One touchdown was enough for the Seahawks, who struggled offensively all day but put together a touchdown drive over the game’s final four minutes and beat the Dolphins, 12-10.

The game’s only two touchdowns were scored in the final 4:12. The Dolphins took their only lead on a 2-yard run by quarterback Ryan Tannehill with 4:12 left, and Russell Wilson and the Seahawks answered by going 75 yards in 14 plays for the winning points, which came on a 2-yard pass from Wilson to Doug Baldwin.

The officials picked up a flag on the touchdown pass with no explanation.

Before the final drive, the Seahawks had managed just two field goals — one in the first quarter, and one just before halftime — all day. Though they ended up with a significant advantage in total yards (352-222) and first downs (21-11), they turned the ball over twice and couldn’t sustain drives.

Wilson was 27-of-43 passing for 258 yards. Baldwin led all receivers with nine catches for 92 yards.

Tannehill was 16-of-29 for 186 yards. The Dolphins kept running back Arian Foster busy; he ran 13 times for 38 yards and caught three passes for 62.

The Seahawks are at the Rams next week. The Dolphins are on the road again, at New England.

    The refs picked up a flag with no explanation? You must’ve missed the part where they said there was no defensive holding on the play.

    Dolphins choke as usual.

    Four disrespectful players certainly don’t speak for everyone on the team, but boy am I glad that Miami lost.

    As a Seahawks fan I’m not worried about Russ as far as the leg, it will make it make him stay in the pocket where believe it or not he is statistically a lot better, yeah the impromptu running around out of the pocket is fun, but look at the stats he’s better sitting pat in the pocket. What worries the hell out of me is the run game looked pathetic until the forth quarter and the oline is what we fans thought it was. However, as ugly as it was a win is a win, and hate to say it but the Dolphins look like they got a defense there they did well.

    the anti american dolphin players lost this game. that is why.

    Seattle barely beats one of the worst teams in the NFL. lol. seahawks will be lucky to sneak in as a wildcard. they will be 8-8 if they lucky. More like 7-9 and no playoffs. 😭😭😭😭😭

    Great game Seahawks fans… You guys one a tough fought one…

    As a Fins fan, I’m disappointed obviously, but there were a ton of positives to take away from this game…

    1: The defense looked great. The line got pressure, and they stuffed the run for the most-part (which was something they couldn’t do to save their lives last year), and Isa Abdul-Quddus and Jordan Phillips look like gems.

    2: The team battled all day and played with heart. We saw none of that under Philbin.

    3: The offense is committed to the run-game. Again, this is something fins fans haven’t seen in a while.

    4: The Dolphins left 13 points on the field – blocked FG, failed 4th down conversion in easy FG range, and most obviously, the horrific drop by Stills that should’ve been 6. Seems like he got what he deserved after not standing for the anthem.

    All in all, Gase’s team looks like they might make some noise this year, especially if they can steal a win in New England next week against the Bradyless Pats. This team is still growing, and they have plenty of room to improve.

    SO glad the team with the Anthem disrespecting players LOST!

  11. ncphinsfan says: Sep 11, 2016 7:54 PM

    The Seahawks struggled on offense because the Dolphins made it that way. The Dolphins are not as bad as Vegas thinks they are. Bad officiating and a blatantly dropped TD pass is the reason Seattle escaped with a lucky win. Although a loss, it gives us Fins fans some hope. The 4 players who kneeled during the Anthem was the only real tarnish of the day for this team.

  12. schmitty2 says: Sep 11, 2016 7:57 PM

    Hawks lucked out because Stills can’t make an easy wide open catch that would have been a TD. If Wilson is still hurting next week the Rams front 4 is going to annihilate him.

    And I thought all along foxboro has the most home cooking. Obviously they are a close 2nd to Seattle. Multiple holding calls on hawks td drive.

  15. finsphan says: Sep 11, 2016 8:03 PM

    Even though it shouldn’t, the loss will be blamed on tannehill by the media… Especially the Miami beat writers. Tannehill led a late game drive to put them up when everyone said they had no chance, but that will get ignored. Anyone who watched the game knows that the dolphins left pts on the board and they beat themselves. Miami will not be as bad as everyone wants them to be.

  16. fishyinalittledishy says: Sep 11, 2016 8:08 PM

    The Dolphins are a bad team. Don’t care they were playing one of the NFL’s best and ran them close. The difference is Miami played flat out and Seattle had another level or two to go when called upon which they did. It’s going to take the new regime quite a while to sort this bunch out but that’s really what we expected anyway. I hope within that Dolphin locker room they are not congratulating themselves on a performance that took one of the big boys close because they are still a long way from being just a decent team and light years from playoff caliber. Fins up.

    Lolphins are extremely fortunate Wilson was playing on one leg for the entire second half.

  19. aj66shanghai says: Sep 11, 2016 8:13 PM

    This loss will speak more to the Dolphins’ credit than most of their wins will

  20. jmethane says: Sep 11, 2016 8:18 PM

    The only thing that matters is 1-0.

    Later in the year we are comparing records. Any given sunday is a thing and so is the dolphins defensive front. The hawks need their rookie guard back and pronto that was tough to watch. Gg fins fans go beat ne!

    Weird game. All game nobody can get started on offense then the last two drives in crunch-time both teams are unstoppaple.

    Only thing remembered from this game will be how Russell got stomped on by Suh then limped his way though the game and tossed a perfect td pass for the win in crunchtime. His lore just got bigger.

    A win is better than a loss, last year the hawks were 0-1.

  21. igotgamenj says: Sep 11, 2016 8:21 PM

    10/5 dogs lost by 2 and should have won by 10

    So you’re happy that Seattle won then, because they interlocked for protest awareness (which is workign cause we still talk about it) and to respect 9/11. You didn’t really think about your criticism, did you?

  23. aj66shanghai says: Sep 11, 2016 8:28 PM

    Suh didn’t stomp on RW3. Don’t start that please

    Good game Dolphins fans. If Stills could catch, you guys would’ve got the win. You’re defense looks legit too. Tannehill got my respect in that one…he was taking some big hits.

  29. usdcoyotesfan says: Sep 11, 2016 9:23 PM

    I predicted the Seahawks would sneak into the playoffs as the 6 seed. Looks like I overestimated them.

    So sick of hearing about what a class act Russell Wilson is. I punked that dude when he was in college at Wisconsin. In 2011, my buddies and I went to Madison, WI to watch our South Dakota Coyotes play his Badgers. After the game, we were at a bar when this clown showed up and started acting like he owned the place. We ignored him until he came over to the table, talking about how he was going to “whoop on everyone” for not giving him “respect.” Him being 5’11 200 lbs. and me 6’6 250 lbs. I put him in his place very quickly. I’m just glad the guy who took a video immediately deleted it.

    First off the dropped pass took place with 14 mins to in the 2nd quarter so there was a lot of game to be played. So while it certainly didn’t help it should have been overcome. The missed FG on the other hand was inexcusable and definitely contributed to this loss.

    But the biggest take away is the fact that the offense only had 4 first downs thru 3 quarters which is just as unacceptable and that when given the ball 1st and 10 at the 35 the best we could do was a field goal attempt instead of a TD. Lastly the D was dominant for 3 quarters but when need in the crunch, they allowed a 14 play 78 yard TD drive that killed the clock.

    You have posted this tall tale for about 3 or 4 years running now. It like the sad virtual version of Al Bundy talking about Polk High School City Championship.

    “The Dolphins kept running back Arian Foster busy; he ran 13 times for 38 yards and caught three passes for 62.”

    Watching him today felt more like seeing 150 total yards production.

    Yup, everyone is out to get the dolphins. Why do you suppose that is?

    Shula was one of the biggest cheaters in history but even he would be embarrassed by these childish posts by chipper

    usdcoyotesfan is still peddling that same, desperate story from his intimidating 6’6 250 lbs frame.

    Meanwhile Wilson has taken his paltry 5’11 200 lbs and to a SB ring and an $87.5M contract.

    Good competition Miami, and with a few more plays Miami could have won! Your D played hard all day and barely looked gassed in that last drive. Best of luck this season.
