Offenses wake up just before halftime, Dolphins-Seahawks tied

The Dolphins had a mild running back controversy recently, but at the moment, they have something resembling a running game.

The once-benched Reggie Bush’s 21-yard run gave the Dolphins an early lead over the Seahawks.

They’re alternating Bush and Daniel Thomas, and it’s working to an extent. Bush has seven carries for 46 yards and Thomas four for 43 at halftime. They haven’t rushed for 100 yards as a team since Sept. 23.

The Seahawks finally woke up after Bush’s score, driving 80 yards in nine plays to tie the game at halftime, with quarterback Russell Wilson hitting Anthony McCoy for a short touchdown pass just before the break.

The late flurries saw the Seahawks take a 150-149 edge in total offense at the break, but neither team looks like one that’s going to score many more.
