Beware The Seven Minutes Of Terror

For the second straight home game, the Seahawks exploded for the bulk of their points between the end of the 2nd quarter and early stages of the 3rd quarter. In the SF game, the Seahawks scored an astounding 28 points in seven minutes. In the Chargers game, the Hawks scored a comparably pedestrian 14 points, but did it in less than two game minutes. They very nearly had 14 more with Deion Branch fumbling with under 2 minutes to go, and Hasselbeck drawing into infamy to come away with zero points at the very end of the 1st half.

I wonder what happens if we score in the first quarter…
