Even for the Seattle Seahawks, the mid-game shower was a novelty.

A computer glitch caused stadium lawn sprinklers to douse the Seahawks and Miami Dolphins during the third quarter Sunday. The computer was erroneously working on its Saturday schedule, a Dolphins spokesman said.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson said the Seahawks were unfazed.

"I think they're used to the rain," he said.

On a cloudless afternoon, the sprinklers came on between plays and covered most of the field, drawing a cheer from an amused crowd and prompting a brief delay. The sprinklers were quickly turned off, and players toweled off before the action resumed.

"I never saw that before, not even in high school," Miami receiver Davone Bess said. "It was pretty cool."
