MIAMI (AP) 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.''
