Impressions from the Seahawks’ 40-34 extra time triumph over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday evening at CenturyLink Field:
Russ to the salvage, once more
Russell Wilson drove his fourth final quarter/extra time rebound triumph of the period and the 31st of his profession, and his fifth touchdown spend of the day won for the Seahawks, a 10-yard strike to tight end Jacob Hollister.
Wilson’s 53-yard touchdown go to freshman DK Metcalf with 4:25 left broke a 27-27 tie and gave the star QB their fourth TD go of the game. Wilson came into the game with the NFL’s best passer rating, at 115.5, and posted a 135.9 rating Sunday to enable the Seahawks to improve to 7-2.
The Seahawks’ course of action was clear early — they were going to toss the ball against a Tampa Bay guard that positions as the third-most exceedingly awful in the NFL in the course of the last five seasons against the pass. Eight of the initial nine plays were passes. Chris Carson still figured out how to go more than 100 yards on the ground — the main running back to do that against the Bucs’ group best hurrying resistance this season — to defeat his final quarter lost bumble.
In the same class as Wilson, Tyler Lockett was similarly as great. Lockett had 13 gets for 152 yards and two touchdowns, and they are poised to break Steve Largent’s establishment season record of 1,287 getting yards. Lockett’s first touchdown in the main quarter went ahead an over-the-shoulder get in there right back corner of the south end zone. their second TD catch was in a similar end zone yet in the contrary corner — a similar corner wherein they pulled in his incomprehensible catch against the Rams on Thursday night half a month prior.
Lockett has been everything the Seahawks could have trusted out of their new No. 1 recipient this season. Same goes for Metcalf in his new kid on the block season. It was Metcalf’s splendid catch on a blur course at the Tampa Bay 6-yard line in OT that set up Wilson’s down winning touchdown to Hollister.
Be that as it may, the absence of creation from the other wide recipients is an unmistakable motivation behind why the Seahawks chose to take a bet on Josh Gordon. Gordon, coincidentally, was not on the Seattle sideline Sunday. Gordon, asserted off waivers Friday, passed their physical on Saturday, GM John Schneider revealed to KIRO radio on Sunday morning. Pete Carroll has said they is confident Gordon will be accessible for the Seahawks’ Monday night game at San Francisco.
Alright, how frightened would people say people are about Seattle’s guard?
Like, would people say people are extremely, truly frightened? Or then again would people say people are simply incredibly frightened? Since people’d positively be legitimized anyplace inside that range after the Seahawks’ head-scratching guarded execution Sunday.
Time and again Mike Evans was left open. Again and again Jameis Winston had a lot of time to toss. Over and over again the Bucs got whatever the hell they needed.
The Seahawks permitted Winston to toss for 335 yards and two touchdowns. Evans had 12 gets for 180 yards. Seattle’s pass surge keeps on disillusioning.
This came after the Seahawks about crumbled in the second half in Atlanta seven days prior, permitting reinforcement QB Matt Schaub to toss for 460 yards. On the off chance that the Seahawks are to make a genuine run at a NFC season finisher billet — with the NFL’s hardest timetable in the second 50% of the period — the safeguard must be superior to this.
