The Seahawks receivers stepped up big for their rookie quarterback. Sidney rice led the team with six receptions for 99-yards and a touchdown to win the game while Golden Tate recorded five receptions for 96-yards and a score.
Wide out Doug Baldwin also added four catches for 46-yards including a crucial third down catch that led to the winning score.
Tate continued to be in the right place coming up with the big catch when needed including his fourth quarter scramble for a touchdown to give his team the lead late.
In his third year with the Seahawks, Tate is becoming a go to guy for his young quarterback and a solid option week in and week out.
Running back Marshawn Lynch needed little to improve on last week’s performance and he did totaling 87-yards and a touchdown. With Lynch contributing to the offense the Seahawks are able to spread the ball and move down the field with far more ease than relying solely on the passing game.
The biggest performance of the day came from Seattle’s rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.
Wilson completed 23-of-37 throws for 293-yards and two touchdowns. The young quarterback also added 71-yards on the ground on nine attempts.
The most impressive aspect of Wilson’s performance was the two 90-yard scoring drives he led including a 97-yard touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter to take the lead.
Every week Wilson proves that he can succeed in the role of an NFL starting quarterback and could potentially be a franchise player.
If Seattle is going to have any success in the postseason, it will come through Wilson and the offense who continue to improve every week.
