Offense Comes Easy for the Seattle Seahawks

 

Seattle Seahawks - Russel Wilson

The Seattle Seahawks came away with another road win this Sunday after a blowout victory over the Buffalo Bills.

Much of the success of the game falls on rookie quarterback Russell Wilson who is playing like he has been in the league for years. In the first half, Wilson ran for three scores and threw for one touchdown becoming the first player in NFL history to accomplish that in one half.

This elite level of play that the Seahawks are getting from Wilson has brought the Seahawks to a winning record and a chance to take the NFC West.

The production that Seattle is getting from their quarterback allows other aspects of the offense to flourish in this case, the running game. With so much of the defensive focus having to be on Wilson, running back Marshawn Lynch is able to take the ball with more room to run.

Lynch ran for over 100-yards again this week and with so much production from a running back and a quarterback, the Seahawks offense has been almost impossible to stop.

The hot streak for Seattle’s offense has come at the perfect time as they are about to head into the playoffs. If this kind of production continues, the Seahawks will be a dangerous team in the postseason and could make a legitimate run.

Defensively, the Seahawks had a few breakdowns in this game with a run by Bills running back C.J. Spiller and another wide open touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to wide receiver Stevie Johnson.

Other than those two slip ups, the defense of Seattle played a great game coming up with three takeaways including an interception by safety Earl Thomas returned for a touchdown.

The Seahawks continued their trend from last week scoring a defensive touchdown as well as scoring 50 plus points in the game.

Seattle is clicking on all cylinders and has turned into an explosive team on both sides of the ball. Depending on the rest of the season, the Seahawks may very well take a division that many thought was already a lost cause.
