Strong Defense Leads Seattle Seahawks To Narrow Victory Over Tennessee Titans
Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks‘ offense has been slow to get going in 2013, but luckily the defense hasn’t missed a beat as they once again led the team to victory. This week it was over the Tennessee Titans, who were without Jake Locker, meaning the secondary picked on Ryan Fitzpatrick most of the afternoon as the replacement starter threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball twice. Richard Sherman was once again making an impact on defense as he and Earl Thomas finished the game with an interception apiece, both of which happened to came on the first play of a Titans possession.
The offense for the Seahawks was unspectacular once again as they gained just over 400 yards on the day but converted on just 38 percent of their third-down plays, which is what ultimately kept them from putting up more than 20 points. Wilson did his best to limit mistakes on the day as he remained fairly conservative in his pass attempts and tried relying on short passes to carry the unit, which eventually worked as the offense came to life in the second half.
Marshawn Lynch continued to be effective but not spectacular on the ground. He was once again a key member of the red zone gameplan as he scored both of the offense’s touchdowns on a pair of short runs. While the play of the offense has allowed the team to go 5-1 to start the year, the next four games for the Seahawks provide them with the opportunity to face a few subpar defenses, meaning now is the time they must get their offense performing consistently.
The offense has been able to move the ball effectively all season long, but getting into the end zone has proven to be tough for them, something that the defense has been able to cover for so far. The Seahawks’ defense is giving up just 16 points per game, and against the Titans they proved themselves once again allowing just two field goals on the day as the lone touchdown the Titans scored was off a blocked field goal they returned 77 yards.
The Seahawks remain one of the best teams in the league after their Week 6 victory, and considering their offense can still improve they could be a team that gets even better as the season goes on.
