Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson put his team on his back and ran for the hawks fourth win of season and the first 4-0 start ever in the history of Seattle. A lot happened to get the hawks into overtime including a clutch Richard Sherman pick 6, after starting the second half down 20-3.
In the first half, the offense looked stagnate through most of the game. The effects of missing three starters from the offensive line really showed as the pass rush on Wilson was disrupting the whole flow of Seattle’s offense. The offense didn’t even have a first down in the game until the second half. This caused the defense to begin wearing down and not look like the best
defense in the league. With a lot of out routes and tight end steam routes, Matt Schaub tore the hawk’s defense up. Along with Arian Foster’s broken tackles and cuts to the outside creating big runs. Houston had more yards in the first half than the Seattle Defense normally gives up in n entire game.
The second half started much like the first half. Part way through the third quarter Wilson took the team on his shoulders and
began making big plays with his legs. Wilson began beating the pass rush by running outside the pocket and extending plays.
The defense stepped up huge in the second half and overtime sporting a shut out. Richard Sherman came up with a big play, getting an interception with less than 3 minutes left and returning it 58 yards for a touchdown tying the game at 20-20 causing the game to go into overtime. In overtime the story was back to Wilson and Lynch running the ball, on there second possession, to get into field goal range. Steven Hauscka then proceeded to kick the game winning field goal and Seattle won 23-20
This game goes to show hawks fans that this team really can beat any team in any situation on the road and at 10am west coast time. It’s encouraging to see that they can come back from such a deep deficit to beat such a strong team. It shows that Seattle has the right team together to make a deep run at playoffs.
