As always on Monday, here is the Pro Football Focus review of the game.
A couple of points to note:
— PFF said it was the best game of the year for Seattle QB Russell Wilson, stating: “Flashy only when he needed to be, it was the efficiency and calmness we’ve come to expect from Wilson that shone through.”
— PFF gave high marks to Seattle’s defensive line, stating: “We knew coming into the season that the Seahawks’ defensive line was going to be impressive and they certainly didn’t disappoint on Sunday.” As Pete Carroll noted today, the Seahawks rotated even more than usual up front to keep guys fresh for the quick turnaround to Thursday night’s game at Arizona, and as PFF evaluated, just about everybody came through with a solid game.
— Also getting high marks was RB Marshawn Lynch, who had officially been listed as questionable for the game after sitting out practice Friday with a hip injury (though Carroll had said he was going to play and there was never any doubt that he would). Stated PFF: “Averaging 2.81 Yards After Contact Per Carry, Lynch was getting yards even when the Seahawks’ offensive line weren’t able to give him any.”
