Offensive Summary

– Ten different Seahawks graded in the green (+1.1 or better) on offense this week.

– Seattle ran the ball on 18 of Michael Robinson’s 21 snaps. Robinson helped clear the way for Lynch.

Zach Miller (58 snaps) and Luke Willson (25 snaps) both put in solid blocking from the tight end spot.

– The starting left side of the line, Paul McQuistan and James Carpenter put in massively poor run blocking performances.

– In 35 snaps, reserve left tackle Alvin Bailey played well and may have made a case for the starting spot while Okung remains sidelined.


Russell Wilson was pressured on just nine of his 30 dropbacks.

– On deep balls (more than 20 yards past the line), Wilson completed 3-of-5 for 101 yards and a TD with no INTs.

– Wilson excelled against the blitz, going 7-of-9 for 113 yards and a TD, good for a 155.8 QB Rating.


– As a team, Seattle gained 214 rushing yards on 42 carries, including 112 yards after contact.

– Another huge game for Marshawn Lynch, as he went to work for 145 yards on 24 attempts, forced another seven missed tackles, and gained 81 yards after contact.


– The Seahawks did not drop a pass in week 10, hauling in all 19 catchable balls.

– Great game for Golden Tate. He caught 6-of-7 targets for 106 yards and a TD, including 75 yards after catch. He beat Asante Samuel regularly.

Doug Baldwin caught five balls for 76 yards on eight targets and graded positively in the passing game.

Jermaine Kearse had a beautiful TD on a flea flicker and caught 3-of-4 targets for 75 yards.

Defensive Summary

Tony McDaniel had two stops in just six run snaps, and posted a massive overall grade despite playing in just 11 total snaps (Editor’s note: McDaniel was limited due to a hamstring injury).

Earl Thomas played every snap, but recorded just one tackle and missed three tackles. However, he did not allow anything in coverage.

Brandon Mebane did most of his damage this week as a pass rusher, recording four hurries in 15 pass rush snaps.

– Good all-around game for K.J. Wright. He notched four tackles (all stops), three hurries, and allowed just 16 yards in coverage in 50 total snaps.


Richard Sherman was not targeted a single time in 36 cover snaps.

– Although he allowed eight catches in 10 targets, Walter Thurmond had a very good day in coverage. The catches went for only 45 yards, most were caught near the line, and Thurmond had four stops.

– In relief of Brandon Browner (pulled groin), Byron Maxwell had a solid day as well, allowing just one reception in four targets, knocking away two passes. However, the one catch went for a 12-yard TD.

Signature Stats

Jermaine Kearse achieved his 75 receiving yards on just 18 pass routes, giving him a Yards per Route Run of 4.17. On the season, Calvin Johnson leads the NFL in that category with 2.80.

Bruce Irvin tallied five hurries in just 13 pass rush snaps, good for a Pass Rush Productivity of 28.8. K.J. Wright had a solid day blitzing as well, achieving a PRP of 18.8. The leader on the season for PRP among 4-3 OLBs is Lavonte David with a mark of 33.8.
