Pro Football Focus grades Seahawks’ win over Arizona

Here is the Pro Football Focus grade book for Seattle’s win over Arizona Sunday:
  • Rough game for left guard Alvin Bailey starting in place of James Carpenter. His -2.2 pass block grade was the worst of the five offensive linemen and included allowing a QB hurry.
  • In only his second week with the team tight end Tony Moeaki played more snaps (36) that his fellow TEs Cooper Helfet (25) and Luke Willson (24).
  • Bailey, RG J.R. Sweezy, and RT Justin Britt all had -0.8 penalty grades. Both the guard tandem and Britt ranked last in their respective groups.
  • In the four “scenarios” that we track, Russell Wilson was at his best when Arizona blitzed, completing 10 of 12 passes on 15 total dropbacks.
  • Left tackle Russell Okung had the second-highest pass block grade at +1.9 for LTs allowing no total pressures.
  • Wilson with only three attempts (all within nine yards of LOS) to the left side of the field. Wilson also went 14 of 14 on passes up to nine yards within the LOS.
  • Aside from Marshawn Lynch and Wilson, the only other player who ran the ball was Robert Turbin (four attempts).
  • Okung earned a +2.3 run block grade, second-highest for LTs.
  • Moeaki led the way in targets with four followed by Lynch (3), and five players with two. The listed receivers were only targeted six times.
  • Helfet with the highest receiving grade at +1.1 aided by his diving TD.
  • Cardinals corner Patrick Peterson was the only Cardinals secondary player who didn’t allow a 100% target/reception ratio (one reception on three targets as the primary coverage man). The other eight players who at some point played pass coverage allowed 16 completions on 16 targets!
  • Linebacker Bobby Wagner with a solid game in his return. His +3.3 run defense grade was the best on the team and fourth-best for all ILBs in Week 12.
  • Safety Kam Chancellor led the team with five stops and his +2.2 run defense was tied for best among safeties.
  • Defensive left end Michael Bennett led the team with three QB hurries, followed by Cliff Avril who had two.
  • DRE Avril’s +2.4 pass rush grade was tied for second-highest among DEs however his -1.7 run defense grade was second-lowest.
  • Chancellor allowed two receptions on two targets….but for only five yards. He and Sherman both had green pass coverage grades.
  • Secondary players targeted: Maxwell (6), Wright/Lane (4), Thomas/Irvin (3).
  • Cardinals receiver John Brown and ex-Seahawk tight end John Carlson were the most successful offensive players for Arizona. Combined they caught six of their seven targets for 86 yards. Brown had success against Maxwell catching both targets for 46 yards.
  • Corner DeShawn Shead did not play a single defensive snap but his +2.0 punt coverage grade is the highest this week.
Signature Stats
  • Wilson had the second-highest yards/attempt yet only had 72 YIA (yards in air) which was fourth-lowest.
  • Wilson with a 89.5% Accuracy Rate which ranks second among QBs this week. Even more amazing is that he was pressured on 59.4% of his dropbacks, the most any QB saw.
  • LB Wagner had fifth-best Run Stop Percentage at 17.6% despite being in the bottom fourth of ILB run snaps played.
  • Chancellor with 17.6 Run Stop Rate, third-best among safeties. His counterpart on the other side of the field Tyrann Mathieu led the way at 20.0%.
