On Sunday the Seahawks were tied zero to zero with the 49ers when the Seahawks hit their first big play of the game to Marshawn Lynch for a 35-yard gain to the 27-yard line. The Seahawks wouldn’t score on this drive but the field position would lead to the Seahawks first points when they forced a 49ers safety two plays after punting.

The Hawks would eventually go on to win this game easily 29 – 3 and head into this weekend favored by 19.5 points at home against Jacksonville, and plays like this make the highest point spread of the season look like a sure bet against maybe the leagues worst team. Next Week I plan to take a look at some things Seattle does defensively, base coverages, alignments and the sort to offer a basic understanding for the interested fan.
