Games typically aren’t considered to come easier than what many expected the Seahawks to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At 0-7, the Buccaneers fight a weekly battle with the Jacksonville Jaguars to decide the worst team in the NFL.
Yesterdays match further proved that any given Sunday, even the NFL’s worst can pull off an unbelievable upset against an élite NFL squad such as the 8-1 Seahawks.
Luckily for the playoff bound Seahawks, who are competing for home-field advantage in the 2013 NFL playoffs, the Bucs weren’t able to hold on to a 21-point lead and become the first team in the past 12 games to come to CenturyLink and leave victorious.
Russell Wilson remains undefeated in his 12 career home starts for the Seahawks. And although Wilson and the Seahawks tied the record for most consecutive home victories in franchise history, arguably the more relieving story this week sis that Marshawn Lynch finally got the damn ball.
This week I’m going to split this into two parts. First half and second half. The Seahawks came into the game like a cocky senior thinking they could just coast through their last year without a care in the world. After a wake up call they locked in on what they had to do and passed, barely.
First Half Grade: D
Second Half Grade: B+
