They can put together sustained drives. As much as I wanted to see the “big” play like other Seahawks fans, it was heartening to see Russell Wilson and the offense put on some sustained drives and marched down the field. The time of possession reflected this with the Seahawks keeping the ball for just over 30 minutes while only letting the Buccaneers hold the ball for approximately 37 minutes. This is a vast improvement from previous games. That also let the defensive squad rest, which definitely helped in the second half.
