5) Tyler Lockett is the X-factor for the Seahawks
We already knew Tyler Lockett was something special. However, he seemed to be in a zone against the Cardinals, as he repeatedly sliced through the Cardinals special teams like a hot knife through better.
The rookie did all of his damage in the first half, with four punt returns for 139 yards. In the process, he set a new franchise record for punt return yardage in a game.
Let’s not forget Lockett has also been a pretty damn good receiver this season, with 51 catches for 664 yards and six scores. Throw in the occasional rushing attempt and he truly is a versatile threat.
In fact, when you think about it, the 23-year old is effectively a healthier, younger, more stable version of Percy Harvin. When you consider what Harvin was able to do in Super Bowl XLVIII, Lockett represents a scary proposition for the rest of the NFL.
