RW3 got game
Russell Wilson is REALLY good. It’s so easy every year to forget that when you have number 3 in the game, you will rarely get blown out. In fact, the one time in which a blowout took place in recent memory was the debacle at home against the Rams last year where the Seahawks lost 42-7.
He might’ve not been as sharp today as Seahawks fans are used to but he was still the right man for the job to keep Seattle in the game. RW3 did so without his top receiver Doug Baldwin. The star wideout entered the contest less than 100% with a sore left knee. He left the game for good after hurting his right knee.
Wilson didn’t have time in the pocket very often, but when he did, he took advantage. His touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall came when his line stonewalled Denver’s D. He moved laterally to find an open passing lane and hit the veteran receiver 20 yards down the right side, in stride, for the score.
Same thing on his touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks had Wilson on a designed roll out to the right. The QB had time set his feet and find Lockett cutting across the deep middle and connecting 40 yards downfield and again in stride.
