Stud of the Week

2nd honorable mention – David Moore. This kid is special. He’s got four touchdowns this season, all in the last three weeks, which include two against the Rams. This week he had four receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown. Some of the throws from Wilson to Moore were impressive because it showed just how much trust there was from quarterback to receiver.

More from Seattle Seahawks

1st honorable mentionEd Dickson and Chris Carson. Dickson played his first game back after missing the first six weeks due to injury. He had a little bit of a coming out party in the Motor City, by catching two passes for 54 yards and a touchdown that only a strong man could wrestle in.

Carson had 25 carries for 105 yards and a touchdown. His stats were great but his touchdown was even more impressive. It was a powerful run that ended with safety Quandre Diggs getting put on his butt with a man’s truck by Carson.

Stud of the Week – Russell Wilson. What a game for Wilson. He was 14 of 17 for 248 yards and three touchdowns. If it wasn’t for Nick Vannett getting forced out of bounds in the back of the end zone, Wilson would’ve had four touchdown passes. With the run game being so excellent the last few weeks, the burden has been easier for Wilson and it shows.

Wilson was almost perfect last week. His almost touchdown pass to Vannett was one of only three incompletions for him in the game. It was obvious from the get-go that he had a handle on Detroit’s defense.

The Seahawks began the game with several run-pass options (RPO). Wilson kept giving the ball to Carson until finally, he decided to take it himself to the right side for a ten-yard scamper. From that point, who was in control of the game wasn’t in doubt.

The play that was the most impressive was the one he made with a minute left in the first quarter. The pocket collapsed on Wilson like 12s have seen a million times in the past. Wilson did his thing and whirled around in the pocket like he had eyes in the back of his head and found Vannett for a 17-yard pass play.

This is something Wilson showed many times in his career, so it isn’t impressive from that standpoint. It’s impressive because it is something we haven’t seen much this year under offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. It was refreshing to see that.
