Sunday was another great game for the Seattle Seahawks who came away with their third straight win to put them at 7-5 on the season so far.
With everything that went on during the victory against the San Francisco 49ers, there wasn’t a whole lot that went wrong. The Seattle Seahawks defense didn’t allow a touchdown until the third quarter and the offense was on fire the entire game.
So what exactly was the good, bad, and ugly on Sunday? here are three Takeaways:
The Good: Russell Wilson is still Elite
The Seattle Seahawks have really surpassed expectations this season. Quarterback Russell Wilson had himself a game on Sunday. Though only passing for 185 yards, he went 11-for-17 with four passing touchdowns. 36 percent of his completed passes went for a touchdown — every three passes was a touchdown.
Wilson proved that he still can win with the passing game, having a good run game only helps Russell Wilson when he throws. Elite isn’t just 400 yards and 3 touchdowns every week.
The Seahawks have put themselves in a really good position to make the playoffs this season. As it currently sits, Seattle has the No. 5 seed for a wildcard spot, they just need to keep winning.
The Bad: Allowing 400 passing yards?
3rd String Quarterback Nick Mullens threw for 400+ yards on the Seattle Seahawks defense. Mullens attempted 48 passes with 30 completions and only threw for two touchdowns.

I don’t know what it is about our defense that allows so many yards every week even against mediocre quarterbacks. Things have to change, especially since they will be facing Kirk Cousins and Patrick Mahomes in the next three weeks. Unlike the 49ers, the Vikings and Chiefs both know how to finish drives.
(Honorable Mention) The Cool: Playing Ex-Seahawk Richard Sherman
Though his name wasn’t called very much, Richard Sherman got to play his former team for the first time since release. The only time I saw his name was on a few tackles, when he had a missed tackle on Doug Baldwin, when Jaron Brown caught a TD on him, and when he was arguing with the refs.
The Ugly: SeaBass Shanking kicks
Though I let him off the hook for the second missed kick because of how excited the team was after Bobby Wagner‘s 98-yard Pick-6, I do not let him off the hook for the first one. One missed extra point could mean the difference between a win or loss against a better team.
Sebastian Janikowski was perfect on the year for extra points but he has missed field goals this season. He really needs to clean it up and get his head in the game before next week against the Minnesota Vikings.
