Seahawks Loss Ends With Ejections and Misbehavior

Seattle 24 – Jacksonville 30

A few hours removed from the end of the game still hasn’t made this loss any less excruciating. Trying to drum up facts to feel good about is still a frustrating exercise. Coming off the best overall performance of the season with a win over Philadelphia, Seattle looked poised to start their typical December run. They are 18 – 5 in December since quarterback Russell Wilson has been under center.

All signs pointed to a team coming together, developing at the right time and finding their elusive identity. They even won the coin toss for land’s sake! From the beginning, the defense looked strong allowing only one field goal. But penalties and a turnover in the offense were the beginning tremors that would erupt later in a full seismic meltdown.

The Seahawks Play A Complete Game

By Shannon Sanchez // @ShannonSanchez3

Seahawks 24 – Eagles 10

This is arguably the most complete game that the Seahawks have played this year.  From the opening drive, the game seemed to go in favor of the Seahawks.  The offense was led by quarterback Russell Wilson who once again turned into a wizard.  He was scrambling his way out of would-be sacks and finding receivers like tight end Jimmy Graham for the 9th time in 8 games.

Seattle Seahawks Painful Questions

By Shannon Sanchez // @shannonsanchez3

Tennesee 33- Seattle 27

This weekend was guaranteed not to be a typical weekend in the NFL.  With the reaction to the harsh comments from President Trump, there was not going to be a business as usual attitude.  From the outset, the game had a different feel, with both teams opting to stay in the locker room for the national anthem.  

The defense began the game with performances that we have come to expect.  They forced a three-and-out on the first drive.  Defensive end Michael Bennett and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson were among many notable participants in shutting down Tennessee.  Then Seattle received the ball on their 20 to start their drive and that is where things began to get interesting.  Seattle went three-and-out with the offensive line getting penalized three times, two holding penalties and one unnecessary roughness all on just one third down play.

From that moment, the game turned into a flag fest and both teams paid dearly.  Tennessee had two touchdowns taken away and Seattle had a key interception by safety Kam Chancellor taken back because of defensive pass interference on cornerback Richard Sherman.  This sparked outrage by Sherman who took off his helmet to continue arguing with the official, and that caused an additional unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that took Tennessee from their 44-yard line to Seattle’s 25-yard line, for a gain of 31 yards.
