Russell Wilson

Any surprise here?

Wilson was superb once again, completing 11 of his 13 passes for 121 yards. He used his legs to get into the end zone for a pair of touchdowns, two of five rushing TDs the Seahawks would have on the night.

Wilson looked ready to go and proved that as usual, there is no question who the offensive leader in Seattle is.

Robert Turbin

Turbin was all Turbo Time against the Chargers after a disappointing performance against the Denver Broncos last week.

Turbin went 81 yards on 12 carries and had a touchdown carry as well. His impressive combination of speed and vision helped him break free for a 47-yard run and he found a few openings in the offensive line that showed great awareness.

He definitely made me more confident that the Seahawks can be successful splitting carries with Christine Michael and Marshawn Lynch.

Beast Mode is still the undisputed starter and leader in the backfield, but Michael and Turbin have proven they are not far behind.

Steven Hauschka

Hauschka is one of the best kickers in the league and has one of the largest ranges as well.

Against the Chargers, he nailed a 55-yard field goal and a 38-yarder and went 5-for-5 on extra point attempts.

Hauschka is one of those kickers whom you feel confident in every time he jogs onto the field.

With the game on the line, I would pick Hauschka over any kicker in the league. It’s great having his leg as an option in case the Seahawks offense can’t quite get in the end zone.
