2. Young players are leading Seattle’s resurgence

Tyler Lockett open the game with a 50-yard kick return. He then added 7 catches for 90 yards over the course of the game.

Thomas Rawls got another start for the injured Marshawn Lynch. All he did was rush 19 times for 101 yards and a touchdown.

One defense Frank Clark was a one-man wrecking crew. Cassius Marsh made a number of nice plays, and DeShawn Shead continued his string of solid games at CB.

Throw in solid play from Gary Gilliam and Patrick Lewis on the offensive line, and you have a whole new crop of young talent that is starting to step up and play very well.

As the Seahawks work to keep their championship window open for as long as possible, getting such a great performance from their young players is a great sign.
