There was a lot of like in the Seattle’s Seahawks blowout win over the Cleveland Browns, but it wasn’t a perfect performance.
For the 5th week in a row, that Seattle Seahawks rolled to a easy win. This time is was a 30-13 drubbing of the Cleveland Browns.
The Seahawks did so without a number key players on both sides of the ball. The injury list for Seattle is getting long, but the team keeps rolling anyways.
Here are my 5 biggest takeaways from today’s blowout win:
1. Welcome back Christine Michael
The Seahawks went with a running back-by-committee approach, but it was obvious which of the three options played the best. The Seahawks noticed that too, and continued to feed Christine Michael late in the game.
Derrick Coleman started, but finished with just 10 yards on 5 carries. Bryce Brown was the next player up, and finished with 9 carries for 43 yards.
Michael was the last to get a chance, but he did the most with the opportunity. He ended up with 16 carries for 84 yards.
Most importantly, he didn’t make mistakes. He was patient when he needed to be. He was explosive through the hole and tough to be bring down.
It looks like Michael will be the guy in Seattle until Lynch is healthy again.
