3. Too many open receivers against the defense

It isn’t a surprise that the Legion of Boom wasn’t as good today. This is a team with less depth at db than in past seasons, and they were without two starters.

Still Manziel was able to consistently move the ball despite not having a reliable running game. The Browns were 6 for 12 on third down. Had it not been 5 drops, those third down number would have been even better.

Manziel’s numbers were decent overall. He finished 19 of 32 for 161 yards, 1 TD and one garbage-time interception. Those aren’t set-the-world-on-fire numbers, but they’re decent considering the competition.

The Seahawks need to get healthy in the secondary before the playoff, or this season is going to have an ending reminiscent on 2012.
