Seahawks vs Packers: Takeaways from the blowout loss
By Keith Myers
Russell Wilson’s accuracy was way off
Was it the cold? Just a bad game? Both? It doesn’t matter the cause, but Russell Wilson did not play well.
The Seahawks 1st drive stalled when he missed a wide open Tyler Lockett for what would have been an easy TD. On the second drive he overthrew a wide open Jimmy Graham. Then the turnovers started.
Wilson threw just 2 interceptions in the team’s first 10 games. He’s thrown 8 in the 3 games since that point, including five today.
He was only 8/16 for 90 yards at halftime. The 2nd half was better, but not by much.
Wilson was more accurate, but his receivers decided to stop doing their part. First Jermaine Kearse decided not to run off the line on what was supposed to be back should throw. That created a pick. Then this happened.
Later it was Troymane Pope letting a ball go through his hands only to be picked off as well. In the end, there were simply way too many mistakes by everyone on offense today.
