Seahawks offensive and defense grades from week five victory
By Jake Luppino
Are people going to finally admit they were wrong about DK Metcalf? I mean, this kid is a superstar in the making. In the two times that the Seahawks have been on Sunday Night Football, he has shown up and shown out. He is absolutely fearless and it is obvious that Russell Wilson trusts him with his life. Not only did they quarantine together for about a month in the summer when Ciara was pregnant, but last night, he was his go-to guy on 4th downs.
I will tell you why I love DK Metcalf. In the Dallas game, he makes a bonehead play and doesn’t allow him to hurt his confidence or his production. In last night’s game, trailing 26-21, on 2nd and goal, Wilson hits Metcalf on out route in the end zone, in which he drops it. But, like he always does with his fearless mentality, he responded. In both games I am referring too, he ends up catching the game-winning touchdown pass.
Metcalf finished the game as the leading wideout with 6 receptions for 93 yards and 2 touchdowns. Carson had just as many receptions, but only for 27 yards. Lockett had another quiet game as he wasn’t able to find the soft spots in the zone, as he normally does.
It was nice to see TE Will Dissly hit pay dirt with the first Seahawks touchdown of the game. Overall, a very impressive performance by the hands team.
