Seattle Seahawks: 5 takeaways from win versus Cardinals
By Jake Luppino
Action Green = Win
The Seattle Seahawks debuted their action green uniforms a couple of years back and have not lost in them since. In fact, the Seattle Seahawks are 7-0 when wearing the action green uniforms.
The Seahawks have given fans some special moments in those action green uniforms. Last year, against the Rams on Thursday Night Football, the night the Seahawks honored Paul G. Allen, not only did the Seahawks win, but Wilson hit Tyler Lockett on what could have been the play of the year. Earlier in the season, the Seahawks gave fans another memorable moment when they defeated the Vikings on Sunday Night Football. After the defense made a huge stop, Russell Wilson led them down the field, converting on two fourth downs, eventually connecting with D.K. Metcalf on the game-winning touchdown.
The special moment of this night was seeing Carlos Dunlap make the game-clinching sack against Kyler Murray. In a year where the defense has been ridiculed game after game, they finally silenced the critics, keeping Murray in check all game. It would be nice if the Seahawks could wear Action Green every home game, but, that would probably just spoil the fun of the win streak.
Ironically, in a year where just a select few stadiums are allowing fans, the Seahawks are undefeated (5-0) at home. Seattle is one of the teams that has not allowed fans at the stadium yet this year. The Seahawks are known for playing so well in front of their loud, crazy fans. But, it appears that they are just as good without them. Obviously, games aren’t the same without them. I guess it’s just that particular field that drives them to play their best.
On a closing note, the Seahawks renamed their stadium to Lumen Field. They are now 1-0 at Lumen Field and have 3 more home games remaining on the year: Giants, Jets, Rams.
