The Seattle Seahawks have lost three straight games for the first time since 2011. The one commonality: Russell Wilson wasn’t the starting quarterback. The injured quarterback certainly was missed Monday Night as the Seahawks offense failed to find any rhythm. It is also the first time since 1992 that Seattle has dropped their first three home games. It is no secret that this Seattle team is different from years past.

After a great start in the first quarter, Lumen Field was rocking as hope was spreading through the stands. An 84-yard touchdown pass to D.K. Metcalf followed up with great defensive play is exactly what Seattle had hoped for. They truly couldn’t have asked for a better start.

A 13-10 loss on Monday Night Football has essentially shut the door on the Seattle Seahawks playoff hopes. When the timetable was released on Wilson’s injured finger, the hope for Seattle was that they could win at least two of their next three, starting with Pittsburgh in Week 6 and ending with Jacksonville in Week 8.

Although Seattle could be 2-0 without Wilson, they are not. Mainly because they are not closing out games the way they should be.

3 takeaways from Seahawks Week 7 loss versus Saints

On the year, Seattle is 1-3 in one-score games. Obviously, the loss of Wilson attributes greatly, but they have also plagued themselves with turnovers and penalties. Unfortunately, that was once again on display in Week 7 against New Orleans as Seattle constantly shot themselves in the foot in crunch time.

Here are three takeaways from the Seahawks grueling Monday Night loss.
