Rest of the offense with one part that was really good
Rashaad Penny, why did you have to do this to us? After years of barely playing you suddenly show up at the end of your final contract year (since the Seahawks rightfully didn’t pick up your fifth-year option) and play like one of the best backs in the league!
Penny finished with 135 yards on 17 carries and a touchdown. For those scoring at home, that is 7.9 yards a carry. Penny is now second on the team for the season in rushing yards (389) and averages 5.5 yards a rush. He might need to be a must-re-sign as Seattle has no clear number one back for 2022.
For whatever reason, Russell Wilson did not target DK Metcalf at the 11:09 mark of the third quarter. This is atrocious and there is no clear reason for it. Tyler Lockett had only 3 catches for 30 yards. At least Gerald Everett was solid with 4 catches for 68 yards and a touchdown. Everett is a free agent after this season, though, and if I were him I wouldn’t come back to the mess that is Seattle’s offense. No other receiver did anything of note and that’s a problem.
The final empty drive was indicative of the offensive line overall this year. With a bit over 50 seconds left and two timeouts, the Seahawks got the ball and needed only a field goal to win. But Damien Lewis and Ethan Pocic each had a holding penalty and basically killed the drive. The offensive line needs an overhaul. Again.
