The Seahawks win but the Lions Jamaal Williams goes off
I don’t want to pretend that I think the Seahawks defense can stop anyone at this point, however. Detroit will likely be down RB1 D’Andre Swift and WR1 Amon-Ra St. Brown. But Seattle allowed Cordarrelle Patterson, a career-long receiver until last year, to gain 141 yards rushing on 17 attempts in Week 3. Patterson also had a 40-yard run and scored a touchdown on another run. My point is, it doesn’t have to be a great running back that beats Seattle because they are capable of giving up yards to anybody.
Jamaal Williams is a decent back, however. He has three 100-yard games in his career. Williams can carry the ball a lot during a game too so he can stay on the field as a three-down back. Williams actually leads the Lions in both carries this year (43) and rushing touchdowns (4). In fact, he is tied for the league lead in rushing touchdowns.
In Week 4, I think Williams has the best game of his career and runs for 145 yards and 2 touchdowns. Seattle’s run defense (save for Al Woods) is that bad. But even with Williams having a great game, I think Seattle wins a very un-2022-Seahawks game because it is a high scoring one.
The game will be close and Seattle won’t pull ahead until a long touchdown pass to Metcalf midway through the fourth quarter but in the end, Geno has over 300 yards passing, Penny gets his yards and touchdowns and Seattle wins 38-33.
