The Seahawks offense continues to light it up, no matter who’s on the field

If this defense is good, then the ceiling of this team is going to rise to a whole other level, because this offense is awesome.

It didn’t matter that Geno threw an interception early. It didn’t matter that Shane Waldron made a bad decision and let Dee Eskridge be a running back for a play. It didn’t matter that DK Metcalf got hurt early in the game (please, please be ok). No matter the obstacle, the offense continues to put the points on the board and in bunches.

Against the Chargers, the Seahawks offensive line absolutely mauled Khalil Mack and LA’s defensive front. With a nearly 7-minute advantage in time of possession, the offense controlled the ball, rushing for over two hundred yards, while Geno was surgical in the passing game.

Tyler Lockett is definitely not 100%, but he made some crucial catches to help move the chains and drain the clock, while Marquise Goodwin showed not just elite speed, but some incredible catches in the end zone for some huge touchdowns. With Metcalf likely out for a little bit and Lockett nursing injuries, Goodwin stepping up was and will continue to be huge.

Both turnovers were weird and fluky plays. If they don’t happen, I think Seattle may have dropped 50 points on the Chargers. As long as the offensive line continues to punish opposing defenses, the offense will be the top 5 offense we’ve seen most of the year.
