Seahawks RB Ken Walker keeps getting it done on the ground

The box score shows a pedestrian game by Ken Walker, as the Giants were able to prevent the rookie running back to get out in the open and gaining significant yardage on them. However, Walker was able to do enough damage on the ground to keep the ball away from the Giants in this game.

As the cold season arrives, all the teams including Seattle will try to lean on their running game to try and win the game. They will need a gutsy effort like this from Walker as they try to march in and get a stranglehold on their division. Ken Walker III finished with only 51 rush yards on 18 carries, but he was able to ice the game late in the fourth quarter as he bounced off from the middle and got the edge on the left side for a 16-yard score.

That late touchdown by Walker keeps proving to us how good his vision is and shows us his ability to break tackles, as he was able to elude two defenders to reach the endzone. Each and every game we watch Walker, and we are delighted and thankful that the Seahawks were able to get him in the second round of this year’s rookie draft.
