The Good: Offensive outburst

In the aftermath of a lackluster Thanksgiving Day performance at home, the Seattle Seahawks emerged from the shadows to demonstrate their resilience and mettle against a formidable opponent. While the final score may not have favored them, the Seahawks left no doubt that they can stand toe to toe with any team in the league. The spotlight fell on quarterback Geno Smith and wide receiver DK Metcalf, whose remarkable performances almost propelled the Seahawks to a stunning upset.

Despite the heartbreaking loss, Geno Smith showcased his grit and determination on the field. The quarterback, battling a lingering injury in his throwing elbow, delivered an impressive performance, throwing for 334 yards with three touchdowns and just one interception. Smith's ability to lead the offense with precision and poise, despite his physical challenges, was nothing short of remarkable. The Seahawks, led by Smith, sent a clear message that they were not to be underestimated.

One of the standout performers of the game was the hulking wide receiver, DK Metcalf. Metcalf's connection with Geno Smith was on full display as he hauled in all three of Smith's touchdown passes. The highlight of the night was a breathtaking 73-yard catch and run by Metcalf in the first quarter, momentarily putting the Seahawks on top 7-3. Metcalf's combination of size, speed, and athleticism made him a formidable weapon, and his performance left fans in awe.

The Seahawks' valiant effort nearly resulted in a stunning upset, with Geno Smith and DK Metcalf at the forefront of the team's offensive charge. The game was a testament to the team's ability to bounce back and compete at the highest level, even in the face of adversity. While the loss stung, the Seahawks left the field with their heads held high, knowing they had given their all against a strong opponent.
