It was a great game for the final stud, kicker Jason Myers
Let's play storytime, 12s. Imagine you're a salesman at a shady real estate company, selling timeshares in an underwater trailer park. Hey, I said it was shady. Anyway, your boss comes in and says that a guy is there from the main office. He slides into the bullpen, all confidence and charm. He says the home office has been running a contest, and the winner gets decided today. First prize gets the keys to a brand-new Cadillac. Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is a copy of the want ads, because you're out of a job. You're not sweating it; you just nailed a huge sale, and you're sitting at nearly 60 percent of all sales.
Now, imagine our story isn't a blatant ripoff of an iconic play and film, but the Seahawks game versus the Commanders. When you produce 58 percent of your team's points, you know you've had a good day. So yeah, Jason Myers is getting that Caddy. He hit the game-winning kick from 43 yards out as time expired. That's worth a game ball as a stud in itself, but it was his fifth field goal in five tries on the day. He also made another 43-yarder, a pair of 45-yard kicks, and one from 33 yards out. Just for the heck of it, I guess, he nailed both extra points as well to score 17 of Seattle's 29 points.
Myers got off to a rough start this season, missing three field goals in the first two games. Since then he's made 17 of 18 field goals and is now 18 of 18 on extra points attempts for the year. His big game against the Commanders duplicated his 17-point day versus the Panthers, so it's not exactly a surprise to see Myers come through. But on a day when touchdowns didn't come very easily, Jason Myers was the biggest stud of all.
