Seattle Seahawks sit at .500 after step back from winning formula

Postado Novembro 07, 2018

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski #11 kicks a field goal in the first half against the Los Angeles Rams at CenturyLink Field on October 7, 2018 in Seattle, Washington.

Seattle (4-4) got a break when Davis was called for pass interference in the end zone on the final play of regulation against Tyler Lockett, putting the ball at the 1 for an untimed down. The Chargers defense stepped up as well to lay out the quarterback four times.

The Seahawks issues started long before that pass hit the turf. And the final blow came after a Desmond King 42-yard pick-6 with 6:44 to play that would have put the Chargers up by 16.

The end result was too much reliance on Wilson for a fourth-quarter rally.

The Seattle Seahawks opened their game against the Los Angeles Chargers with a touchdown drive. Carroll indicated that this injury is different than what bothered him back in October, but given that Carson never carried more than 150 times in either college season at Oklahoma State, it's fair to wonder whether he can sustain the workload of a starting running back given his punishing, unrelentingly physical run style. Carson had just eight carries, leaving Mike Davis as the primary back.

Linebacker K.J. Wright and strong safety Bradley McDougald had also been listed as questionable, but will both play as well.

Seattle might well have run it from the 1 - coach Pete Carroll wouldn't say for certain afterward what the Seahawks would have done. Fluker didn't play late in the game due to the injury and was replaced by C Joey Hunt playing out of position.

This has nothing to do with last year's season-ending injury for the Seahawks running back. "I'd prefer not to comment on that right now if you don't mind".
