Believe it or not, Seattle at Detroit in Week 4 is a game that I circled as soon as the schedule came out. Not because I thought the outcome held the key to the Seahawks’ season, but because, unlike everyone else I know, I actually like the Detroit Lions.
“There was a lot of good things that happened in this game.” That’s what Pete Carroll told reporters following the Seahawks’ 27-23 loss to the previously winless Atlanta Falcons Sunday, a Week 3 matchup that felt far from good for fans leaving Lumen Field.
Remember DK Metcalf’s touchdown grab? That wouldn’t have been possible had the Seattle Seahawks not gone for it on 4th and 2 at Atlanta’s 41. Geno Smith threw a pass to Marquise Goodwin that kept the drive going.
The Seattle Seahawks couldn't keep up with the Atlanta Falcons at Lumen Field on Sunday, and lost an offensive battle 27-23. The Seattle (1-2) offense looked better on Sunday after failing to hit the 20-point mark in each of its first two games, but the 23 scored against the Falcons wasn't enough for the win.
The new-look Seahawks’ defense is still working out some kinks, and the offense was a play short of bailing the team out. Falcons 27, Seahawks 23: Stats Seattle’s defense broke a little more than it bent on Sunday, with the Atlanta Falcons coming away with a 27-23 victory at Lumen Field for their first win of the season after a late interception.
Late in the fourth quarter of their Sunday NFC showdown at Lumen Field, the Seattle Seahawks matchup with the Atlanta Falcons was briefly stopped due to a rather odd security risk. The risk was reported to be an airborne drone that was flying overhead while the Seahawks trailed the Falcons 27-23.
When the Seahawks hit the field against the Falcons on Sunday, they will be doing so with razor-thin depth in the secondary. One of three cornerbacks who won't suit up today at Lumen Field, Seattle surprisingly deactivated veteran Sidney Jones, who was not on the injury report this week and did not receive an injury designation on Friday.
Free agent linebacker Joe Schobert has been a full-time starter over the past five years and has averaged over 126 tackles per season during that span, but he is quickly becoming a fixture on the NFL’s workout circuit.
The Seattle Seahawks have already lost Pro Bowler Jamal Adams to a season-ending injury. The official injury report for Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons lists star safety Quandre Diggs as questionable, only raising more concerns for the defense.
The Seattle Seahawks have locked in Geno Smith as their starting quarterback. And this could be the week that this is truly reflected on the field. Through the first two weeks of the season, the Seahawk’s offense has struggled at times.
Remember the last time the DK Metcalf Seattle Seahawks’ offense actually scored points? Good times. The Seahawks are 1-1 after two games in the 2022 NFL regular season, which was one more win than what most people expected them to have by this point, but they can’t hide the fact that their offense has been anemic, so far.
