The Seattle Seahawks fell to 1-2 after their loss to the Tennessee Titans. In this game, Russell Wilson threw for 373 yards and four touchdowns against Dick LeBeau’s defense. Statistically this was a great performance, but the vast majority of these yards came while the Seahawks were down by more than 10 points in the fourth quarter. This happened because the team gave up 21 unanswered points in the third quarter.
For this video breakdown, I tracked all of his plays from the game including his 49 pass attempts and scrambles. Also, I looked at themes from the offensive line.
In my opinion, Rees Odhiambo and Oday Aboushi were the main culprits of the pressure that Wilson faced. At times, he definitely held onto the ball for far too long and missed open receivers, but according to ProFootballFocus the entire line gave up 24 pressures during this game.
To finish this video, I also gave my grades from the analysis by quarter:
- Quarter 1 = C-
- Quarter 2 = B
- Quarter 3 = C+
- Quarter 4 = A-
- Final Grade = B
Against the Titans, Wilson and Doug Baldwin were easily Seattle’s best offensive players. If they want to compete against top tier teams, though, their offense needs to become more consistent.
