NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks face some adversity on the road, giving up three straight touchdowns to start the game and are able to come back from a 20-6 deficit to win 32-28. Christopher Kidd of the Seahawks Man 2 Man podcast joined me on the podcast to talk about the victory and the resume that Russell Wilson continues to put up for his MVP campaign.

Wilson completed 23 passes on the day, two of them were touchdowns to Jaron Brown, and he ran in for another while continuing to protect the football. His performance through six weeks even has Pete Prisco jumping on the hype train.

After the win, Pete Carroll talked about how turnovers come in bunches sometimes and it was a forced fumble by Ziggy Ansah, and interceptions my Tre Flowers, KJ Wright and Tedric Thompson. Thompson now has an interception in back-to-back games. Baker Mayfield was complaining about some missed calls by the referees after the game, but while the Browns were able to drive the field against the Seahawks defense, it was those turnovers in critical moments that helped propel Seattle to victory.
