Kenneth Arthur joined the podcast this week to talk about the Seattle Seahawks win over the Atlanta Falcons as Seattle moved to 6-2 on the season. After helping to shut out the Falcons offense in the first half of the game, all-pro linebacker Bobby Wagner became the franchise leader in tackles for the Seahawks against the Atlanta Falcons on his way to a defensive play that helped to seal the Seahawks 27-20 victory.
With just over three minutes left to go in the game, the Falcons scored a 1-yard touchdown to tight end Austin Hooper to get within 10 points of the Seahawks after being down 24-0 at halftime. Falcons backup quarterback Matt Schaub went back to Hooper on the two-point conversion attempt that would have made it a one possession game. Instead, Wagner was there to knock it away and essentially seal the victory for the Seahawks.
It was a great play in a milestone game for the Seahawks linebacker.
It’s been an honor to watch Bobby Wagner play at the highest level the past eight seasons. A class act on and off the field. Congrats @Bwagz on becoming the @Seahawks all-time leading tackler. Can’t wait to see what’s next! #GoHawks pic.twitter.com/Jz7GtV58da— Chuck Arnold (@ChuckArnoldSEA) October 27, 2019
Wagner was also a part of another big play earlier on in the fourth quarter. With the Seahawks leading 24-11, and the Falcons were 1st-and-goal from the 8-yard line. As Falcons running back Davonta Freeman extended the football toward the goal line, Marquise Blair forced a fumble and Wagner was there to pick up the lose ball.
Tune into this week’s podcast as Kenneth and Brandan discuss the plays by Wagner, the Seahawks defense that allowed 460 passing yards to Schaub, and the perfect connection between Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett.
