The Seahawks battled the flu and the Vikings on Monday night and saw victory in a 37-30 thriller. Though Seattle seemed largely in control, true to fashion it never quite got out of hand. The illness going through the Seahawks locker room made for some interesting snap counts, which we’ll get into below:
- Tyler Lockett, for the second consecutive game following his scare in San Francisco, played a ton at 88 percent. However, he saw just two targets. We should find out for certain, one way or another, in Week 14 whether the last two weeks have been a product of his shin or the flu.
- Everyone’s favorite tackle eligible, George Fant, played over half the offensive snaps at 56 percent. It’s more than his usual workload, certainly, but it came up big with Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny both enjoying strong games.
- Speaking of Carson and Penny, they were close to a split once again, with Carson playing 52 percent to Penny’s 47. Finally, after two maddening months, Penny is getting involved.

Weeks 1-10: 86
Weeks 12-13: 65
- Once has to think David Moore must have been really struggling with the flu, playing just 13 percent of the offense’s snaps, and bizarrely missed a well placed Russell Wilson pass in the endzone.
- Jadeveon Clowney saw a comforting, impactful 78 percent of the defensive snaps. Whatever level of pain he’s dealing with as a result of his injury, we can feel good he will be able to play through it.
- Rasheem Green played only 22 percent of the defense’s snaps, but made an impact when he was out there, most notably with the forced fumble.
- Finally, Cody Barton got a decent run at 20 percent of the defense’s snaps, as Mychal Kendricks battled a hamstring injury which plagued him during the week.
Seattle will now turn around and head to Los Angeles for Week 14, to wrap up their season series against the Rams.
