The Seattle Seahawks had an impressive win in their first game of the season, defeating the Detroit Lions in an overtime thriller. The team had several firsts in the game, including their first sack and pick-6, both made Tre Brown. Geno Smith also had his first 300-yard, multi-touchdown performance. Despite starting with back-up tackles at both spots, the team performed well.
The Seahawks’ tackles, Jake Curhan and Stone Forsythe, were particularly remarkable in the game. They allowed zero sacks (excluding Geno Smith sacking himself) and performed admirably. The pressure numbers were also likely good, showing their effectiveness.
After falling behind, the Seahawks came back strong, outscoring the Lions 24-7 to take a two-score lead late in the fourth quarter. However, the Lions managed to force overtime with their own run. Geno Smith led a game-winning drive in overtime, culminating in a touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett.
Despite the win, there are still areas that need improvement, especially the defense. The team struggled on third downs and dropback pass coverage, allowing the Lions to convert 6 out of 11 third downs. This is an aspect that needs work moving forward.
Fans had mixed reactions to the game, expressing happiness, shock, and various emotions in between. Tyler Lockett received praise for his consistent performance, with many considering him a great player. Coach Pete Carroll expressed his hope that Lockett plays forever.
Overall, the Seahawks showed resilience going into a hostile environment, coming off a previous loss, and securing a victory in overtime. There are still lingering concerns, and fans are discussing their Week 2 highlights and ongoing worries.
