Geno Smith MVP Run
Geno Smith has been having his best season. He is outperforming his trade counterpart Russell Wilson. Smith has 1,942 passing yards and 13 touchdowns with a completion percentage of 72.7 (according to Pro Football Reference).
Kenneth Walker III
Rookie running back Kenneth Walker has been a stud. In the season, he has 85 rushes for 461 yards and five touchdowns (according to Pro Football Reference).
Dissly Take Over
Will Dissly has played outstandingly for the Seahawks. He has 21 receptions for 206 yards and three touchdowns. In each game, Dissly has seen his production rate increase.
These past few weeks, Seattle has proven they are a legit Team. This past week they beat the New York Giants, who were seen as legit, but with this win, Seattle seems even more legit. They can be, in many ways, defensively, with their running back and in the passing game.
The Seahawks have proven that they are a legit team in a weak NFC Conference. With the way they are playing, they can start looking at playoff aspirations. Bet no one said that before the season began. Congrats to Seattle on being the Week 8 team of the Week.
