DK Metcalf set a rookie record for receiving yards in a game with 160 and the defense came up with 7-sacks in Seattle’s 17-to-9 win over Philadelphia Sunday.
A big blow to the Eagle’s chances came late in the first quarter when quarterback Carson Wentz left the game with a head injury. 40-year old backup Josh McCown came in, but was not able to get Philadelphia into the end zone. Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll says Wentz going down played a pivotal part in the game…
Russell Wilson threw for 325-yards and a touchdown and was also Seattle’s leading rusher with 45-yards. His favorite target was DK Metcalf, who caught 7-passes for 160-yards, including a 53-yard touchdown pass. Metcalf also hauled down a 36-yard reception on 3rd and 10 from the Seahawk’s 11-yard line to seal the victory. He said the pass was supposed to go to Tyler Lockett…
Russell Wilson says he’s been working with Metcalf since he was drafted and the preparation is paying off…
The Wild Card victory earns the Seahawks a trip to the Divisional round of the NFC playoffs Sunday at Green Bay. Kickoff is set for 3:40pm on FOX.
Dramatic Wild Card Weekend
It was a dramatic Wild Card Weekend across the NFL…
Houston’s Deshaun Watson shook off a rough first half and compiled 302-yards of total offense throwing for a touchdown and running for another as the Texans beat Buffalo in overtime 22-19.
Derrick Henry rushed for 182-yards and a touchdown to lead Tennessee to a 20-to-13 win over New England. The question now is the future of 42-year old free agent quarterback Tom Brady, who’s last pass was intercepted for a touchdown.
Kirk Cousins hit Kyle Rudolph on a 4-yard touchdown pass in overtime to give Minnesota a 26-20 win over New Orleans. Dalvin Cook also rushed for two scores for the Vikings, which became the 2nd #6 seed to knock off a #3 seed of the weekend.
So that sets up the Divisional round of the playoffs this weekend, beginning Saturday with Minnesota at San Francisco at 1:35 on NBC. That’s followed by Tennessee at Baltimore at 5:15 on CBS.
Then on Sunday, the 1:05 game has Houston at Kansas City at 1:05. Then at 3:40, it’s the Seahawks and Packers at Lambeau Field on FOX.
