Seahawks' come up big in 4th quarter to defeat Colts

Posted October 02, 2017

J.D. McKissic of the Seattle Seahawks rushes against the Minnesota Vikings at CenturyLink Field on August 18 in Seattle, Washington.

Baldwin said the last time he saw that kind of fire from Wilson was in a 2014 game at St. Louis, when the Seahawks lost 28-26 to the Rams. But Seattle had its way with Chuck Pagano's defense during Sunday night's second half, scoring a franchise record 36 points in the final two quarters.

"I think that's why you see the frustration from a lot of players saying they don't care about your fantasy team", he said. "We did it in the first half".

PROLIFIC PASSERS: Three quarterbacks - New England's TOM BRADY, New Orleans' DREW BREES and Kansas City's ALEX SMITH - have at least 750 passing yards, six touchdown passes and no interceptions through Week 3.

"That's the Russell that we like".

"It's hard to get him there".

"I don't know. Sometimes the guys around him want to talk trash to him to see how he responds, but he's just Mr".

"You gotta come out there and play with the same fire we played with in the first half", explained quarterback Jacoby Brissett.

The Colts blew a second half lead against the Cardinals in week two, losing in overtime. A vital 33-yard completion to the previously invisible Jimmy Graham had brought them into Colts' territory, and they stood second-and-13 at the 30 after a sack. With only 45 seconds left and a couple of timeouts, Seattle marched down the field to get a potential score before the half, but Blair Walsh missed a field goal that went wide right. Starting the year with a third loss would not be a good thing. And Marcus Smith, who finished with 1 1/2 sacks, was a former first-round pick who was a bust with Philadelphia.

Defensive end Cliff Avril left the game with a neck injury, and while he was feeling fine after the game, he will be evaluated going forward.

Seahawks running back Chris Carson suffered what coach Pete Carroll called a significant ankle injury during the team's 46-18 win over the Indianapolis Colts, while left tackle Rees Odhiambo had to be taken to the hospital after experiencing trouble breathing. Carroll says all his signs are stable.

Sunday night's list of inactives is headlined by two players who have been out for the entire season thus far: quarterback Andrew Luck and center Ryan Kelly. Also, tight end Jack Doyle had some concussion-like symptoms in the fourth quarter.

The offensive line had its worst performance of the year, according to analytics website Pro Football Focus, allowing 20 pressures on just 34 pass attempts.
