Jimmy Graham Nominated For Clutch Performer Of the Week Award
Following an impressive, two-touchdown performance in Seattle’s Week 10 victory at Arizona, tight end Jimmy Graham has been nominated for the Clutch Performer of the Week award at NFL.com. Graham caught six passes for 27 yards in a 22-16 win over the Cardinals, including Seattle’s first touchdown of the game, as well as a fourth-quarter score that gave the Seahawks a two-score lead.
“He’s playing spectacular and doing what we know he can do,” quarterback Russell Wilson said, “And we just give him chances and we are finding our way. We’re working at it.”
Graham’s big game against the Cardinals was just the latest demonstration of what an effective red-zone weapon he has been for the Seahawks this season, especially of late, with the big tight end hauling in six touchdown receptions in the past five games.
“It’s Jimmy coming through, Russ finding the pass,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “He threw it up and gave him a chance to get up for it and then there was beautiful execution down there on the goal line. I know everyone’s been wanting to see that and we’re seeing that. Jimmy is doing a great job and Russell is doing a great job with it. He’s just that kind of player. You can really, you know it’s coming and you can get it anyway. Pretty extraordinary.”
Fans can vote for Graham here until Friday at noon PT.
Graham is trying to become the second Seahawk to win the award in the past three weeks, with Wilson getting the nod for his Week 8 performance in Seattle’s shootout win over the Houston Texans. Read
