10 Numbers Of Note From The Seahawks' Week 3 Loss To Minnesota

Ten numbers that help tell the story of Sunday’s loss to the Vikings. 


The Seahawks dropped to 1-2 with a tough loss to the Vikings on Sunday, a game that saw the defense struggle to get a stop, and that saw the offense start fast, but fail to carry that momentum in the second half.

In addition to the 30-17 final score, here are 10 numbers that help tell the story of Sunday's loss to the Vikings:


Scores by Minnesota's offense on its first seven possessions, including three first-half touchdowns.


Points scored by Seattle's offense in the second half Sunday, and its third-quarter point total through three games.


Third down conversions by the Vikings on 14 attempts, including conversions on six of their first seven third downs. Seattle, on the other hand, was just 3 for 8 on third down.


DK Metcalf's season-high yardage total, which came on six catches, including a 10-yard score on Seattle's opening drive.


Tackles made by Bobby Wagner, who leads the NFL with 44 tackles through three games.


Russell Wilson's NFL-leading passer rating through three turnover-free games. Wilson also led the league in passer rating after three games last season with a mark of 139.0.


Rushing touchdowns by Chris Carson, who had a 30-yard score Sunday. That total is tied for the most rushing touchdown in the league, with Derrick Henry and Nick Chubb also having three.


The length of Carson's touchdown run Sunday, making it the longest touchdown run of his career.


Sacks recorded by Darrell Taylor in his first three NFL games. Taylor had Seattle's only sack Sunday, as well as a forced fumble, but Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins was able to fall on the loose ball to prevent the turnover.


Snaps, of 53 total, played by undrafted rookie Jake Curhan at right tackle, his first offensive snaps of his career. Curhan took over for Jamarco Jones, who was dealing with an illness, and Jones was starting in place of Brandon Shell, who was out with an ankle injury.
