11 Numbers Of Note From The Seahawks' Week 9 Loss at Buffalo

Eleven numbers that help tell the story of Seattle’s 44-34 loss to the Buffalo Bills.


The Seahawks dropped to 6-2 with a 44-34 loss in Buffalo on Sunday, a game in which a tough day for Seattle's defense and turnovers by the offense made all the difference. Here are 11 numbers that help tell the story of Seattle's Week 9 loss:  


Seattle's turnover margin, just the fourth game in the Pete Carroll/John Schneider era with a turnover ratio margin of minus-four or worse, two of which came in 2010. Unsurprisingly, the Seahawks are 0-4 in those games, and are 0-33 all-time as a franchise with a turnover margin of minus-4 or worse.


Points scored by Buffalo, the most allowed by the Seahawks in the Carroll/Schneider era.


Points scored by the Seahawks, who have scored more than 30 points in seven of eight games, and who continue to lead the NFL in scoring.


Pass completions of 20 or more yards by Josh Allen and the Bills offense.


Receiving yards for DK Metcalf, who also recorded his eighth touchdown reception of the season. Metcalf currently ranks second in the league in receiving yards (788), is tied for second in touchdown catches (8), and third in yards per reception (18.3)


Sacks recorded by Seattle's defense. That's the Seahawks' most sacks in a regular-season game since 2013, though they also had seven in last year's playoff win over Philadelphia.


Tackles for loss, including a sack, for defensive end Carlos Dunlap II in his Seahawks debut.


Sacks by defensive tackle Jarran Reed, a career high.


Sacks by Jamal Adams in his return from injury. Adams now has 3.5 sacks in four games as a Seahawk.


Rushing touchdowns for Russell Wilson in three games against Buffalo. Oddly enough, 25 percent (5 of 20) of Wilson's career rushing touchdowns have come against the Bills, a team he has only faced three times out of 136 games played.


Receiving yards by Jacob Hollister, a season high and third highest total of his career. Hollister also continues to see his playing time increase, playing a season-high 31 snaps, the most of Seattle's three active tight ends.
