11 Numbers Of Note From The Seahawks' Week 17 Loss To The 49ers

Eleven numbers that help tell the story of the Seahawks’ final game of the regular season. 


The Seahawks are heading to the playoffs once again, but have to travel to Philadelphia this week as a wild-card team thanks to Sunday's 26-21 loss to the 49ers. In addition to that final score, here are 11 numbers that help tell the story of Sunday's game:


Yard—statistically speaking, it was actually a lot less than that—that stood between the Seahawks and an NFC West title.


Road wins this season for the Seahawks, the most in a season in franchise history. The Seahawks obviously would have preferred to be at home in the playoffs, but they'll go on the road feeling good about their chances.


Touchdown passes by Russell Wilson, giving him 31 this season, the third most in the NFL behind Lamar Jackson and Jameis Winston. It's the fourth time in the last five years Wilson has thrown at least 30 touchdowns. Wilson's five interceptions, meanwhile, were a career low. Only Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers, who each threw four interceptions, had fewer among qualifying quarterbacks. Wilson also went over 4,000 yards for the third time in his career, the most by a Seahawks quarterback.


Receiving yards for DK Metcalf, giving him an even 900 for the season on 58 catches. Metcalf, who also had seven touchdowns, including one on Sunday, had the second most receptions and receiving yards by a rookie in team history, trailing only Joey Galloway's 1995 season in both categories.


Seahawks receivers with 900 or more receiving yards in 2019, Tyler Lockett (1,057) and Metcalf. That's the third time in franchise history the Seahawks have had two pass-catchers with 900 or more yards (Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham in 2016, Joey Galloway and Brian Blades in 1995).


Tackles made by linebacker Bobby Wagner this season, the most in the NFL. That's the second highest tackle total of Wagner's career behind the 167 he had in 2016, and upped his franchise-best career total to 1,073.


Tackles by K.J. Wright, a new career high. Wright also established new career bests in interceptions (3) and passes defensed (11).


Michael Dickson punts downed inside the 20 this season, matching a team record shared by Jeff Feagles and Jon Ryan.


Rushing yards on 10 attempts by rookie Travis Homer, giving him a new career-high. Homer also added 30 receiving yards on five catches.


Touchdown run by Marshawn Lynch, his first in a Seahawks uniform since the 2015 season.


Length of John Ursua's first career catch, a rather important one, as it allowed the Seahawks to convert on fourth-and-10 late in the game.
