12 Number Of Note From The Seahawks' Week 4 Win In Miami

Twelve Numbers that help tell the story of Seattle’s Week 4 win over the Miami Dolphins.


The Seahawks improved to 4-0 with Sunday's 31-23 win over the Miami Dolphins, marking only the second time in franchise history that Seattle has won its first four games, joining the 2013 squad that started 4-0 before losing its fifth game. In addition to that final score, here are 12 numbers that helped tell the story of the Seahawks' win in Miami:


Touchdown passes by Russell Wilson, matching Peyton Manning in 2013 for the most in league history through a team's first four games.


The length of Miami's longest play from scrimmage. The Seahawks gave up only two plays of 20 or more yards, a marked improvement for a defense that allowed four plays of 40 or more yards a week earlier, including three touchdown passes of 40 or more yards.


Interceptions for safety Ryan Neal in as many games. Making his first career start, Neal intercepted Ryan Fitzpatrick on Miami's opening possession, setting up a Seahawks score. Neal also put the finishing touch on Seattle's Week 3 win by intercepting Dak Prescott in the end zone in the game's final seconds.


Takeaways by Seattle's defense through four games, tied for second most in the NFL. Six of those turnovers came via interceptions, the second most in the league. The Seahawks are also tied for second in turnover differential at plus-5, and second in interceptions with six.


Passes defensed by linebacker K.J. Wright, who came close to having two interceptions. Wright also recorded eight tackles and a forced fumble.


Catches for DK Metcalf, oddly enough his reception total in all four games this season.


Receiving yards for Metcalf, who is definitely making the most of those four catches per game. Metcalf is tied for the NFL lead in receiving yards with Buffalo's Stefon Diggs, though Diggs has 26 receptions to Metcalf's 16.


Reception for 11 yards given up by Shaquill Griffin on five targets as the nearest defender in coverage, according to Next Gen Stats. Griffin recorded his second interception in the past two weeks, and had two fourth-quarter pass breakups in the end zone.


Total touchdowns for Chris Carson through four games after he had two rushing scores on Sunday. Carson, who rushed for 80 yards despite sustaining what looked like a serious knee injury a week earlier, is tied for third in touchdowns this year behind New Orleans' Alvin Kamara and Minnesota's Dalvin Cook.


Tackles by Bobby Wagner, who now has 52 double-digit tackle games in his career. Wagner also has an NFL-leading 32 double-digit tackle games since 2016.


Yards for David Moore on just three catches, one of which was a 57-yarder that set up a score at the end of the first half, and another that was a 17-yard score that gave the Seahawks some breathing room in the fourth quarter.


Penalties enforced against the Seahawks on Sunday. That was only the fourth time in franchise history the Seahawks have had zero penalties enforced against them, and first since a 2007 Week 16 win over Baltimore.
