The Seahawks improved to 2-0 with a 35-30 win over the Patriots that came down the final play of the game, seemingly the only type of game these two teams play against each other. Here are 12 numbers of note from Seattle's Sunday night thriller at CenturyLink Field.

17

Combined points separating the Seahawks and Patriots over the course of four matchups since Pete Carroll took over in Seattle. Carroll is 3-0 against Bill Belichick's Patriots in the regular season, also winning down-to-the-wire games in 2012 and 2016, while the Patriots made the last-minute goal-line stand to win Super Bowl XLIX.

9

Russell Wilson's NFL-leading touchdown total after two games after he matched a career high with five touchdown passes Sunday night. Wilson has thrown just 11 incompletions in two games, and has a league-high 82.5 percent completion percentage. Wilson's 140.0 passer rating also leads the NFL. Sunday's game also marked the first time Wilson has had four or more touchdown passes in consecutive games.

2

Quarterbacks—Wilson Sunday night and Drew Brees in 2009—who have thrown five touchdown passes against the Belichick-coached Patriots over the past two decades.

5

Different pass catchers who had touchdown receptions: Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, David Moore, Freddie Swain and Chris Carson.

35

Points scored by the Seahawks a week after they had 38 against the Falcons, marking the first time the Seahawks have scored 35 or more in consecutive games since they did it in three straight games in 2015.

92

Yards on four catches for DK Metcalf, including a 54-yard touchdown, a very impressive game for the second-year receiver who was being shadowed throughout the game by cornerback Stephon Gilmore, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year.

0

Touchdowns allowed by Gilmore during the 2019 season on 104 targets, according to NFL Next Gen Stats.

3

Touchdown receptions by Chris Carson, already a career high after only two games. Carson also had 72 rushing yards to lead a team effort that produced 154 yards on the ground and 5.1 yards-per-carry average.

15

Two-game reception total for Tyler Lockett on 16 targets, who has 159 yards and a touchdown.

10

Tackles, including a sack, for Jamal Adams, who now has a team-leading 22 tackles and 2.0 sacks in his first two games as a Seahawk.

8

Tackles, including one for a loss, by Ugo Amadi, who saw the most playing time of his career after taking over the nickel role.

4

Team-leading special teams tackles by Nick Bellore, part of a strong overall special teams effort that included pinning the Patriots inside the 25-yard line on three kick returns, four Michael Dickson punts being downed inside the 20, and big returns by David Moore and Travis Homer.
