12 Numbers Of Note From The Seahawks’ Week 4 Win In Detroit

NON week 4

Twelve numbers that help tell the story of Seattle's thrilling 48-45 win over the Lions.

The Seahawks improved to 2-2 on Sunday with a wild 48-45 victory over the Lions, a game that saw both teams put up huge offensive numbers on their way to posting the highest combined score in the NFL this season.

In addition to that final score, here are 12 numbers that help tell the story of Sunday's win:


Wins for the Seahawks in their last 15 games kicking off at 10 a.m. PT, dating back to the 2018 season.


48-45 final score in NFL history, Sunday's game between the Seahawks and Lions. That's the 10th unique score game, or scorigami, for the Seahawks dating back to 2010, all of them Seattle victories.


Punts for Michael Dickson on Sunday, the first punt-free game in Seahawks history.


Yards gained by the Seahawks, their highest total since gaining 572 in an overtime loss to Arizona in Week 7 of the 2020 season. That total is the fifth highest in team history.


Yards per play gained by Seattle, the second-best average in team history behind their 2014 win at Arizona in which the offense averaged 8.9 yards per play.


Percent conversion rate on third down by the Seahawks, who were 9 for 12. That's the Seahawks' second-best third-down conversion rate, minimum 10 attempts, in team history behind their 2012 home victory over the 49ers in which they converted 11 of 13 third downs for an 84.6 percent success rate.


Geno Smith's completion percentage through four games. That's the highest competition percentage through the first four games of a season in league history for a quarterback with at least 125 attempts. 


Passing yards for Smith, who posted back-to-back 300-yard games for the first time in his career. 


Smith's passer rating on Sunday, his highest in a game (minimum 10 attempts) since he had a perfect 158.3 rating for the Jets in the final game of the 2014 season. Smith's 108.0 passer rating this season ranks third in the NFL behind Tua Tagovailoa and Patrick Mahomes. 


Rushing yards gained by Rashaad Penny, his fifth time gaining at least 135 yards in his last nine games. 


Rushing touchdowns 30 or more yards for Penny dating back to last season. No other NFL player has more than two dating back to the start of last season. To illustrate how rare Penny's big-play ability is, if you take it back to 2019, capturing two more long TD runs, Penny has seven touchdowns of 30 plus yards, trailing only Derrick Henry, who has eight TDs of 30 or more yards over that span. One big difference though? Henry has 976 carries since 2019, while Penny has just 244. 


Receiving yards for DK Metcalf on seven receptions, his highest yardage total since he had 177 yards in a Week 12 win at Philadelphia in 2020.

The Seahawks face the Lions in Detroit for Week 4 of the season at Ford Field on October 2, 2022. Game action photos are presented by Washington's Lottery.
