The Seahawks lost a close game in Cincinnati Sunday, failing to convert in the red zone with a chance to win in the game's final minute. But despite the result, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll saw a lot of good things from his team, and from his defense in particular, noting, "I love the way we played today… There's always stuff to get better, but that's a freakin' competitive group, man. They fought their ass off today, both sides of the ball. It's going to help us down the road."
In addition to the 17-13 final score, here are 12 numbers that helped tell the story of Sunday's loss, which ended a three-game winning streak for Seattle:
Points scored by the Seahawks on four trips to the red zone in the second half.
Turnovers, a pair of Geno Smith interceptions, doubling the total number of turnovers the Seahawks had in their first four games.
First downs gained by the Bengals on their final eight possessions, not including a knee-down to end the game, after they scored touchdowns on their first two possessions.
Yards gained by Cincinnati in two-plus quarters on those eight possessions.
Interceptions recorded by Tre Brown this season, who intercepted Joe Burrow in the third quarter, in four games played—one of which was cut short by a concussion—the first two in his career.
Passes defensedrecorded by Devon Witherspoon, giving him seven this season, tied for second most in the NFL despite playing only four games.
Explosive plays allowed by Seattle's defense, a pair of Burrow to Ja'Marr Chase completions early in the game. The Bengals did not have a gain longer than 5 yards on the ground.
Defensive snaps, out of 54 total, played by Jamal Adams in his first full game in more than a year. And Adams was productive in his return, recording four tackles, a tackle for loss and a quarterback hit.
Rushing touchdowns for Kenneth Walker III, who has scored in each of the last four games. The second-year running back currently is tied for third in the NFL in rushing scores.
Consecutive games with a made field goal for Jason Myers, a franchise record. Myers made both attempts Sunday, including a 55-yarder.
Yards on four receptions for Jaxon Smith-Njigba, the most productive game so far in the rookie receiver's young career.
Consecutive games with a sack for second-year outside linebacker Boye Mafe, who has already matched his sack total from his rookie season.
