15 Numbers Of Note From The Seahawks Week 9 Win Over The Buccaneers

Fifteen numbers that helped tell the story of the Seahawks’ 40-34 overtime victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


The Seahawks improved to 7-2 on Sunday with an overtime win over the Buccaneers, and game that saw a number of players put up big numbers on offense. In addition to the final score, here are 15 numbers that helped tell the story of Sunday's game:


Wins for Seattle through nine games. This is the fifth time in franchise history that the Seahawks have started 7-2 or better, going 8-1 in their first nine games in 2013 and 7-2 in 1984, 1999 and 2005.


Russell Wilson's league-leading touchdown total, which along with his league-low one interception, makes him the first quarterback since the 1970 merger to have 22 or more touchdown passes and one or fewer interceptions through nine games.


Game-winning drives in the fourth quarter and overtime led by Russell Wilson, the most in the NFL since he came into the league. Wilson has led four such drives this season including Sunday's 75-yard touchdown drive in overtime.


Catches for Tyler Lockett, a new career high. Lockett also finished just two yards short of his career-high for single-game yardage with 152, and added two more touchdowns.


Touchdown receptions for Lockett since the start of last season, tied for the most in the NFL over that span.


Receptions for Lockett this season, which already gives him a career high. Lockett is currently on pace to break franchise records for receiving yards (Steve Largent) and receptions (Doug Baldwin and Bobby Engram) in a season.


Touchdown receptions for tight end Jacob Hollister, the first two of his career, in a breakout game that included the game-winning catch in overtime.


Receiving yards for DK Metcalf Sunday, giving him 525 this season, the most among NFL rookies.


Rushing yards for Chris Carson, making him the first 100-yard rusher against Tampa Bay this year.


Career tackles for Bobby Wagner, who added 11-more to his franchise leading total on Sunday.

378, 152, 123, 105

Wilson's passing yards, Lockett and Metcalf's receiving yards, and Carson's rushing yards, respectively, in Sunday's game, marking the first time since 2014 that the Seahawks have had a 300-yard passer, two 100-yard receivers and a 100-yard rusher in the same game. Seattle last accomplished that at Arizona on December 21 of the 2014 season with Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, Doug Baldwin and Luke Willson hitting those marks.


The combined winning percentage of the 7-2 Seahawks and the 8-0 San Francisco 49ers, who will face each other on Monday night. According to ESPN Stats & Info, that's the third-best combined win percentage total in Week 10 or later in Monday Night Football history.


Michael Dickson's net average on three punts Sunday, his second-best mark of the season. That his season-best mark of 47.8 came a week earlier would seem to point to the second-year punter getting in a groove heading into the second half of the season.


Total yards gained by the Seahawks, their second-highest total of the season. The Seahawks currently rank in the Top 8 in the NFL in yards per game (4th, 395.00), points (6th, 27.6), first downs (5th, 23.0), and yards per play (8th, 6.0).


First downs gained by the Seahawks, tied for the fifth best single-game total in franchise, and the most since last year's shootout win over Kansas City. The Seahawks' 23 passing first downs are the most in team history.
