The Seahawks saw their season come to an end Saturday with a loss to the 49ers in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, but a disappointing end to the season notwithstanding, there was a lot to like about what a young squad got done during the 2022 season.
With that in mind, here are 22 numbers that help tell the story of the Seahawks 2022 season.
Wins by the Seahawks, not as many as they felt like they could have had after a 6-3 start, but enough for a 10th playoff berth in 13 seasons under Pete Carroll and John Schneider.
Geno Smith's NFL-leading completion percentage, which also set a franchise record.
399 and 4,282
Completions and passing yards for Smith, also franchise-record totals, which helped Smith earn Pro Bowl honors for the first time in his 10-year career.
Touchdown passes for Smith, making him one of three quarterbacks in franchise history with 30 or more touchdown passes along with Russell Wilson and Dave Krieg.
Rookies who saw significant playing time this season on offense, defense or special teams, including several starters: left tackle Charles Cross, right tackle Abraham Lucas, running back Kenneth Walker III, cornerback Tariq Woolen, nickel corner Coby Bryant, outside linebacker Boye Mafe, receiver Dareke Young and safety Joey Blount.
Interceptions made by Woolen, a Seahawks rookie record and tied for the most in the NFL this season. Woolen became Seattle's first rookie defensive player to make the Pro Bowl since linebacker Lofa Tatupu in 2005. Woolen also had 16 passes defensed, tied for fourth most in the NFL.
Starts out of 34 possible for Cross and Lucas, who were just the third rookie duo to start at tackle for the same team since the 1970 merger.
Forced fumbles by Bryant, tied for second most in the league. Bryant also added four passes defensed and a pair of sacks.
Rushing yards for Kenneth Walker III, who was just the second rookie in franchise history, along with Curt Warner, to rush for 1,000 yards. Walker also led all rookies in touchdowns (9), 100-yard rushing games (5) and scrimmage yards (1,215).
Walker's speed on a 74-yard touchdown run against the Chargers, making him the second fastest ball carrier in the NFL this season.
Receiving yards for Tyler Lockett, his fourth-consecutive 1,000-yard season, matching Steve Largent for the most consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in team history.
Receiving yards for DK Metcalf, who now has 4,218 yards and 35 touchdowns in his first four seasons.
The only other season in which the Seahawks had two 1,000-yard receivers and a 1,000-yard rusher.
Interceptions by Quandre Diggs, including in overtime of Week 18, a play that helped send the Seahawks to the playoffs. Diggs is the only player with three or more interceptions in each of the past six seasons.
Sacks by Uchenna Nwosu and Darrell Taylor, career highs for both players.
Quarterback hits for Nwosu, tied for ninth most in the NFL. Nwosu's 12 tackles for loss also led the team.
Ryan Neal's season grade from Pro Football Focus, making him the highest-graded safety in the NFL according to PFF.
Tackles for Jordyn Brooks, the fourth most in the league despite missing a game and a half to end the year. That follows a 2021 season in which Brooks set a franchise record with 183 tackles.
