Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times grades the respective units.
Rookie Trevone Boykin received valuable reps against the 49ers in Wilson's absence.
Kevin Clark of The Ringer highlighted Jimmy Graham's 6-catch, 100-yard performance as one of the best from Week 3:
Seattle is good again this year. This is not a new development. The new development is that one of their most disappointing players has jump-started the offense and could provide a massive boost to a top NFC contender. In Seattle's 37–18 victory over San Francisco, Graham finally looked like the player who was, in 2015, worth trading a first-round pick for. The tight end passed the 100-yard mark for only the second time as a Seahawk (he had 11 yards against the Dolphins and 42 against the Rams in Weeks 1 and 2). Graham developing into a top target would give Russell Wilson a much-needed post–Marshawn Lynch safety valve.
Stephen Cohen of SeattlePI.com shared his three takeaways from the win.
NFL.com writer Marc Sessler penciled in Christine Michael as one of his five takeaways from the game. Here's what he had to say about the Seahawks running back:
Seahawks running back Christine Michael lived up to the billing. Unencumbered by committee duties,The Woke Bloke ripped through San Francisco for 106 yards on 20 totes, using his power and burst to victimize the opponent. Michael opened the scoring with a 41-yard touchdown run on Seattle's third play from scrimmage. Highlights aside, though, he repeatedly challenged defenders, spun out of tackles and battled for extra yardage. We like Thomas Rawls, but Michael, who finished with two scores, has earned the chance to fly as the volume-heavy hot hand while Seattle prepares for the Jets, Falconsand Cardinals over their next three dates.
And lastly, Wilson was a top performer in ESPN's Total Quarterback Ratings for Week 3.
