Monday Round-Up: Media Reactions After Seahawks' Week 1 Win Over The Colts

Local and national media sounded off after Seattle began its season with a 28-16 victory over Indianapolis.


Good morning, 12s. Happy victory Monday! Here's a look at what's happening today – Monday, Sept. 13 – for your Seattle Seahawks.

What's Being Said: Seahawks 28, Colts 16

The Seahawks got their first victory of the season in Week 1 against the Colts on the road. Russell Wilson shined under new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, completing 18 of 23 passes for 254 yards and four touchdowns. Tyler Lockett was Wilson's favorite target, finishing with four receptions for 100 yards and two scores, including touchdown catches of 23 and 69 yards. DK Metcalf and Gerald Everett also had touchdown grabs.

Seattle jumped out to a 21-10 halftime lead and the defense held Indy in check over the final 30 minutes, as the Colts didn't score until late in the fourth. Bobby Wagner had 13 total tackles to lead the team, while Rasheem Green, Benson Mayowa and Darrell Taylor had one sack apiece.
