Monday Round-Up: Media Reactions After Seahawks' Week 7 Loss To The Cardinals

Local and national media had a lot to say after the Seahawks’ first loss of the season on Sunday night.


Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Monday, Oct. 26 – for your Seattle Seahawks.

What's Being Said: Cardinals 37, Seahawks 34 OT

The Seahawks suffered their first loss of the season on Sunday night to drop to 5-1 on the season. Ahead by 10 in the fourth quarter, the Cardinals came storming back to tie it as time expired in regulation, then won on another field goal late in overtime. Tyler Lockett was dominant all night for Seattle, totaling 15 catches on 20 targets for 200 yards and three touchdowns. Russell Wilson finished 33 of 50 for 388 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

Here's a look at what the media are saying after the game:

Next Gen Stats Analyzes DK Metcalf's Incredible Tackle

In the second quarter Sunday, it looked like the Seahawks were closing in on extending their lead. Russell Wilson led the team down near the goal line until he floated a pass that Cardinals safety Budda Baker picked off. In an instant, it looked like Arizona would take the lead on a pick six. Then, DK happened.

Running the length of the field, the 6-foot-4, 229-pound receiver chased down the 5-foot-10, 195-pound safety and made an unbelievable tackle.

To further explore just how unlikely this play was, NFL's Next Gen Stats analyzed the touchdown-saving play. Keep an eye on No. 14 to see just how much ground he covered to catch No. 32.

As Next Gen Stats pointed out, DK reached 22.64 mph on his sprint and ran 114.8 yards. The only NFL player to run faster than Metcalf on a tackle this season? That was Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin, who traveled 22.75 mph back in Week 3. A foot race between Metcalf and Griffin to settle things would be must-see TV.
