Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Monday, January 3 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Seahawks 51, Lions 29
The Seahawks cruised to one of their biggest wins of the season Sunday afternoon, defeating the Lions by a score of 51-29. It was a huge day for the Seahawks offense, which amassed 497 total yards en route to scoring 50 or more points for just the fifth time in franchise history and first since 2012.
Rashaad Penny continued his recent hot streak with another career-best performance, rushing for 170 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries. Russell Wilson threw four touchdown passes, three of which were reeled in by DK Metcalf — his most ever in one game. Tyler Lockett also caught three passes for 24 yards and a touchdown, and set a new career high for receiving yards in a season with 1,077.
