Monday Round-Up: Media Reactions To Seahawks' Week 3 Loss To The Vikings

Local and national media sounded off after the Seahawks’ road loss to the Vikings on Sunday.


Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Monday, Sept. 27 – for your Seattle Seahawks.

What's Being Said: Vikings 30, Seahawks 17

The Seahawks suffered their second straight loss in Week 3, falling to the Vikings in Minnesota 30-17 after allowing 23 unanswered points. Russell Wilson and the offense was locked in early, with Wilson and DK Metcalf connecting for a 10-yard touchdown on the opening drive. Wilson finished the game 23 of 32 passing for 298 yards and one touchdown, while Metcalf led receivers with six catches for 107 yards and a score. Chris Carson had 80 yards on the ground, including a 30-yard touchdown run that gave Seattle a 17-7 lead early in the second quarter.

The offense and the defense both struggled in the second half. Seattle was held scoreless in the final 41 minutes after Carson's touchdown despite not turning the ball over. Minnesota controlled the clock, winning the time of possession battle by over 11 minutes. Even though the Seahawks' defense didn't allow a touchdown in the second half, three close field goals were enough to put the game out of reach.
