From The Press

Here at, digital media reporter John Boyle highlights quarterback Russell Wilson's five touchdown performance and shares five key takeaways from Sunday's win that saw the Seattle offense lead the way.

Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham suffered a torn patellar tendon in Sunday's win, an injury that will require surgery and end his first season in Seattle early.

Doug Baldwin scored three touchdowns in yesterday's game to become the first Seahawks player with three receiving touchdowns in a game since Joey Galloway did it in 1997.

Peter King at names Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson one of his Offensive Players of the Week in his Monday Morning Quarterback column, adding the comment, "There's a bit of emptiness not giving this award to Ben Roethlisberger, who, in the first game he ever played in Seattle, threw for a Seahawk-opponent record of 456 yards. But Wilson was spectacular, especially late. Three times he led touchdown drives in the fourth quarter. Three times he finished those with touchdown passes, one to Jermaine Kearse and two to Doug Baldwin. This was Wilson's 67th NFL game, regular season and playoffs, and twice before he'd thrown four touchdowns in a game. Never had he thrown five—until Sunday. His numbers: 21 of 30, 345 yards, five touchdowns, no interceptions, and the third-highest passer rating of his career, 147.9."
