Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Monday, January 28 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
2019 Pro Bowl: AFC 26, NFC 7
At a rain-soaked Camping World Stadium on Sunday in Orlando, Fla., the Seahawks and the NFC fell to the AFC, 26-7, in the 2019 Pro Bowl, but Seattle's Pro Bowl-trio of quarterback Russell Wilson, linebacker Bobby Wagner, and punter Michael Dickson each had standout moments from the contest.
Wilson got the start at quarterback for the NFC, launching a 36-yard pass to Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams on the conference's opening possession. The Seattle signal caller played into the second quarter, completing 5-of-8 passes for a team-high 68 yards.
“It feels like Seattle, it’s raining pretty good,” Wilson joked during an in-game sideline interview on ESPN. “It’s always fun being out here, no matter what. We really enjoy it, so it’s a blessing."
Wagner, meanwhile, tallied five tackles, tied for the game's second-highest total, and executed a leap over the line of scrimmage in an attempt to block an extra point by AFC kicker Jason Myers. Wagner was flagged on the play, but it was fun to see the Seahawks defensive captain's hops in action once again.
And with it being a slow day offensively for the NFC, Dickson found himself plenty busy, booting four punts for 173 yards (43.3-yard average), including a 52-yard long that the Australia native directed out of bounds inside the AFC’s 10-yard-line.
For the AFC, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and New York Jets safety Jamal Adams took home Pro Bowl MVP honors.
