The Seahawks moved into first place in the NFC West with a 37-23 win over the Chargers on Sunday, a game in which the Seahawks were “humming” in all three phases. In addition to that final score, here are 12 numbers that helped tell the story of Sunday's win in Los Angeles:
Rushing yards gained by Kenneth Walker III in his second career start, giving the rookie back 265 yards in the last two games, the highest total in a player's first two career stars in franchise history.
The length of Walker's second touchdown run on Sunday. With a 69-yard score two weeks earlier, Walker is the first rookie with two 65-plus yard touchdown runs since Saquon Barkley in 2018.
Touchdown receptions for Marquise Goodwin, his first two in a Seahawks uniform.
Passes defensed by safety Ryan Neal, who also had an interception. Neal is the first Seahawk with four passes defensed in a game since current Seahawks assistant defensive backs coach DeShawn Shead did it in Week 12 of the 2015 season, and Neal is the first with four passes defensed and an interception since Earl Thomas in Week 6 of the 2015 season.
Geno Smith's passer rating after throwing two touchdowns with one interception on Sunday, his fourth game with a passer rating over 100 this season (he also had a rating of 99.1 in another game). Smith's rating of 107.7 this season leads the NFC and is third in the NFL behind Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen. Smith also leads the NFL in completion percentage at 73.5.
Defensive snaps played by Bruce Irvin in his first game back with the Seahawks, fourth most among outside linebackers behind Uchenna Nwosu, Darrell Taylor and Boye Mafe.
Forced fumbles by Darrell Taylor, who has a strip sack in each of the past two games. That's tied for the second most forced fumbles in the league this season behind Seahawks rookie Coby Bryant's four.
Defensive snaps played by nickel corner Coby Bryant, meaning the Seahawks were in nickel or dime for 96 percent of their defensive snaps.
Sacks recorded by Seattle's defense, an impressive showing considering that Justin Herbert had been sacked just seven times in the Chargers' first six games.
Takeaways for Seattle's defense, the sixth game this season in which the defense has multiple takeaways.
The length of Jason Myers' third field goal of the game, making him 3 for 3 from 50 or more yards this season, and 15 for 16 overall on field goal attempts.
The length, in time, of Seattle's third-quarter possession that ended in a field goal, a drive Seahawks coach Pete Carroll called "the drive of the game."
