Ten Numbers Of Note From The Seahawks' Week 8 Win In Atlanta

Ten numbers that helped tell the story of the Seahawks’ Week 8 win over the Falcons. 


The Seahawks finished the first half of their season with a 6-2 record thanks to a 27-20 win over the Atlanta Falcons. While the Seahawks would have preferred to have finished Sunday's game stronger, the fact remains that they're off to one of the best eight-game starts to a season in franchise history, which leads our 10 numbers of note from the game:


Wins by the Seahawks in the first half of the season, only the sixth time in franchise history that the Seahawks have started a season 6-2 or better. The 2013 Seahawks were 7-1 in the first half of the season, while the 1984, 1999, 2003 and 2005 teams all started 6-2.


Straight wins on the road for the Seahawks this season, their first 4-0 road start since 1980.


Consecutive victories by the Seahawks, postseason included, when leading by 4 or more points at halftime since the 2012 season.


Career tackles for linebacker Bobby Wagner, the most in franchise history. Wagner moved ahead of safety Eugene Robinson on Sunday with a six-tackle game that also included a sack, a fumble recovery and a crucial pass breakup on a 2-point attempt late in the game.


Career tackles for linebacker K.J. Wright, who with 10 tackles Sunday moved ahead of Joe Nash for fourth place on Seattle's career list.


Touchdown passes for Russell Wilson, who has thrown just one interception this year. Per NFL Research, Wilson joined Drew Brees (2018) as the only players since the 1970 merger to have 17 touchdown passes with one or fewer interceptions through eight games.


Consecutive road games for Russell Wilson with at least one touchdown pass and no interceptions, passing Tom Brady (7 in 2010) and Nick Foles (7 in 2012-2013) for the longest streak of such road games. Since Week 8 of last season, Wilson has thrown 18 touchdowns with no interceptions in his last eight road games. Wilson also has a streak of nine straight road games with a passer rating of 110.0 or higher, which is also a league record.


The Seahawks' record since 2012 in games following an in-season loss.


Tackles by rookie safety Marquise Blair in his second-career start. The second-round pick out of Utah also forced a fumble at the 1-yard line that was a critical play in Sunday's win.


Receptions by Tyler Lockett for 100 yards on six targets. That's the fourth time in five games that Lockett has caught every pass intended for him dating back to Week 4.
