Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Tuesday, October 9 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Total QBR Ranks For Week 5
At ESPN.com, Seattle signal caller Russell Wilson ranks at No. 2 on the site's list of the best QBs from Week 5, when Wilson threw for 198 yards and three touchdowns on 13-of-21 passing for a 132.5 quarterback rating in a 33-31 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
ESPN's Total QBR statistic measures effectiveness on a per-play contribution (explained in greater detail right here) and rates Wilson's Total QBR at 84.0 out of 100 for this past Sunday's performance at CenturyLink Field, second only to the New Orleans Saints' Drew Brees' 90.2. ESPN credits Wilson for thriving in the face of defensive pressure, highlighting a second-quarter completion to receiver Tyler Lockett.
_The 15-yard completion to Tyler Lockett on third-and-10 in the second quarter was emblematic of Wilson's ability to beat a defense. The Rams dropped back into zone to mark the sticks and had every downfield receiver covered. Wilson got good protection and held the ball before running forward and appearing to scramble. Just before getting to the line of scrimmage, he floated a pass to Lockett, suddenly open by the defenders worried about Wilson running. Completion, first down. Wilson lost on Sunday but was excellent along the way. _
