Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Tuesday, October 30 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Wilson, Carson Earn High Grades From PFF

In its weekly Team of the Week feature, analytics website Pro Football Focus highlights Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Chris Carson for the pair's standout play in Seattle's 28-14 Week 8 road win over the Detroit Lions. Wilson headlines PFF's Team of the Week with a 98.0 grade, while Carson's 80.9 mark holds down the running back spot. 

Here's what PFF had to say about Wilson, who in Sunday's win became the first signal caller in franchise history to register a perfect 158.3 passer rating (minimum 10 attempts):

Wilson delivered one of the best performances you will see from a quarterback all year. Completing 14 of his 17 pass attempts for 248 yards, Wilson threw three touchdowns and no interceptions. Even when the Lions were able to put him under pressure, Wilson still went 5-for-7 for 82 yards. He finished the game having completed all nine of his pass attempts targeted at least 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage, including going 3-for-3 for 96 yards and a touchdown on throws 20-plus yards downfield.

And here's what PFF offered on Carson, who had his third 100-yard game of the season, gaining 105 yards on 25 carries, including a 7-yard touchdown burst in the fourth quarter to help seal a Seahawks victory:

Wilson wasn't the only player on the Seahawks offense to impress, as Carson went over 100-yard mark against the Lions. Five of his 25 carries resulted in a first down or touchdown, and he forced six missed tackles as well.
