Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today —Tuesday, October 4 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Three Seahawks Listed In PFF's Top Performers
Pro Football Focus ranked the biggest standout performances from Week 4 of the NFL season. Three Seahawks players — tight end Jimmy Graham (second), quarterback Russell Wilson (sixth) and center Justin Britt (ninth) — made the list.
Graham caught six passes for 113 yards against the Jets, his second-straight week with 100-plus receiving:
The Graham situation hasn't exactly gone to plan in Seattle since the team traded with the Saints for him during the 2015 offseason for center Max Unger. He was an awkward fit initially within the offense, and then suffered a major injury that further derailed his progress. But this week we were reminded that he was once one of the league's best receiving weapons.
Battling an ankle and knee injury, Wilson went 23-of-32 and passed for 309 yards, plus three scores. Here's what PFF had to say about his performance:
Hobbled with injury and facing a New York Jets defensive front that was able to pressure him on 15 of his 35 dropbacks, Wilson was close to perfect this week. His passer rating when kept clean was 125.6 and he completed 85 percent of his passes. Though his numbers dropped when pressured, his passer rating was still a ludicrous 119.8 thanks to a couple of big-time throws under duress.
And here's a clip from what they said about Britt's outing:
Britt stood out against a tough Jets defensive front, while the rest of the Seattle line was struggling. He allowed no pressure in 35 pass-blocking snaps and run blocked well, allowing the Seahawks to average 4.3 yards per carry on either side of his block.

Robert Mays of The Ringer praised Wilson in his Week 4 recap.
*I guess Russell Wilson doesn't need two good knees. Playing with a sprained left knee and wearing a customized brace, Wilson was brilliant in a 27–17 win over the Jets. He went 23-of-32 for 309 yards with three touchdowns, and his signature drive came at the start of the second quarter, when he completed all four of his attempts. One was a beautiful, 27-yard, over-the-shoulder toss to Jimmy Graham up the seam; another was a 38-yard strike to Doug Baldwin that Wilson threw on the run after escaping trouble. *
It was just the sixth 300-yard regular-season game of Wilson's career, which seems impossible, but reiterates just how heavily Seattle has leaned on its running game in recent years. This year it's Wilson's show, and when he plays like he did on Sunday, that approach will work out just fine for the Seahawks.
And Vinnie Iyer of Sporting News says the rest of the NFC should be very afraid of the Seahawks.
