Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Wednesday, Oct. 21 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
Seahawks Players Encourage Voting
With just under two weeks remaining until Election Day in the United States on Nov. 3, Seahawks players are stepping up. Back in August, the Seahawks announced that all of our players were officially registered to vote. Now, it's time to exercise that right to vote. The players have spoken about the importance of voting over the past few months, and have worked to raise awareness in big and small ways. Russell Wilson, for example, donned a "Vote" T-shirt for his Week 1 press conference.
You can learn more about voting, including who is running in your county, signing up for election reminders and more, by visiting our voter information page.
Safety Jamal Adams spoke about why he felt it was important to register to vote this year.
"If you care about where you live, I think those things are very important," Adams said. "Every step of the way is important. This is just a step to making change."
Russell Wilson, Seahawks' Offense Top PFF Grades Through Week 6
Led by quarterback Russell Wilson, the Seahawks' offense has been rolling on its way to a 5-0 start. The Seahawks lead the league in scoring at 33.8 points per game. Wilson, despite playing only five games due to the early bye week, still leads the league with 19 passing touchdowns.
On Pro Football Focus, Wilson and the Seahawks' offense received rave reviews despite not playing this past weekend. First up, PFF pointed out that Wilson's 94.6 grade (on a scale of 100) was best among all quarterbacks. Close behind him were the Packers' Aaron Rodgers and the Bucs' Tom Brady, but neither quite stacks up to Russ.
Then, PFF noted the offensive units with the highest grades in their system. The Seahawks slotted in just above the Titans, Rams and Packers. All four of those teams are in the playoff mix, with the Titans 5-0, the division rival Rams 4-2 and the Packers 4-1.
Social Post Of The Day
Just how good has the wide receiver duo of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett been this season? Well, the numbers tell the story.
