Seattle Seahawks: 5 Stats to Know from Sunday’s Win Over the Giants

1. Four

Four—number of rushing touchdowns by Marshawn Lynch, a career high.

2. Five

Five—the number of quarterback hits by Cliff Avril. The Seahawks have had trouble getting pressure on the quarterback, which has taken a toll on the effectiveness of the secondary. While Avril didn’t have any sacks, getting to the quarterback five times can only be looked at as a positive.

3. Eight

Eight—total tackles by Jeron Johnson in his first NFL start filling in for Kam Chancellor.

4. 350

350—rushing yards by the Seahawks, a franchise record. Marshawn Lynch had 140 yards on 21 carries, Russell Wilson added 107 on 14 carries, Christine Michael finished with four carries and 71 yards while Robert Turbin rounded out the group with six carries for 32 yards.

5. 17

17—number of pass attempts by quarterback Russell Wilson. The Super Bowl winning QB has only attempted fewer passes once in his professional career. That career low (13) came in a 58-0 thrashing of the Cardinals in December 2012.

Next week the Seahawks travel to Kansas City to face the 6-3 Chiefs.
