Twelve numbers that helped tell the story of Monday night’s win over the Eagles. John Boyle
The Seahawks returned home early Tuesday morning in first place and with an 8-3 record thanks to Monday night's 23-17 win in Philadelphia, a game that saw DK Metcalf put together another dominant performance, and that saw the play of the defense continue to trend in a positive direction. In addition to that final score, here are 12 numbers that helped tell the story of another Seahawks win in Philadelphia:
Turnovers by the offense for a second straight week. The Seahawks are now 4-0 this season when they don't turn the ball over, and 8-0 when they have one or zero turnovers.
Yards gained by the Eagles, the lowest total by a Seahawks opponent this season. The Eagles went three-and-out on five straight possessions to start the game, had minus-3 yards after one quarter, and didn't cross midfield until late in the second quarter.
Sacks recorded by the Seahawks defense.
Sacks over the past five games, a big turnaround for a defense that had nine sacks in the first six games.
Receiving yards for DK Metcalf, a new career high.
Metcalf's receiving total in his last two games in Philadelphia.
Sacks made by Jamal Adams in seven games, matching the career high he set last season. According to NFL Research, Adams is the first defensive back to record six or more sacks in consecutive seasons since sacks became an official stat in 1982.
Sacks made by Carlos Dunlap II in as many games with the Seahawks since arriving in a trade with Cincinnati.
Consecutive seasons for Russell Wilson with at 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns, making him one of two players, along with Peyton Manning, to hit those marks in each of his first nine seasons.
Tackles for Bobby Wagner this season after he added five more on Monday. Wagner is just the third player since 2000 to record 100 tackles in nine straight seasons.
Consecutive field goals made by kicker Jason Myers, including all 15 attempts this season and three on Monday night. Myers is four more field goals away from matching Olindo Mare's franchise record for consecutive makes.
Nick Bellore's team-leading special teams tackle total after he added another on Monday night.
