The Seattle Seahawks (2-2) busted out of their scoring slump with a 22 point third quarter on thier way to a 46 to 18 win over the Indianapolis Colts (1-3).
The Seahawks offense managed a 44-yard field goal and had to rely on a Justin Coleman pick-six of a Jacoby Brissett to get them to double digits in the first half. The Seahawks gave up a safety and interception which the Colts converted into two touchdowns, a Robert Turbin one-yard run and an 18 yard Brissett to Donte Moncrief.
The Colts attempted an unsuccessful two-point conversation after the Turbin TD run when Brissett’s pass to Tight End Jack Doyle was incomplete. The Seahawks first-half offensive woes continued when Bush missed a 37-yard field goal to end the first half they went into the locker room down 10-15.
With the defense stifling the Colts offense quarterback Russell Wilson decided it was time for action. Wilson started the third quarter offensive explosion with a 23-yard touchdown run that was followed by another TD run by J. D. McKissic from the 30 yards out.
The Colts Adam Vinatieri booted a 40-yard field to halt the scoring spree but it was momentary as Bobby Wagner scored the second defensive touchdown of the game when he scooped up a Brissett fumble and rambled 21 yards for the touchdown.
Wilson continued the scoring spree well into the fourth quarter when he hit Luke Wilson on a six-yard TD pass play and put an exclamation mark on the offensive eruption with a 27 yard TD pass to J. D.McKissic.
- Rookie running back Chris Carson suffered an ankle injury in the fourth quarter
- Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril left the game because of a neck injury.
- Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane had a hip injury and there were no further updates.
- Starting left tackle Rees Odhiambo had a chest injury and will spend the night in a the hospital as a precautionary measure according to Carroll. All his vital signs are fine Carroll said.”
