Seahawks offense erupts in 46 to 18 win over Colts

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.
