The Colts and Seahawks went at it in a primetime Sunday Night Football matchup in Week 4. Who came out on top at the end of the night?
The Seattle Seahawks looked pretty weak through the first few weeks of the 2017 season, but they proved on Sunday night that they’re back and looking to make some noise in the NFC with their big win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Things looked like we were in for another bleak night when the Seahawks were struggling in the first quarter, along with the first half in general, against the Colts. However, they turned it on in the second half as usual, and pulled out a big 46-18 win in the process.
There were a ton of highlight plays on defense on both sides, but Russell Wilson pulled out the real game-changing plays throughout the night when the second half rolled around. Check out some of the action below from a blowout win for the Seahawks:
1. Russell Wilson
The Seahawks quarterback put on a show for the Seahawks on Sunday night, and took control of the game in the second half. Whether he needed to score on the ground himself or by throwing the ball to someone else, he led the Seahawks in their blowout, and was the true star with his offensive performance, even with his two interceptions on the night.
2. J.D. McKissic
McKissic put on a strong performance in the Seahawks backfield, scoring both on the ground and through the air throughout the night. The team seems to be doing the running back by committee approach, but McKissic emerged as a star on Sunday night with his memorable performance against the Colts.
3. Luke Willson
The Wilson-to-Willson connection was strong on Sunday night, with both of them contributing to the scoring throughout the night. The tight end has been a reliable target for Russell Wilson in the passing game, and he always seems to be in the right place at the right time for the Seahawks when they need him the most.
The Seahawks were favored -14 on the night, according to Sportsbook review, and certainly lived up to the hype with their second half performance.
The Seahawks will square off against the NFC West-leading Rams next week in a huge game, while the Colts will look to bounce back against another NFC West opponent in the San Francisco 49ers on the road.
