The Seattle Seahawks have been know for their defense over the past several seasons and Pete Carroll’s team stayed true to their character in a 46-18 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Justin Coleman and Bobby Wagner were two notable stand outs for the Seattle defense, each player scored a defensive touchdown and when you can put up points defensively most of the time you’re going to walk away with a win. Russell Wilson had a decent performance in this game too he threw for 295 passing yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Wilson also ran for a rushing touchdown and did everything he could to help his team get the job done. Maybe the most surpassing performance in this match up was Seahawks Running Back J.D McKissic. McKissic was activated right before the game because C.J Prosise couldn’t play, McKissic responded by rushing for 1 touchdown and catching another touchdown. With the Seahawks being thin at the running back position expect J.D McKissic’s role to expand after such a strong performance. Jacoby Brissett looked good at moments for the Colts but it wasn’t enough to pull this one out. Brissett threw for 157 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. It’s obvious that Brissett can throw the football, he has a strong arm and can deliver strikes. However Jacoby Brisset has to avoid turnovers in order to become an elite player in this league. That will come with maturity but there’s definitely some potential there for the Colts signal caller. Robert Turbin ended up rushing for a Colts touchdown in the 2nd quarter, while Donte Moncrief added another Indianapolis touchdown shortly after. In the second half though the Seahawks outscored the Colts 36-3. It’s obvious Chuck Pagano’s team came out flat after halftime and that ended up costing Indianapolis the win. The Seahawks improved to 2-2 on the year and should be a little bit more confident heading into a week 5 NFC West showdown against the Los Angeles Rams. On the other hand the Colts will take on the San Francisco 49ers in what should be a winnable game for them.
