plan was pretty good Justin Britt Color Rush Jersey , too.Wilson threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter to put the Seahawks ahead and they went on to beat the Detroit Lions 28-14 Sunday, leaning on their running game and defense just as they have throughout their turnaround.“We can do whatever we want right now,” Wilson said.The Seahawks (4-3) looked sharp on both sides of the ball coming off their bye and won for the fourth time in five games after opening the season with two losses.“I’m always going to regret that we started lousy,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.Wilson completed 10 passes, two for scores, before having an incompletion late in the second quarter. He finished 14 of 17 for 248 yards, leading to a perfect quarterback rating. Wilson’s 24-yard pass to Tyler Lockett, 15-yard throw to David Moore and 12-yard pass to Ed Dickson for touchdowns gave Seattle a 21-7 lead at halftime.Chris Carson, who had 105 of Seattle’s 176 yards rushing, scored on a 7-yard run early in the fourth to put the Seahawks up 28-7.“We ran 42 times,” Carroll said. “I couldn’t be more fired up about that.”Detroit acquired run-stuffing defensive tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison from the New York Giants for a fifth-round pick just four days before the game, but he wasn’t able to immediately help one of the NFL’s worst run defenses.“We have to start learning how to play off him,” Lions defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois said.The Lions (3-4) had won three of four in large part because they didn’t turn the ball over much and finally found a running game. They lost the ball three times and had just 34 yards rushing against Seattle.“I’ve got to do a better job getting the team ready,” Detroit coach Matt Patricia said.The Lions got off to a solid start against Seattle, breaking a scoreless tie late in the first quarter on Matthew Stafford’s 39-yard pass to Marvin Jones. The Lions were then held scoreless for two quarters before Stafford threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Jones early in the fourth to cut the deficit to 14.Stafford lost a fumble midway through the fourth quarter and threw an interception with 3:08 to go at the Seattle 1.SURPRISE!To seal the victory, Seahawks punter Michael Dickson ran out of his end zone and gained 9 yards on a fourth-and-8 from the Seattle 3 on a play that was designed for him to take a safety.“He went against all traditions and everything, but he saw the situation and he took advantage of it,” Carroll said. “It was truly a surprise .”Clearly, the Lions also did not see the play coming.“We’ll go back and look at it and see where the breakdown was in that situation,” Patricia said. “He saw the space and he took it.”BEGINNING OF ENDThe game, though, began to slip away from Detroit earlier in the afternoon when Ameer Abdullah fumbled on a kickoff return in the second quarter.Wilson took advantage, connecting with Moore for a go-ahead touchdown pass that went off his left arm and helmet before he grabbed it. On Seattle’s next drive, Carroll won a challenge to have Moore credited with a catch to keep a drive going that ended with Dickson’s touchdown.“A year ago, that would not have been a catch,” Carroll said.STAFFORD SETBACKStafford was 27 of 40 for 310 with two touchdowns, an interception and a fumble. He had thrown two touchdowns without an interception in the previous three games. Unlike recent games Nazair Jones Color Rush Jersey , he could not rely on a running game and was forced to throw more than planned.“We were coming in with a balanced game plan and obviously the score got to where it was,” Stafford said. “We had to try and do some things to get back into it.”TIMELY CELEBRATIONThe Seahawks celebrated Lockett’s touchdown with a nod to baseball just hours before Game 5 of the World Series. Lockett was trying to look like a pitcher when he threw the football and hit Doug Baldwin, who ran at his teammate as if he was charging the mound and was hit with a phantom punch.Wilson, who played two seasons of minor league baseball, joined in and threw a fake punch.“I came out of the bullpen for that one,” he joked.INJURY REPORTSeahawks: SS Bradley McDougald left with an apparent shoulder injury, but was able to return. “He got banged around, but he was ill,” Carroll said.Dickson and linebacker K.J. Wright returned from injuries to play for the first time this season. “It’s a great boost,” Carroll said.Lions: LB Christian Jones left in the fourth quarter with a knee injury.UP NEXTSeahawks: Host Los Angeles Chargers next Sunday.Lions: At Minnesota next Sunday. Over the past week plus we’ve looked through eight of the nine draft picks of the Seattle Seahawks from the 2018 NFL Draft in order to attempt to grade the most recent draft class with the benefit of a season of hindsight. So far we’ve gone through the selections of First round running back Rashaad Penny,Third round defensive end Rasheem Green, Seventh round quarterback Alex McGough, Sixth round defensive end Jacob Martin, Fifth round tackle Jamarco Jones, Fifth round punter Michael Dickson,Fifth round linebacker Shaquem Griffin and Fourth round tight end Will Dissly.That leaves just one member of the 2018 Seahawks draft class left to be evaluated, and that is obviously Cornerback Tre Flowers, a sixth round selection out of Oklahoma State University. Flowers was yet another in a not short line of college safety to professional cornerback conversion projects for Pete Carroll, following in the path of players like Eric Pinkins and Mike Tyson. However, the path for Flowers has been far different than that of Pinkins and Tyson, who never successfully made the transition to cornerback in the NFL for the Seahawks. And for those who know what they are looking at and analyzing, the selection of Flowers by the Hawks did not come as a surprise, as Field Gulls own Matty F. Brown predicted back in the spring on the morning of day three of the draft. (Author’s note: Matty may well have been correct on Wyatt Teller and Ian Thomas, but we’ll never know. Thomas, a tight end, was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the fourth round, and with their next pick the Hawks selected Will Dissly. Teller 12th Fan Color Rush Jersey , an offensive lineman was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the fifth round, and two picks later the Seahawks drafted Jamarco Jones. So, has anybody ever seen Tony Romo and Matty F. Brown in the same room?)Flowers, as would be expected, struggled at times during his rookie season, but he also showed enough to warrant hope for the future. Add in the fact that he played much of the season as a member of an extremely young secondary, and it is no surprise that the team struggled at times to stop opposing offenses. However, Flowers remains extremely young, as he and Shaquill Griffin team up to make a starting cornerback pair that combined is about the same age as Tom Brady. Okay, that is a bit of an exaggeration, as Brady is 41 years old, and both Griffin and Flowers are set to turn 24 later this offseason, it’s not as much of an exaggeration as one might first imagine. However, looking past just his age and his status as a conversion project, Flowers played a significant amount as a rookie in 2018. Specifically, his 903 defensive snaps were the most that any Seahawks draft pick has played on either offense or defense since Justin Britt logged 1,058 snaps as a rookie in 2014. Just to put how many snaps Flowers logged in perspective, here’s a sampling of some other recent Seahawks draft picks and how many snaps they have played since being drafted:2016 3rd Round Pick TE Nick Vannett: 890 offensive snaps2016 3rd Round Pick RB C.J. Prosise: 251 offensive snaps2016 5th Round Pick DT Quinton Jefferson: 707 defensive snaps2016 6th Round Pick C Joey Hunt: 181 offensive snaps2015 6th Round Pick LB Eric Pinkins: 5 defensive snaps2015 5th Round Pick TE Luke Willson: 2,564 offensive snaps2015 5th Round Pick CB Tye Smith: 125 defensive snaps (with the Tennessee Titans in 2017)So, that’s just a sampling of some other draft picks and how much they have contributed since being drafted. Obviously, Flowers will need to continue to show growth and development to maintain his starting role, but if he can do that and get good injury luck, there’s no reason to doubt his ability to be a long term contributor for the Seahawks.In any case, it will certainly be interesting to watch the defensive back group continue to develop in the coming seasons. The Hawks are loaded with young potential in the secondary. and after consecutive seasons of a middle of the road scoring defense it will certainly be fun to watch what Carroll can do as the league continues to move more and more towards a passing league.
