    It was a long time coming for Coach Scikotic and the Seattle Seahawks. Accustomed to success in the passing game, his team had stumbled out of the gate with rookie Russell Wilson, and failed to produce on the ground game as well. Still nursing their wounds from their loss last week against the Packers where they allowed all of their 28 points given up off of turnovers, the Seahawks bounced back in a big way. Flynn started the game in place of Russell Wilson started until last week when he was abruptly yanked from the game and possibly for the foreseeable future.

    Matt Flynn taking over the reigns in Seattle may have provided the much needed spark they have been looking for, as he passed for 190 yards and a touchdown via air and ground. Flynn found a lane an a play-action pass late in the 2nd quarter, and scampered 33 yards to put the Hawks up 21-0. Marshawn Lynch ran wild for 156 yards and 2 touchdowns, taking much of the pressure of Flynn in his first start in Seattle.

    The defense was stout once again, but still providing little pressure from the D-Line and rookie Bruce Irvin. Coach Scikotic can sense Irvin getting close to getting his first sack, but the team still has much to do to generate better pressure. Their secondary and run defense have been top notch, allowing less than 150 total yards in their last 2 games.

    Now that the offense seems to have gotten on track, the Hawks may be ready for a run.
