Seahawks’ offense goes off in Detroit

Leon Washington AP

In the Seahawks’ first seven games this season, they were held under 17 points five times. In Detroit today, the Seahawks scored 17 points in the first 19 minutes.

Seattle’s offense made big plays on the ground and through the air as the Seahawks took an early 17-7 lead. Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has a 77-yard touchdown run, Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice has a nine-yard touchdown catch, the Seahawks have also had big plays in the passing game from receiver Golden Tate and tight end Anthony McCoy.

Mistakes are continuing to hurt the Lions, who have five penalties for 61 yards so far, while the Seahawks have zero penalties. Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham gathered his unit and gave them a good screaming session on the sideline, but all the screaming in the world isn’t going to fix all the problems the Lions have right now. A touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford to Titus Young narrowed the gap to 17-14, but it’s another rough start in Detroit.

    This post should say something more along the lines of, “Lions pitiful defense makes even the Seahawks look potent”

    Seattle is great at home, very pedestrian on the road. Over rated.

    Aside from the 77 yard run…the Seahawks offense hasn’t really done all that much. The lions have handed them yards because of penalties…I wouldn’t say their offense is “going off” but that’s just me

    Good to see the Lions back where they belong…..i.e. the basement of NFL relevance. Detroit can’t catch a break…..getting owned by the SF Giants in the World Series……owned by the 49ers in football. Where those annoying Detroit fans now????

    Megatron whoooooooo? He was SHUT DOWN! I AND NOOO it wasn’t zone. He was manned up all day Browner and Sherman shut him down. His 3 catches were against the nickle cb. So save those excuses. Great win for Lions.
    Titus and those TE’s killed the Hawks you deserve kudos for that for sure! . Hell of a game Stafford. I predicted a blow out earlier and I was wrong. Sh*tty game Hawks Def huge letdown. First time the loss is there defenses fault.
