Seahawks put it all together in Atlanta

Seattle Seahawks v Atlanta Falcons Getty Images

The Seahawks made things more difficult than they needed to be against the Buccaneers last weekend, but this week’s date with an NFC South foe would not be a repeat.

Seattle scored on seven of their first eight possessions and cruised to a 33-10 victory over the Falcons. That improves the Seahawks to an NFC-best 9-1 and leaves them in the driver’s seat in the quest for both the NFC West title and the conference’s top playoff seed.

There weren’t any areas for the Seahawks to find fault with themselves on Sunday. Russell Wilson was 19-of-26 for 287 yards and two touchdowns, Marshawn Lynch ran for 145 yards and a score and Jermaine Kearse continued to blossom as a deep threat in the Seattle offense. Defensively, the Seahawks held the Falcons to just 226 yards and would have at least doubled their total of two sacks if not for penalties that wiped out other hits on Matt Ryan.

If there’s been any slight on the Seahawks this season, it’s that they haven’t always played a complete game while winning a lot more than they’re losing. That complaint can go on the shelf this week, because the Seahawks looked every bit the team that their record says they are.

    Now if only Seattle could find a way to win on the road….

    Go Hawks! NFC West Title or Bust!

  3. seahawkgoat says: Nov 10, 2013 4:15 PM

    Tate has done much better than I would have predicted as a WR1. Will be a great weapon when Percy gets back. Seattle has a legitimate 3 WR set now, with Kearse as a bonus. I’m assuming Z. Miller will get more involved as well once Seattle’s line gets fully healthy, as he won’t have to stay in to block as much.

    Great game. Can’t wait for the NO/SF stretch to see where Seattle really sits.

    The Seahawks seemed really focused today

    The adderol must have kicked in

  5. beastmode5150 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:17 PM

    Without three best lineman. Best athlete, best run stopped and #2 corner.

  6. bus035 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:18 PM

    That would be 9-1, Homie!

  7. beastmode5150 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:18 PM

    The record you got wrong, they are 9-1.

  8. mf1849 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:18 PM

    Outstanding game. The first this year where the Seahawks dominated on both sides of the ball from the beginning. Waiting on the haters and trolls!!!

  9. hawkmode says: Nov 10, 2013 4:18 PM

    I’m pretty sure that means they’re 9-1

    GoHawks!

  10. albanyhawker says: Nov 10, 2013 4:19 PM

    Theyre 91, but who’s counting??!!

  11. thefox61 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:19 PM

    NFC best 9-1.
    Go Hawks!

  12. david10654 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:20 PM

    Seattle is actually 9-1, not 8-1

  13. johneerocket says: Nov 10, 2013 4:22 PM

    That would be 9-1, actually. Go Hawks!

  14. jason9696 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:23 PM

    Seattle looked great today. But anyone would look great against Atlanta this year.

  15. v16009 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:25 PM

    GO HAWKS!

  16. hawkstradamus says: Nov 10, 2013 4:28 PM

    All non Seahawks fans can head on over to walterfootballs moch draft, cause we got this.

  17. stampnhawk says: Nov 10, 2013 4:31 PM

    Browner injury is tough. But Maxwell stepped in played well.

    Lynch with pure beast mode.

    O line played excellent, full credit with all the injuries.

    Ryan looks severely overrated. Only moved down the field thanks to some iffy penalties, on third downs no less.

    Shame Seattle couldn’t have held on for 45 seconds in January as I think arrogant Smith would be on the hot seat.

    Home vs Minny then finally the bye. Win like this gets the team back on track after 2 so so games the last couple weeks.

  18. seahawks3 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:32 PM

    NFC-best 9-1

  19. 12thmanhawks says: Nov 10, 2013 4:35 PM

    Stay classy my fellow Seahawks fan. Lets be humble by this win. Go hawks

  20. realitycheckbaby says: Nov 10, 2013 4:38 PM

    Seattle tends to play down to competition at times, but were motivated by last year’s playoff loss.

    Come playoff time they’ll be motivated every game.

    Who is going to beat them?

  21. shlort says: Nov 10, 2013 4:38 PM

    The ‘Hawks are playing some good ball again… but the bigger headline should be “What the hell is wrong with the Falcons?”

    The Falcons were really good last year (and years before), then this year rolls around and they are absolutely horrible. What changed there? Doesn’t make sense to me.

  22. mrwalterisgod says: Nov 10, 2013 4:45 PM

    How many teams can suffer the injuries Seattle has and get to 9-1?

    Best team in the league. And don’t give me that Denver crap, and don’t even dare bring up KC and their league worst 5.7 yards per pass attempt offense.

  23. mf1849 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:45 PM

    Outstanding game!

    No pass rush + poor O-line + 2 rookie CB’s + injuries to their best players = rebuilding Falcons team, hopefully without Thomas Dimitroff as his flawed “process” & drafting players that fit his “system”.

  25. beastmode5150 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:52 PM

    The “it was just the falcons” crowd, Vegas had the hawks only a 3 point favorite, so you don’t actually know what you are talking about.

  26. rrthomasxyz says: Nov 10, 2013 4:55 PM

    Christine Michael is a wiggler. He runs best when he is given freedom to create rather than hit a pre-designated gap. He is the best rookie back in the league but we’ll have to wait 1-2 years to watch him run

  27. rockinchox says: Nov 10, 2013 5:08 PM

    How many teams would be 9-1 with these injuries this year? Look at he Falcons and their season is poor because of injuries. Would be very easy for Seattle to fall into same mindset. Gotta give credit where due.

    Go Hawks

  28. therealsmiley says: Nov 10, 2013 5:20 PM

    Seahawks are a good team. I wish their fans were good winners I would actually root for them. Hail!!

  29. nyjetsfan08 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:23 PM

    I bet the owner is wishing he could take that Matt Ryan contract back.

  30. seenoland54 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:29 PM

    It’s not the injuries that make the Falcons bad, it’s completely ignoring the line on both sides of the ball year after year to get big name “weapons”. Let that stand as a stark reminder to every NFL team that the game of football starts up front. Get a great line and an average back will look great…on either side of the ball. Blank and company blew it big time, they got names just to get suckers to pony up for over priced season tickets. You can bet it will be a long time before people come back to drink from that well. Good luck with your seat licensing, Blank.

  31. seenoland54 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:32 PM

    Matt would do just fine with even an average line. What is going on in Atlanta reminds me of the days of Bartkowski, you had a monster arm and a sieve for a line and what do you get? A quarterback running for his life or crippled for life and the same for running backs.

  32. thebirdofprey2 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:41 PM

    I was excited to see Christine Michael who Seattle is stashing behind Lynch/Turbo and man does he looks explosive when he plays.

    Tony G is still a baller but Seattle dominated all 3 phases. The offensive line looked excellent today considering we were down 3 men and rotated in our rookies. I know ATL not a good run team by any means I was just happy to see the Hawks hold their gaps and shut down the run for the most part.

    The refs called Michael Bennett’s sack roughing the pass when he trips Matt Ryan with his hands??

  33. novoodoo4409 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:48 PM

    Seabirds are like the Falcants….never won a SB, just a good regular season team…win the big game first, losers….stay classy, ringless delusional fans….lmao…

    Sincerely,
    The Who Dat Nation

  34. novoodoo4409 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:49 PM

    How many SB rings da Seabirds have? Right….ssshhhh….

    Settle down there Who Dat Nation that just lost to Jets.

  36. scmems07 says: Nov 10, 2013 6:48 PM

    Yay! Yet another win for Seattle on the league easiest schedule! Now on the the power house Vikings! Cupcake

  37. mf1849 says: Nov 10, 2013 6:52 PM

    Time will tell, Who Dat Nation, time will tell, but for right now and as of this week the Super Bowl runs through Seattle (or for Joetoronto, Alaska) and y’all got a date on the road with us. We’ll see you then.

  38. azjohnny says: Nov 10, 2013 6:55 PM

    Until recently the Saints were one of the biggest loser franchises in NFL history….really the fans were known to go to the games with bags on their heads

    Of course when you get to play 49ers twice a year and make them say “uncle” each time, things couldn’t get easier. You do understand your team basically played the same teams and has 3 losses.

  42. sweetnlow44 says: Nov 10, 2013 7:22 PM

    Will the 49er fans be in a trolling mood after losing to a team at home that the Seahawks beat on the road? You know, one of those “bad” teams that the Seahawks barely beat?

  43. akuma9000 says: Nov 10, 2013 7:28 PM

    Second week in a row, with the game out of reach, Matt Ryan is closing out the game by throwing a half dozen or so little 5 yard passes as time runs out instead of at least trying to heave it down field to try and score. It’s obvious he’s just ‘padding his stats’ but no one is talking about it.

  44. scmems07 says: Nov 10, 2013 7:30 PM

    mf1849

    [Legion of doom]?

    You mean legion of boom? The fans don’t even know their own teams nickname lol. You would think they would since their nicknames were just stolen from a&m and a wrestling tag team

    And I’m not a niner fan geniuses.

  45. mf1849 says: Nov 10, 2013 7:39 PM

    Ah, don’t cry l’il guy. You can always cross your fingers, toes, eyes, etc. for next week.

    Falcons may be the worst team in the league right now.

    Seahawks impressed today and showed they are who we all thought they were. All the NFC West Teams showed how good the Division is this season. Three NFCW teams make the playoffs this season.

  57. onlyanoyster says: Nov 11, 2013 1:15 AM

    Seahawks will have their starting O-line back by the time they play the Saints and 49ers in December. Hello #1 seed!

  58. jchuber says: Nov 11, 2013 10:19 AM

    Did I hear a fourty-whiners fan crying about being a dominant team? Carolina took ‘em to the woodshed and flat whopped their butts.

    That same QB also has 8 come from behind victories.. second only to Andrew Luck. He also has better overall stats than Luck.
    Pretty sure that if you ask around the league you will find plenty of takers.
