Defenses dominating in Seattle

Points have been tough to come by in the Dolphins-Seahawks game. Yards have been difficult to come by, too.

The Seahawks held a 6-3 halftime lead, and the teams traded punts to begin the second half. Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills dropped what would have been a sure touchdown pass in the first half, but otherwise the defenses have been a step ahead of their counterparts.

The Seahawks have used both of their top running backs, Christine Michael and Thomas Rawls. Wide receiver Doug Baldwin has made the biggest plays for the Seahawks in the passing game.

Running back Arian Foster has been busy for the Dolphins, as advertised. Foster caught two passes for 56 yards in the first half. Dolphins safety Isa Abdul-Quddus intercepted Russell Wilson for the game’s only turnover in the first half.

    Did the dolphins forget to fly the offence to Seattle. In for another disappointing showing. Boy are they bad. Be lucky to break a hundred yards. Tannehill looks confused.

    Seahawks are the benefactors of some good home cooking by this referee crew….

    Suh’s tread on Wikson’s ankle was nothing more than accidental.

    Alas, means the same for Wilson – he can’t plant his foot to throw.

    Some observations:
    Seattle’s OLine stinks out loud. This is the year Wilson gets injured and misses time.
    The D is nasty as usual.
    Seattle leads the league in ‘look at me’ players after even the most basic plays.

    Win or lose, seattle is garbage

    Seattle barely beats one of the worst teams in the NFL. Lol. Seahawks will be lucky to sneak in as a wildcard. They might go 8-8. No playoffs.

    The Dolphins lost… But to all you claiming they would get killed and lose by 30 pts, well they are not the same ol’ losers and the Seahawks fans will tell you that. Some bad officiating and a dropped Stills ball was the difference. Could have gone either way.

    Week ten nobody cares about how anything happend, all that matters is if you won or lost. Record is 1-0.

    Last year the Seahawks started out with a loss to the Rams. Russell just survived an ankle stomp by Suh to bring his team back in the last minute with a game-winning TD pass still limping.

    Talk about anything you want haters, doesn’t matter. Russell just added to his lore. That is all that will be remembered about this game.

    1-0 GO HAWKS! Kudos to the Miami Dolphins good game. Put up an excellent fight.

    The “real” score is on the scoreboard. Shoulda, woulda, coulda, doesn’t count.

    Over reaction Monday for the haters, as usual. It’s a preseason game for the starting lineup.
