The second half of my Thanksgiving weekend double header was heading down to CenturyLink Field to capture the Seahawks as the hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers. There was a lot of gold and black in the stands for this one as all the Steeler fans came out of the woodwork. This was not a typical type of Seahawks game as the offense had to carry most of the burden as they got into a shootout with Big Ben and the Steelers. Russell Wilson had a huge day with five touchdown passes, three of them to Doug Baldwin on way to a 39-30 win over the Steelers.
It was a downright balmy and sunny December day as the division rival 49ers came to CenturyLink field. A loss would knock them out of the playoff hunt and a win by the Seahawks would keep them in the chase for best overall record in the NFC. Neither team really got clicking in the first half, but after the break, the Seahawks made the plays that they needed to and pull away with a 17-7 win.
This was my last game to shoot for the year. It’s been a great season and I have seen some great games and met some great people along the way.
Beast Mode was in full effect Sunday at CenturyLink Field as the Seahawks hosted the New York Giants. The Seahawks got back to the formula that has been so successful in the past, running the ball down the other team’s throats. The Hawks finished with a franchise record 350 total rushing yards, 140 of those belonged to Marshawn Lynch who also had 4 touchdowns on the day. The Giants actually had the lead at halftime, but the Hawks wore down the Giants defense on their way to a huge 4th quarter and a 38-17 win. It was a steady rain for most of the day and pretty heavy at times, especially when it was raining Skittles from the stands after a Lynch score.
