RUNNING AWAY WITH IT
Seattle rushed for 218 yards, the most allowed by the Vikings this season. Chris Carson had 102, including a 1-yard TD. Rashaad Penny added 74. The Vikings were giving up just 94 yards per game rushing. “Our running game has been a staple of our offense. That’s our foundation, and both of those guys are amazing backs. They’re really coming on,” Seattle offensive lineman Duane Brown said
Vikings LT Brian O’Neill vs. DE Jadaveon Clowney
Clowney forced a fumble and had a tackle for loss near the goal line but was held without a sack. O’Neill gets the edge.
PLAY OF THE GAME
At the end of the third quarter, Seattle QB Russell Wilson (3) completed a 60-yard TD pass to David Moore (83). Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes (29) expected help from a safety on the play but didn’t get any, and Moore breezed past him. Vikings S Anthony Harris shaded to the left on the play, and S Harrison Smith was near the line of scrimmage.
“The running game was working, and that helped set up some nice pass plays.”
