Chalk Talk: Jermaine Kearse’s touchdown vs. Bucs

The 16-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Jermaine Kearse kick-started the Seahawks’ comeback win over Tampa Bay, and it’s the focus of this week’s edition of “Chalk Talk” with Brock Huard.

The situation: Trailing 21-0 late in the second quarter, the Seahawks started at their own 20-yard line and drove deep into Tampa Bay territory, putting them in position to head into halftime down two scores instead of three. They faced a first-and-10 from the Buccaneers’ 16.

The play: Seattle lined up with one receiver on the left side and three on the right, with Jermaine Kearse in between Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate. Wilson faked a bubble screen to Baldwin, the inside receiver, before hitting a wide-open Kearse for the touchdown.

The statement: “We knew if we could get them to bite on the bubble we had some areas where we could attack them,” Kearse said. “Russ made a tremendous throw and I just tried to make the play.”
