Seahawks Football 101: A close look at run defense’s returning issues

Nov 30, 2022, 4:04 PM

For a few weeks, it seemed like the Seattle Seahawks had fixed their issues defending against the run.

That clearly hasn’t been the case their last two games, though.

NFL Draft insider on why ’22 Seahawks class hit, possible ’23 targets

Seattle allowed 161 rushing yards to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a Week 10 loss, then following a bye week the Hawks were torched by the Raiders for 283 yards on the ground last Sunday. Las Vegas running back Josh Jacobs in particular ran all over Seattle’s defense with 229 yards and two touchdowns on 33 carries.

So what is going on? Former NFL linebacker, current Seahawks Radio Network color commentator and Wyman and Bob co-host Dave Wyman takes a close look by putting the biggest from the Raiders game under the microscope in a new edition of Football 101.

That play? Jacobs’ 86-yard run in overtime that ended the game and gave Las Vegas the win.

The Seahawks will look to get back on track when they head to Los Angeles to take on the struggling Rams in a 1:05 p.m. game Sunday. Wyman will be on the broadcast alongside the voice of the Seahawks, Steve Raible, with coverage starting at 10 a.m. with the pregame show on Seattle Sports 710 AM and KIRO Radio 97.3 FM.
