The Seahawks’ 21-7 win over the Vikings is what Dave Wyman calls a beautiful game. That’s because as a former NFL linebacker, Dave likes defense. And there were a lot of great defensive plays, especially from Seattle, on Monday night at CenturyLink Field.

Heaps: Why Seahawks’ passing game was grounded vs Vikings

One of those plays was a big stop on fourth down in the third quarter by Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner and defensive end Frank Clark that gave the Seahawks the ball back and prevented Minnesota from getting into field goal range at a time when the Vikings trailed just 3-0.

In this week’s installment of Football 101, the radio color commentator of the Seahawks breaks down why the play the Vikings called had no chance from the start and how Wagner and Clark executed so well to combine on the tackle.
