Heaps: How Lockett, Metcalf TDs show Seahawks’ offense is rolling

The Seahawks’ 40-34 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 9 of the NFL season was maybe too close for comfort, but there’s one thing in the final score that should be taken as a positive.

Huard: Seahawks’ addition of Gordon sent message to DK

That would be the 40 points the Seahawks put on the board, which really only happens if an offense is clicking on all cylinders. That was certainly the case for Seattle and its quarterback Russell Wilson, who completed 29 of 43 passing attempts for 378 yards, no interceptions and a whopping five touchdowns. Two of those touchdown passes – one to Tyler Lockett and one to DK Metcalf – are where our focus is in this week’s video breakdown from former Seahawks QB Jake Heaps.

Heaps, who now co-hosts Tom, Jake and Stacy on 710 ESPN Seattle, opens the video by looking at Lockett’s 19-yard TD catch in the first quarter, which was the first score for the Seahawks against Tampa Bay and the first of two touchdown receptions on the day for Lockett, who led Seattle with 152 yards on 13 catches.

Second up is Metcalf’s touchdown in the fourth quarter, which accounted for 53 of his career-high 123 receiving yards.

In the video, Heaps shares the rub concept that helped Lockett get free for his score, then explains why Metcalf showed strong route running in his TD.

The 7-2 Seahawks will be back in action Monday on the road against the undefeated San Francisco 49ers, a game that will air on 710 ESPN Seattle and KIRO Radio 97.3 FM.
