Heaps: Seahawks had 3 big missed opportunities on offense
Dec 11, 2019, 10:11 AM | Updated: 10:12 am
The Seahawks scored a season-low 12 points Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams in a 28-12 loss.
Seattle’s offense failed to score a touchdown for the first time this season, but the Seahawks had opportunities to continue drives and score points.
Jake Heaps of 710 ESPN Seattle’s Tom, Jake and Stacy highlights three plays where the Seahawks’ offense could have gained some momentum.
The first play was a fourth-and-one play in the first quarter where wide receiver Malik Turner dropped a pass. Heaps shows that the play call was a good one and quarterback Russell Wilson threw a good ball, but Turner turned his head upfield before securing the ball.
The second play was also a drop, this time by tight end Jacob Hollister on third-and-seven. Again, the play design worked, but Hollister didn’t put himself in the best position to finish the play and continue the drive.
The third and final play was in the fourth quarter when the Seahawks were trying to make a final push to get back in the game. Turner was again the target, this time on a late post in the seam, but he didn’t turn his head at the right time for what would have been a touchdown.
