Bump’s Breakdown: How Seahawks kept offense rolling with Lock at QB

Oct 7, 2023, 12:00 PM | Updated: 12:03 pm

The Seattle Seahawks dominated the New York Giants en route to a 24-3 win on Monday, but the offense was notable for a few reasons.

Bumpus: Where Seattle Seahawks have become a more disciplined defense

One reason was that for the first time since taking over as the starter last year, Geno Smith was sidelined. He suffered a knee injury while going out of bounds and missed some time in the second quarter.

With Smith out, Drew Lock got his first regular season snaps at quarterback for the Seahawks.

So how was Lock able to come in and continue to keep the offense rolling? And what impact did running back Kenneth Walker III and tight end Noah Fant have on the win?

Former NFL receiver Michael Bumpus dove into the film during his latest Seahawks Breakdown video. Watch the video in the player at the top of this story or at this link. And don’t forget to catch Bump every weekday on Bump and Stacy from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Seattle Sports.
