Did the hopes for the Seahawks 2023 season hang on the result of a coin flip? If Geno Smith doesn't get the ball in overtime with a chance at redemption, then our postgame commentary about our quarterback would have been much more critical. Ken Walker and Tyler Lockett each scored two touchdowns, including the game winner by Lockett. Tyler explained why he decided to go against one of the team's primary coaching points and, of course, Coach Carroll took no issue with it.
The Carolina Panthers come into town with the first pick overall leading the team at quarterback. Just like the Seahawks, the Panthers are playing without two of their starting offensive lineman. Dre'mont Jones could be due for a big game in the interior of the defensive line. The Seahawks may also need him to help stop a rushing attack led by Miles Sanders. Could the defense get a boost with a possible return of Jamal Adams?
Despite allowing the Rams to take some momentum into Week 2 of the season, the 49ers were able to pull ahead in the fourth quarter to take the top spot in the division for now. The Cardinals are hanging in games, even if they're giving up huge leads to the likes of Daniel Jones. Do better call outs go to the votes of the air player of the week and some bad officiating. Better at Life honors go to Nick Chubb and a Colts player who scored his first NFL touchdown.
