Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and wide receiver Tyler Lockett are quickly becoming the duo to watch in the NFL this season.
Against the Buccaneers Week 9, Wilson and Lockett combined for two touchdowns and a magical performance on the field. Wilson threw for 378 yards and five scores on Sunday and Lockett finished the day as Seattle’s leading receiver with 13 receptions on 18 targets for 152 yards and the two TDs.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll isn’t taking the pair for granted.
Defense almost blew the game for the Seahawks. Then, kicker, Jason Myers couldn’t win it. But Seattle’s offense saved the day, in big-time style.
Regardless of how the Seattle Seahawk won, they won — continuing one of the best seasons starts in franchise history in the process.
The Seattle Seahawks overcame a 14-point deficit en route to a dramatic 40-34 overtime win in a shootout with the pass-happy Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday at CenturyLink Field.
“You can’t win the game in the first three quarters. Today, you couldn’t win in the fourth quarter,” receiver Tyler Lockett said. “But we won the game in overtime, and we did whatever we had to do to be able to pull it out.”
Evans recorded his third game this season of 180 or more receiving yards in Tampa Bay’s 40-34 overtime loss Sunday to the Seahawks. And the Bucs have lost all three of those games, all by six points or less.
Evans had a season-high 12 catches on 16 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns Sunday. He had 11 catches for 198 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-23 loss Oct. 27 at Tennessee.
While Seattle’s defense struggled, its offense did not — and ultimately won it the game. Quarterback Russell Wilson bolstered his MVP candidacy. Lockett and D.K. Metcalf played as well as you’ll ever see any receiver tandem play. And Jacob Hollister, who wasn’t on the Seahawks’ active roster just a few weeks ago, answered the bell at tight end.
And maybe we don’t talk about the dramatic comeback at all if not for an enormous run by tailback Chris Carson.

The Seattle Seahawks (7-2) have now started a season 7-2 or better for the fifth time in franchise history, the last time being in 2013.
“I can’t even explain or describe it or whatever, other than to just kind of marvel and watch it and have fun watching these guys play the game,” Carroll said in his postgame press conference. “They are extraordinary players. And we’re so lucky that they have kind of grown-up together. The benefit of all that time. The marvelous connection that they have is as good as you can get. It’s just a joy to watch them play and practice and work, and just hope we can have another good game next week.”
After his Week 9 outing, Wilson remains firmly in the race for this season’s Most Valuable Player and Lockett is sneaking up on a team milestone, on pace to break the single-season franchise record for receptions and yards. For his efforts against Tampa Bay, Lockett was named Seahawks Wires’ Player of the Game.
