Published on October 4, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Seneca scrambling out of the pocketSeattle (1-3) played without quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and left tackle Walter Jones, who are both hurt, and lost its third straight.

Manning made this one look easy. He finished 31 of 41 for 353 yards, marking the first time he’s had four straight 300-yard games in his NFL career. The second TD pass, a 21-yarder to Austin Collie with 3 seconds left in the first half, moved him into a tie with Fran Tarkenton for third on the NFL’s career list.

The Colts also had scoring runs from Joseph Addai and Donald Brown, and Adam Vinatieri kicked two field goals.

Seattle’s touchdowns came in the final three minutes. Seneca Wallace scored on a 7-yard run with 2:59 to go, and Wallace threw a 1-yard TD pass to Owen Schmitt with 19 seconds left.

Seattle rushed for only 49 yards. Wallace was 33 of 45 for 257 yards, lost a fumble and was sacked five times, including once by Dwight Freeney who played with a strained right quadriceps.

Game ball

The Colts offense grabs all of the headlines, but DE Robert Mathis had a monster game leading the defense. Mathis had three sacks and forced two tumbles as the Seahawks’ offense was quiet for most of the afternoon.

Key Stat
