Matt Hasselbeck’s interception looked like a bad decision, and his 77.6 passer rating generally isn’t enough to win games.
Justin Forsett got 17 of the 21 carries and averaged 3.7. There just wasn’t much space for him.
The Deion Branch fumble out of the end zone cost them a touchdown, and the per-catch average of 11.6 is nothing remarkable.
Offensive line: C
Hasselbeck was sacked three times (although coverage played a role, too). But on the sack for a safety, guard Ben Hamilton let a blitzer come through free.
Defensive line: A
That might be a little high, but they got four sacks and Red Bryant recovered two fumbles. Nice effort.
Curry was doing a nice job jamming Gates, but when Curry went out, Gates started getting open.
Rivers threw for 455 yards, but Earl Thomas’ two interceptions and some nice plays in the Red Zone saved the Hawks.
Special teams: A
Leon Washington’s two kickoff return scores made the difference in the game.
The time management at the end of the first half looked like a major blunder. But, this team came up with big plays and played hard for 60 minutes.
