Good morning, 12s. Here’s a look at what’s out there today — Tuesday, September 13 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
On Monday Night Football live from Lumen Field, the Seahawks silenced many doubters on the way to a 17-16 defeat of the Denver Broncos. Seattle spoiled former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s debut in a new jersey with big plays coming at all three phases of the game.
In his first start in eight years, Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith was the star of the night – going 23-28 through the air with 195 passing yards and 2 touchdowns. Smith didn’t turn the ball over, displaying excellent pocket presence while adding 14 rushing yards on the ground.

Smith did his part to help secure the win, spreading the ball around to eight different targets, with tight ends Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson each scoring a touchdown. This comes as the first career touchdown for the new-and-improved Parkinson, who used the summer for a physical and mental overhaul.
Despite the absence of rookie running back Kenneth Walker III due to a hernia procedure, the Seahawks accounted for 76 yards on the ground, led by running back Rashaad Penny. The 2018 first-round selection rushed for 60 yards on 12 carries (5.0 yards per carry). While running back Deejay Dallas didn’t get a carry Monday, he came up big on special teams. The former University of Miami back returned three kicks for 77 yards (25.7 per return) and made a huge tackle on the opening kickoff of the second half.

Dallas’ former Hurricanes backfield running mate Travis Homer had one carry, but came up with a big special teams tackle of his own.
When the doubt was at its highest from outside the building, the Seahawks and 12s dug deep at Lumen Field to pull out a big win to kick off the season.
