DK Metcalf becomes ninth player in Seahawks history with 1,000-yard season

DK Metcalf is a cheat code.

The Seattle Seahawks phenom is having his way with the Philadelphia Eagles under the lights on Monday Night Football. He has six catches for 101 yards, his fifth 100-yard game this season… and it’s only the second quarter.

It’s also Metcalf’s eighth game with 90+ yards this season.

Per ESPN Stats & Info, the second-year wideout is also the fastest Seahawks player to record 100 receiving yards in a game since Koren Robinson in 2008, which coincidentally happened also against the Eagles.

Perhaps Metcalf’s biggest play of the night so far came in the second quarter when Russell Wilson aired it out for 52 yards to Metcalf. The completion probability was just 20 percent.

In the third quarter, Metcalf surpassed the 1,000 receiving yard threshold, and he did so in just 11 games. During his rookie season, Metcalf had 58 catches, 900 yards and seven touchdowns. 

Per Seahawks PR, Metcalf became just the ninth player in Seahawks history to have a 1,000-yard season. 

Imagine if the Eagles took Metcalf over JJ Arcega-Whiteside. Philly will always wonder what could have been if they didn’t pass Metcalf up, but it's fun watching the 64th overall pick torture them nonetheless.
