DK Metcalf turns on the jets vs. 49ers, strikes twice in first half


DK Metcalf is not of this world.

In the first quarter of the Seattle Seahawks-San Francisco 49ers Week 8 game, the second-year wide receiver caught the Niners defense sleeping. He took the crossing route, zoomed past four defenders and then turned on the jets en route to his first score of the game.

It was like the Budda Baker chase down all over again, but this time, Baker wasn’t present.

DK is out here playing Madden and NFL Twitter is here for it.

The Seahawks took a 6-0 lead heading into the second quarter, but the 49ers quickly fired back when Jamycal Hasty's 1-yard run and a PAT gave San Francisco the 7-6 edge. 

DK wasn't having it. 

Wilson found Metcalf again from two yards out to give Seattle the 13-7 lead once again. 

He now has six catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns, and it isn't even halftime yet. The 49ers have a problem and his name is DK Metcalf.
