The Seahawks offense has been an absolute juggernaut through three games, averaging 37 points per contest while racking up eye-popping statistics. Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf are playing like superheroes.
All three are on pace to absolutely shatter franchise records this season. Below is a look at each guy’s numbers through three games as well as their 16-game pace. It’s hard to imagine the talented trio keeping up this video game-like production, but it’s still fun to look at what things would look like if they did.
2020: 925 passing yards, 14 touchdowns and 1 interception
Pace: 4,933 passing yards, 75 touchdowns and 5 interceptions
Franchise records: 4219 yards (Wilson in ’16) and 35 (Wilson in ’18)
Not only is Wilson on pace to break his own franchise record for single season touchdown passes in just eight games, but he’d also obliterate Peyton Manning’s NFL record with 55 passing scores. The Seahawks defense has been such a liability through three games that the offense has been forced to win shootouts. Given all of the injuries on defense, Jamal Adams now among them, that might not be changing anytime soon.
2020: 24 receptions for 259 yards and 4 touchdowns
Pace: 128 receptions for 1,381 yards and 21 touchdowns
Franchise records: 94 receptions (Doug Baldwin in ’16 and Bobby Engram in ’07), 1,287 yards (Steve Largent in ’85), 14 touchdown (Baldwin in ’15)
Lockett is destined to become the first player in franchise history to catch 100 passes in a season. All three of his projected totals would set new Seahawks records. What’s wild is that should everyone stay on their current pace, he wouldn’t even own all three marks. That’s because…
2020: 12 receptions for 297 yards and 3 touchdowns
Pace: 64 receptions for 1,584 yards and 16 touchdowns
… Metcalf is tracking towards the single-season receiving yards record. What’s crazier than the yardage total is that he’s projected to do so on just 64 catches. Metcalf is currently averaging a ridiculous 24.75 yards per reception. The combination of Metcalf’s big-play ability and Lockett’s efficiency underneath makes them nearly unstoppable as a tandem.
