The grades are in from the Seattle Seahawks Week 12 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Here’s a look at who got top marks from Pro Football Focus. Outside of a few dismal pass blocking grades, things were pretty positive across the board.
Best offensive grades
WR David Moore – 84.2
Moore caught one of his two targets for 31 yards and had one rush for four yards.
QB Russell Wilson – 83.6
Wilson played better than his numbers suggest (200 yards, one touchdown and one interception). He missed a wide-open Jacob Hollister for what would have been a 6-yard touchdown, but his receivers let him down with a few costly drops. DK Metcalf dropped what would have been a long score in the second half to help put the game out of reach.
WR Malik Turner – 79.4
Turner caught a 33-yard touchdown on a trick play. It was a fantastic over-the-shoulder grab and marked his first-career score. Turner has made the most of his opportunities in 2019 by catching 10-of-13 targets for 186 yards and one touchdown.
RT Duane Brown – 71.6
Brown was one of the lone bright spots on the offensive line. More on that in a second.
RB Rashaad Penny – 70.2
Penny ran the ball 14 times for 129 yards, including a 58-yard touchdown run that ended up being the game-winning score. Pete Carroll has indicated that he’s starting to earn more of a role within the Seahawks offense. He’s said that before, though, so we’ll see if it actually ends up happening.
Worst offensive grades
C Joey Hunt – 33.0
Hunt was given a pass blocking grade of just 7.7.
T/TE George Fant – 36.8
Fant was given a 34.3 pass blocking grade.
RG D.J. Fluker – 38.3
Fluker allowed three pressures and one sack. He was given a 17.9 pass blocking grade.
WR D.K. Metcalf – 49.8
Metcalf caught 3-of-6 targets for 35 yards but had two costly drops.
Best defensive grades
FS Quandre Diggs – 88.4
Diggs was all over the field and has proven to be a huge difference maker in Seattle’s defense. He recovered a fumble against Philadelphia and was given an 89.1 coverage grade.
DE Ziggy Ansah – 86.0
Ansah, seemingly out of nowhere, broke out with 1.5 sacks and had another taken away due to penalty. He clearly took advantage of the bye week to continue to add weight and strength. Carroll sounded optimistic that Ansah might finally be turning the corner after a miserably slow start.
DL Rasheem Green – 84.5
Green had a sack and a forced fumble that resulted in one of Seattle’s five takeaways. It was maybe his most active game of the season, and the Seahawks needed him to step up with Jadeveon Clowney out.
DL Quinton Jefferson – 79.8
Jefferson didn’t have a tackle but he recovered a fumble and was given a run defense grade of 72.8 and a pass rush grade of 71.2
LB Mychal Kendricks – 79.1
Kendricks had a game-high 11 solo tackles and was given a run defense grade of 85.6. He was all over the place against his former team.
SS Bradley McDougald – 75.4
McDougald intercepted Carson Wentz and had six solo tackles. He was given a coverage grade of 78.5
CB Tre Flowers – 72.6
Flowers also intercepted Wentz and was given a coverage grade of 75.6.
DE Shaquem Griffin – 71.7
Griffin had two quarterback hits and nearly had his first-career sack on both occasions. His speed and motor have been evident over Seattle’s last two games as Griffin has carved out a role for himself.
Worst defensive grades
DE Branden Jackson – 42.5
Jackson had a costly offsides penalty, but he did have one pass defended.
DT Poona Ford – 44.7
Ford had one tackle for loss and one quarterback hit. He was dinged for a run defense grade of just 36.1.
DL L.J. Collier – 48.9
The team’s 2019 first-round pick played 26 snaps but failed to record a tackle.
