The Seahawks were back in Seattle this week with Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coming to their house.
Arians wasn’t shy when discussing his feelings for Seattle earlier this week.
“I’m trying to win every damn game we play, so I don't give a [care] about next year,” Arians said. “I don't give a [care] about trades; I want to beat Seattle."
Arians has been an adversary of the Seahawks for years. In case you missed it… he once called CenturyLink, home of the Seattle Seahawks, his house.
“He’s pretty proud of it, what he’s done here, so I wouldn’t mind him having to go home, fly across the country without a win this weekend,” Carroll said earlier this week. “So we’re gonna do the best we can to get that done.”
It was a hard-fought battle between both teams from the start. The Seahawks trailed by eight at halftime, but if there’s anything we’ve learned about Russell Wilson and his sorcery, it’s that it’s not over until it’s over. He connected with Tyler Lockett, Jacob Hollister and DK Metcalf to lift the Seahawks over the Bucs 40-34 in an overtime thriller.
Let’s take a look at how fans and media reacted to the Seahawks victory.
In the first quarter, Wilson heaved a 19-yard pass into the end zone to his main main, Tyler Lockett, for the touchdown.

The choreographed celebration that ensued moments later was everything we didn’t know we needed and more.
The Seahawks wide receivers have the best celebrations don’t @ me— Jack Crossman (@thejackcrossman) November 3, 2019
Before halftime, Wilson hit tight end Jacob Hollister for his first-career touchdown. Let’s take a look at that special moment again…

Trailing 21-13 at halftime, Wilson came out on a mission. He found Lockett in the end zone for a second touchdown. QB1 struck again moments later, finding DK Metcalf for the 2-point conversion.
Why is Tyler Lockett never talked about as one of the 10 best receivers in football? An argument can be made. Really underrated.— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) November 3, 2019
Metcalf SZN wasn't over yet. Wilson once again found the speedy wideout in the fourth quarter for a 53-yard TD. Fans at CenturyLink Field lost it.
The Bucs tied it up 34-all to force OT, but a game-winning touchdown from Hollister would seal the deal.
Next up, the Seahawks head to the Bay to take on division rivals, the San Francisco 49ers, for Monday Night Football on 11/11.
