SEATTLE - The Seattle Seahawks were 2-0 heading into Sunday’s meeting with the Drew Brees-less New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field.

It seemed like the perfect stage for Seattle to start the season 3-0 for the first time since 2013, but the Seahawks were plagued by penalties and missed tackles that led them to a 21-7 deficit before halftime.

A huge fumble recovery from rookie linebacker Cody Barton and a two-yard TD for quarterback Russell Wilson seemingly turned the tides with 11:55 left on the clock.

But the Seahawks had dug themselves a hole too deep to escape and fell to the Saints 33-27 for their first loss of the 2019 season. 

Here’s a look at how fans and media on social media reacted to the Seahawks loss to the Saints. 

Wilson first connected with his main man, Tyler Lockett, who found his way into the end zone for Seattle’s first 6 points of the night. 

In the third quarter, rookie linebacker Cody Barton came up with a clutch recovery off a muffed punt. Fans celebrated the play as a major shift in the game.

Russell Wilson got hot in the fourth quarter, running the ball in not once, but twice because well, he’s Russell Wilson. Social media lost it.
