There are several Seahawks players who received standout marks following Seattle’s 27-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4. Pro Football Focus’ grades shouldn’t be taken as gospel, but they provide a good snapshot at how specific players are faring.
Here’s a look at PFF’s best and worst grades from Seattle’s decisive win on Sunday.
Best offensive grades
TE Luke Wilson – 81.4
Wilson played just 15 snaps but he made a noticeable impact, catching a 17-yard pass to convert 3rd-and-2 on Seattle’s game-sealing touchdown drive.
RB Chris Carson – 75.1
Carson, unsurprisingly, received top marks from PFF. He notched his seventh-career 100-yard game and added 41 receiving yards. Carson ran hard all day and seemed to break double digit tackles on the day.
WR Jaron Brown – 74.9
Brown had his most productive day of 2019, catching all three of his targets for 50 yards.
Worst offensive grades
RT Germain Ifedi – 44.6
Ifedi, at least as far as PFF is concerned, continues to be the weak link on Seattle’s offensive line.
WR David Moore – 49.4
Moore had just one catch for nine yards and picked up a costly offensive pass interference penalty in the second half.
WR D.K. Metcalf – 52.7
Metcalf continues to struggle with efficiency, catching just 1-of-4 targets for six yards. Moore’s increased playing time ate into Metcalf’s workload. Metcalf has caught less than half of his targets this season (10-of-23).
Best defensive grades
DE Jadeveon Clowney – 92.2
Clowney’s day was highlighted by his one-handed, 27-yard pick-six, but he was a menace throughout. Clowney earned a coverage grade of 80.3 and a pass rush grade of 73.3.
CB Shaquill Griffin – 86.8
Griffin was credited with seven tackles and one pass defended. He was given an 87.9 coverage grade. His 82.9 coverage grade for the season is seventh-best of any NFL corner.
DT Poona Ford – 79.8
Ford had two tackles and earned an 87.0 run defense grade.
Worst defensive grades
DE Rasheem Green – 36.2
Green had a huge sack against Kyler Murray, but PFF dinged him for his tackling, giving him just a 24.4 grade in that area.
LB Bobby Wagner – 45.7
A 35.4 coverage grade is what hurt Wagner’s overall mark. He was beat a few times by David Johnson in the passing game. Wagner did post a standout 82.7 tackling grade.
Bradley McDougald – 52.8
Like Wagner, McDougald posted an 85.1 tackling grade but had a subpar 49.8 coverage grade.
