E-mail by acting out a baseball game in the end zone. Later Nazair Jones Color Rush Jersey , their punter ran for a first down when he was supposed to take a safety.Fair to say theyre playing with confidence again.Russell Wilson finished with a perfect passer rating, throwing three touchdown passes in Seattles 28-14 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Seahawks and Lions came into the game with .500 records, but this matchup didnt seem all that even. Seattle forced three turnovers , and after scoring three TDs in the second quarter, the Seahawks led comfortably the rest of the way.Were having fun, were in our groove and it feels good, linebacker K.J. Wright said. Its a perfect time, coming off the bye week, to just really take off. We have a home game next week and we just have to start stacking these wins on top of each other.After one second-quarter touchdown, the Seahawks (4-3) celebrated in the end zone with a baseball scene. Tyler Lockett was the pitcher and fellow receiver Doug Baldwin was the batter. The pitch was Lockett throwing the football toward Baldwin, and when Baldwin was hit by the ball, he ran at Lockett as if charging the mound.Two other receivers were involved: Jaron Brown acted as the catcher, and David Moore served as the umpire.World Series, so we had to try to do something, Moore said.The Lions (3-4) werent having nearly as much fun. Down 14 late in the fourth quarter, they allowed punter Michael Dickson to run for a first down. Dickson took the snap in his own end zone and was supposed to take a safety, but Detroit reacted so poorly that after drifting across the back of the end zone, Dickson figured he had a chance for a first down and took off running.Obviously, that part of the game were trying to do anything we can to get the ball and get after it 12th Fan Color Rush Jersey , Lions coach Matt Patricia said. They were trying to take the safety and play that play there, and we obviously let him out and let him run. He saw the space and he took it.Other items of note from Seattles victory:GROUNDEDDetroits rookie running back, Kerryon Johnson, was held to 22 yards on eight carries after running for a career-high 158 yards in his previous game against Miami.QUITE A LINEWilson was 14 of 17 for 248 yards and three touchdowns, for a perfect passer rating of 158.3.Beautiful game, coach Pete Carroll said. Not just that, Russells doing more than just that. We ran the ball for 170-something yards today. He found some opportunities to run it and fix some things for us and took advantage of the game plan. He did a great job.DEBUTDefensive tackle Damon Harrison played his first game for the Lions since being acquired in a trade from the New York Giants. He had seven tackles and a sack, but Detroit was outrushed 176-34.IN THEIR THOUGHTSThe Seahawks dedicated a game ball afterward to owner Paul Allen, who died Oct. 15. This was Seattles first game since then.He meant so much to us, all of us players, Wilson said. The culture that he was able to create that will forever live on here for the Seattle Seahawks and the impact that hes made, not just for us as individuals, as a team, but also as a city. Theres probably not too many people that have impacted the world more than he has.UP NEXTThe Seahawks host the Los Angeles Chargers next weekend, while Detroit plays at Minnesota. When second-year Seattle Seahawks WR David Moore essentially replaced Brandon Marshall in the depth chart, he made an instant impact on the passing offense.From Week 4 to Week 8, he caught 11 passes on 13 targets for 221 yards and four touchdowns, exceeding expectations despite a very impressive training camp and preseason. He came back down to earth a bit over his next three games, with just 7 receptions on 18 targets for 89 yards Tyler Lockett Color Rush Jersey , and an (admittedly unlucky) drop on a potential game-tying touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers, but a drop nevertheless.Moore bounced back with a terrific performance against the Carolina Panthers, with 4 catches for a career-high 103 yards and a critical game-tying touchdown on a 4th down long ball from Russell Wilson. Since then, though? Its been a really quiet spell. Over his last four games hes only had 12 targets, two catches and 16 yards. If theres any silver lining, both of his receptions were third-down conversions, including that big one against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, he did have a couple of potential touchdown opportunities against the Vikings and Chiefs and failed to keep himself in-bounds on either play. While the one against the Chiefs might have just been a great play by the defender, he absolutely couldve gotten both feet down against Minnesota.Hes certainly been struggling to generate separation, and without being too harsh, he probably couldve made better efforts to go after both of these balls against the San Francisco 49ers.Moores slump has led to Wilson having a sub-50% completion percentage (23/49) when throwing his way. The only other receiver on the team with a sub-50% catch rate is... Brandon Marshall, who caught just 11 of 23 targets before he was released midseason.But this isnt a bash David Moore post. I think his regression was inevitable. That hes contributed this much in his first real season of live game action is commendable, and youd hope he continues to improve down the line. Hes still tied for second among all Seahawks receivers in touchdowns, and if he can find his October-November form again in the playoffs, then opposing defenses will have to contend with him, Tyler Lockett, and Doug Baldwin.
