- The Seahawks have run 49 and 47 offensive plays to open the year. Since the start of 2021, they have hit 60 offensive plays in a game just four times. The next closest team has times.
- Seattle has 180 fewer rushing yards than their opponent through two weeks, the worst differential in the league.
- Zero of the 18 possessions against Seattle have gone without a first down or touchdown, the only team in the league through two weeks to not hold an opponent to a three-and-out drive.
- The Seahawks have allowed 50.9 yards per possession, the most in the league through two weeks.
- Opponents are averaging 7.7 yards after the catch against Seattle, the most in the league.
Marcus Mariota: After a QB9 (19.8) scoring week in the opener, Mariota was the QB19 (13.4 points).
Opening with two tougher matchups against the Saints and Rams, Mariota gets a favorable outlook against a Seattle defense that has allowed a 66.7% completion rate (20th) and 7.9 yards per pass attempt (27th) to open the season.
A road quarterback with a 20-point implied team total is far from sexy, but Mariota is one of the best streamers of the weekend. I would be willing to put Mariota in over someone such as Tom Brady if holding the Hall of Famer for when the Bucs are healthier.
