DETROIT (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks celebrated a touchdown by acting out a baseball game in the end zone. Later Zach Zenner Jersey White , their punter ran for a first down when he was supposed to take a safety.Fair to say they’re playing with confidence again.Russell Wilson finished with a perfect passer rating, throwing three touchdown passes in Seattle’s 28-14 over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Seahawks and Lions came into the game with .500 records, but this matchup didn’t 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.“We’re having fun, we’re in our groove and it feels good,” linebacker K.J. Wright said. “It’s 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 Womens Matt Prater Jersey , and David Moore served as the umpire.“World Series, so we had to try to do something,” Moore said.The Lions (3-4) weren’t 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 we’re trying to do anything we can to get the ball and get after it,” 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 Seattle’s victory:GROUNDEDDetroit’s 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 Womens Kerry Hyder Jersey ,” coach Pete Carroll said. “Not just that, Russell’s 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 Seattle’s 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 he’s made, not just for us as individuals, as a team, but also as a city. There’s 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.Lions DL Da’Shawn Hand is a bright spot on a dreary Detroit defense The selection of Da’Shawn Hand in the fourth round of 2018 was met with very little fanfare. The Detroit Lions had signed on Bo Davis to be their defensive line coach, so it was pretty much a given that they were going to be paying close attention to the various defenders coming out of Alabama’s program, but Hand was mostly an afterthought. The once highly touted high school prospect had a quiet college career Womens Ricky Jean Francois Jersey , but the team thought highly enough of him to sacrifice a third-round pick in 2019 to trade back into the fourth round to select him this year. His impact was expected to be as a rotational player, but after a strong camp and preseason, he came out swinging as one of the only bright spots during the team’s disastrous opener.Hand was the No. 1 prospect in his recruiting class, above all of the quarterbacks and other players, and landing on the Alabama defense was seen to be a case of the rich getting richer. His college career was mostly forgettable, however, playing second fiddle to guys like A’Shawn Robinson, Jarron Reed, and Da’Ron Payne—all three of which would be drafted in the first two rounds of the draft. A mid-round pick himself, Hand was expected to back up his former teammate in Robinson, along with free agent signees Ricky Jean Francois and Sylvester Williams.During the preseason, Hand was one of the only standouts on defense. Like his time at Alabama Anthony Zettel Jersey White , he didn’t emerge as a pass rusher but his run defense was often stellar and some—including yours truly—projected him as a starter sooner than later. At the time, that was more due to the weakness of the front seven as a whole than it was Hand himself, but his performance in the opener against the Jets suggests we may have been underselling him.If Hand can maintain performances like that, there’s a strong possibility he steps right into the role vacated by newly benched, former starter A’Shawn Robinson. Playing at a high level on a poor defensive line is tough, but doing so as a rookie that wasn’t considered anything more than a rotational piece is nothing short of extraordinary. The concern with Hand was that “if Bo Davis couldn’t get his enormous potential out of him at Alabama, then why should we expect him to here?” As it turns out, we shouldn’t have expected it. But it looks like it’s still happening anyway. Here’s to hoping it continues.
