(1090 The Fan) — The Seahawks recorded yet another exciting regular season, and we’ve listed a few of our favorite plays below. Vote for yours!
The crowd noise may not have registered an earthquake in Arizona, but this touchdown was still reminiscent of running back Marshawn Lynch’s 67-yard touchdown run from the 2011 Wild Card playoff game where he broke nine tackles. Against the Cardinals this year, Lynch broke tackles and dodged defenders for a phenomenal 79-yard touchdown run– the longest of his career.
Baldwin’s Blocked Punt
Wide receiver Doug Baldwin has made more than a few memorable catches, but one of our favorite Baldwin plays was an unexpected one– a blocked punt that led to a Seahawks’ special teams 25-yard touchdown from linebacker Mike Morgan.
Cooper Helfet’s Toe-Drag Reception
Cooper Helfet’s 19-yard touchdown reception against the St. Louis Rams in Week 7 of the 2014 regular season was a thing of beauty. The Seahawks couldn’t come away with a win, but Helfet’s catch was certainly highlight-reel worthy.
Russell Wilson’s Scramble and Pass To Tony Moeaki
On a third-and-nine against the San Francisco 49ers, quarterback Russell Wilson was quickly swarmed by defenders after the snap. Wilson dodged defensive back Dontae Johnson and scrambled left before darting to his right across the backfield to heave a pass to tight end Tony Moeaki. Moeaki bolted along the sideline and was finally brought down just short of the 49ers’ 1-yard line. This play not only highlighted Wilson’s elusiveness and quick-thinking, but also allowed Moeaki — who had been signed from free agency after tight end Zach Miller suffered an ankle injury– a chance to shine in primetime.
Richard Sherman’s Interceptions On Thanksgiving Day
The Wilson-to-Moeaki play wasn’t the only highlight of the Thanksgiving Day game. Cornerback Richard Sherman also had a day in Santa Clara, nabbing not one but two interceptions against 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Marshawn Lynch’s Four Touchdown Game
Marshawn Lynch went Beast Mode against the visiting New York Giants on November 9th, 2014. Lynch scored on runs of 1-, 2-, 3- and 16-yards and rushed for 140 yards total. The Seahawks won, 38-17.
Jon Ryan Fakes Field Goal
Against the Washington Redskins in a week 5 Monday Night Football game, Seahawks punter Jon Ryan and kicker Steven Hauschka went on for a field goal in the fourth quarter. Acting as the holder, Ryan received the snap and ran for a first down. Seattle went on to win 27-17.
