Shocking stat reveals Russell Wilson, Seahawks collapse vs. Titans is historic

Seahawks, Russell Wilson, Titans

Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks’ Week 2 collapse against the Tennessee Titans is pretty historic. In fact, it’s one that home fans haven’t seen since 2004.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, it was only the second time that the Seahawks have lost at Lumen Field despite leading by at least 14 points in the fourth quarter. Since it opened in 2002, such occurrence happened just once back 2004 against the Rams. Throughout that span, they were 58-1 and 5-1 including the playoffs.

The Seahawks were ahead by 15 at the half, 24-9. While the Titans managed to cut it to just eight in the third, a Russell Wilson 68-yard touchdown pass to Freddie Swain early in the fourth quarter allowed Seattle to maintain their lead.

However, it turned out to be the only points the Seahawks would be able to score in the half, as they struggled offensive with Tyler Lockett being contained. Of course the injuries to Brandon Shell and DK Metcalf didn’t help, but Seattle simply failed to get things going on offense as the Titans’ defense was locked in.

Head coach Pete Carroll took the blame after the loss, noting that they “weren’t as clean” as they needed to be. Luckily for them, though, they are 1-1 on the season after getting the season off with a bang with a 28016 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in  Week 1.

The Seahawks have a chance to bounce back in Week 3 when they face a Minnesota Vikings team that is still winless (0-2) this 2021 season.
