Seahawks Lose RB Chris Carson With Fracture In Left Leg

Seattle had 337 yards of offense in the second half. Here are three reasons the Seahawks won.

Seattle was down 15-10 at home in the third quarter to the Indianapolis Colts, a two-touchdown underdog. Seattle made their own bad luck in the first half. A vital 33-yard completion to the previously invisible Jimmy Graham had brought them into Colts' territory, and they stood second-and-13 at the 30 after a sack. Making his third start since being acquired by the Colts, Brissett was 16 of 29 passing for 157 yards.

Wilson seemingly intentionally remains poised and under control nearly every minute of his life. Indianapolis had 205 yards of offense and two badly timed defensive holding penalties by the Seahawks kept the 80-yard drive alive. I love it when he lets his emotions spill over. Wilson was 21-of-26 for 295 yards.

Richard Sherman believes that some fans dehumanize NFL players because of fantasy football, saying players "don't care about your fantasy team". Lacy, playing for the first time since Week 1, led Seattle with 52 yards on 11 carries. McKissic said one comment from Wilson got his attention.

McKissic's one catch was highlight-reel stuff, coming in between two Colts defenders.

DETERMINED RUSS: It was a different Russell Wilson in the second half. And he ran the ball four times for 38 yards and another score. That's pretty much maximum production. He needed to be carted off and have his leg placed in an air cast after being stood up by defenders and driven backwards.

The score was 3-2 until Colts Rookie QB Jacoby Brissett threw a pick, which was a run back for a touchdown.

- DE Cliff Avril also left in the first half with a neck injury.

The status of those players is a concern, but the Seahawks and Wilson proved prime-time was the right time to come out of their shell and put on a second-half show.

ABOUT THE SEAHAWKS (1-2): Seattle's defense had long prided itself on not allowing a 100-yard rusher, but it has allowed one in back-to-back weeks and was gashed for 195 yards on the ground by DeMarco Murray and the Titans. The Seahawks' usually reserved, nearly senatorial franchise quarterback opened up to wowed teammates by standing up and speaking out with genuine emotion and vulnerability in a team meeting in Nashville.

From there, however, Seattle flipped a switch and just dominated.
