Jordyn Brooks ‘Trending Up’ After Impressive Week 16 Performance


NBC #Sports’ #Peter #King #Praises #Russell #Wilson, #Jamal #Adams #After #Week 16

#Russell #Wilson and #Jamal #Adams made critical plays in #Sunday’s division-clinching win, and the national media recognized it. #Wilson finished the game with two touchdowns (one passing, one rushing) and 225 passing yards. #Adams had eight tackles, including one that saved a touchdown that would’ve tied the game at 13.

NBC #Sports’ #Peter #King singled out the #Seahawks’ stars in his weekly “Football #Morning #In #America” column.

#First, #King pointed out just how impressive #Wilson’s first nine seasons have been with these five notes:

“#Nine seasons, eight playoff appearances, four division titles, two NFC championships, one #Super #Bowl title.

“#Top six QBs in the 2012 draft, with overall draft position: 1) #Andrew #Luck, 2) #Robert #Griffin III, 8) #Ryan #Tannehill, 22) #Brandon #Weeden, 57) #Brock #Osweiler, 75) #Russell #Wilson.

“#No quarterback in NFL history has been sacked more in his first nine seasons than #Wilson (392). #Yet …

“#With #Wilson taking all that punishment, #Seattle has played 158 games (143 regular-season, 15 postseason), and #Wilson has started all 158.

“#Top career ratings of QBs drafted between 1995 and 2015: #Aaron #Rodgers 103.5, #Wilson 101.8, #Drew #Brees 98.6, #Tom #Brady 97.2.”

#King also listed #Adams as one of his defensive players of the week after another strong performance:

“#With #Seattle nursing a 13-6 lead midway through the third quarter, #Adams made the kind of play #Ray #Lewis used to make. #Starting from outside the right defensive end spot, #Adams rushed the #Rams backfield as #Darrell #Henderson sprinted around his own right end. #In pursuit, #Adams kept making up ground, and as #Brown churned for the end zone, #Adams dove and hit him in both lower legs. #Brown went down at the 2, and #Seattle stoned LA four times from there to prevent the #Rams from getting any points. #This is the kind of presence #Adams provides. #He’s rangy and violent, and his eight tackles helped hold the #Rams without a touchdown. #Sick of losing in #New #York, #Adams got dealt to #Seattle this fall and finally won a division.”
