Without much of a ground game, Seattle's offense has faced quite a few third-and-long situations this season. That makes things tough when the pass protection isn't great and you are already playing without your MVP running back and starting tight end, as the Seahawks have been in recent weeks. Remember when the Seahawks could check to running plays and gash people on third-and-intermediate? Well, they have converted one of seven chances when running the ball on third-and-4 through third-and-6 (even though they are 3-of-3 on third-and-7/8). The full breakdown is below.
Note: Officials gave Seneca Wallace credit for a 1-yard run against the Vikings on a third-down play in which holding was called against Seattle. The play counted, but it remained third down. They apparently did not count this as a failed third-down play in the official stats. I had to make this adjustment manually in order for my third-down stats to match the official ones.
