The Seattle Seahawks struggled to hold those Saints on Week 3, even with No Drew Brees.
The Seahawks fell to 2-1 after the defeat, which was worse than the final score indicated, following a last-second touchdown from Russell Wilson to Will Dissly.
While the secondary had issues, and the defensive line struggled to generate pressure, at least Seattle could rely on their linebacker trio of Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright, and Mychal Kendricks to make plays.
Wagner had one of the most effective games of his career – at least from a tackling perspective. Bobby’s energy and passion for the games in amazing.
Bobby’s recorded 18 combined tackles against the Saints, setting a career-high and coming one away from tying the Seahawks record, which was set by Kam Chancellor
Alongside Wright, who had 13 combined tackles and one pass defended, the Seahawks dynamic duo was able to help keep Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas and New Orleans’ offense at bay – at least as best they could considering Seattle’s defensive struggles elsewhere on the gridiron.
Wagner, Wright and the rest of the Seahawks will look to get back into the win column on Sunday, Sep. 28 against the Cardinals in Arizona.
