The Seattle Seahawks have two potential top 10 receivers setting records on the final day of the regular season
On Sunday, they both entered Seattle’s history books.
During the second quarter, Lockett hauled in a pair of five-yard routes from Wilson to surpass 1,000 yards on the year. Several plays later, Metcalf hauled in a pass, thus putting him over Steve Largent’s single-season franchise receiving yard record set in 1985.
Largent finished with 1,287 receiving yards during the historic season.
But wait, we’re not done just yet. On the same drive, Lockett hauled in his 95th reception of the season, surpassing the single-season record previously held by Doug Baldwin and Bobby Engram.
Talk about a moment for the duo right?
Metcalf and Lockett can help carry the Seahawks
Who’s enjoying a breakout year like Metcalf? After falling to the 64th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, he’s on a tear, showing teams why they should regret passing on him.
Metcalf now has tallied 1,291 receiving yards on 82 receptions. His vertical presence is uncanny and the speed to which he moves is impressive as well. Lockett’s 95 catches also is a career-best for him, previously set at 82 last season.
Throw in a dangerous running game a first-half Russell Wilson, Seattle might be in business this postseason. The only problem is can that success in the first half travel over to the second? Recently, Wilson has shown weakness trying to connect with targets and closing out games.
Time will tell what the future holds for Seattle, but right now the 12th Man has a dynamic duo to guide them deep into the NFC playoffs.
