Seahawks move to 4-0
A quarter of the way through the NFL season, Seattle is looking like one of the league's best teams.
Russell Wilson had another great day, Chris Carson scored two touchdowns and the Seahawks beat Miami 31-23 Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
The Seahawks are 4-0 and sitting atop the competitive NFC West Division. They have scored at least 31 points in each game.
Seattle plays Minnesota at 5:20 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11 (NBC).
The last time the Seahawks started 4-0 was 2013, a season that ended with the organization's only Super Bowl win.
Wilson has been on fire to start the season. He went 24 of 34 for 360 yards and two scores against the Dolphins (1-3). He did throw an interception, but his stats through four games put him in the MVP discussion: 75.2% completion rate, 321.3 yards per game, 16 touchdown passes, two interceptions.
Carson had 80 yards and two TDs on 16 carries.
DK Metcalf continued his rise to star receiver status, hauling in four passes for 106 yards. David Moore, who had a 57-yard reception to set up a first-half TD, and Travis Homer had TD receptions.
Ryan Fitzpatrick went 29 of 45 for 315 yards for the Dolphins. The Seahawks intercepted him twice.
Moore's 17-yard TD reception and Carson's short TD run put Seattle up 31-15 in the fourth quarter. Fitzpatrick scampered for a score and the two-point conversion made it a one-possession game, but the Seahawks recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock.
The game was played with fans in the stands, including many wearing Seahawks jerseys. Announced attendance was 12,369.
