The Seattle Seahawks failed to pull out a win in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. They lost 27-24 in a close game.
Losses are never good, and no team likes to lose, but there were several standouts for Seattle. In particular two newer Seahawks stepped up and made plays for their team along with an old veteran who’s been so reliable over the years.
Let’s take a look at the three players who were tops for the Seahawks in the Week 1 defeat.
While this isn’t necessarily anything new, in fact it’s expected, Thomas still played fantastic in his first game back from a summer long holdout. He came up with the first of his team’s three interceptions, making a big play early on in the game.
Thomas is still the X-factor that Seahawks fans fell in love with years ago. He proved that on Sunday. There was speculation that Thomas’ extended holdout would create a rift between him, the fans, and his teammates. After Sunday, I don’t think that will be a problem, especially if Thomas keeps playing like that all year.
On top of his early interception, Thomas added five total tackles and two passes defensed. Thomas was a Second Team All-Pro in 2017 and is widely considered the most accomplished safety currently in the NFL. He’s looking to add more accolades to his trophy shelf this season.
