It was the beginning of my last week at The Bellingham Herald and I had the chance to capture photos of the Seattle Seahawks v. the New York Giants. It was an amazing experience to say the least. I had the opportunity to talk with Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin for a few minutes and captured well over 3,000 photos of the Seahawks Seattle’s 38-17 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday, the third straight win for the Seahawks where the defending champs showed glimpses of that title form.
Lynch was the workhorse for a record day for the Seahawks offense. He ran for 140 yards and a career-high four touchdowns on runs of 1, 2, 3 and 16 yards. Seattle set a franchise record with 350 yards rushing, the most in the NFL since Kansas City ran for 352 against Indianapolis in 2012.
Lynch wasn’t alone. Wilson added 107 yards on 14 carries and a 1-yard TD run with 5:19 left. Christine Michael and Robert Turbin averaged more than 5 yards per carry: Michael finished with 71 yards and Turbin added 32.
Seattle is the first NFL team to have a running back rush for four touchdowns and a quarterback run for at least 100 yards in the same game.
Anyways it was an amazing experience and it was something I have always wanted to do since I was a kid (still waiting for the Seattle Sonics to come back, so I can capture photos of one of those games). Below are a few of my favorite photos from the game. I will be posting more photos of the players from before and during the game in the coming weeks.
