Research Notes

  • Russell Wilson and Drew Brees each attempted eight passes traveling 15 or more yards downfield Monday. Wilson bettered his 59% completion mark entering the game (best among qualified quarterbacks). Brees, however, didn't complete a deep pass for the second time since 2006.--Drew Brees had completed at least three passes traveling 15+ yards in every game this season.

  • - Two of Russell Wilson's touchdown passes on Monday came off of play action. Wilson has thrown 10 play-action touchdowns this season, tied for third-most in the league. Wilson's +9 TD-Int differential on play action is tied for second this season (Nick Foles +11).- The Seahawks' corners took away the outside of the field from Drew Brees. He completed 50% of his passes outside the painted numbers for 42 yards compared with completing 70% of his passes inside the painted numbers for 105 yards and his lone touchdown.- Jimmy Graham caught 3-of-9 targets Monday night. Graham's 33% catch rate is the second-lowest of his career (min. 5 targets). Graham caught 0-of-6 targets in Week 6 against the Patriots.- Pierre Thomas was held to 21 yards from scrimmage on Monday, including 0 rushing yards. Both are season lows. Thomas was held to 16 yards after the catch, another season low. Thomas leads all running backs in yards after the catch this season.- The Saints loaded the box often to try to take away Marshawn Lynch Monday night. Ten of Lynch's 16 rushes came against a loaded box. On those rushes, Lynch averaged 1.3 yards.

  • Russell Wilson completed 8-of-9 attempts against five or more pass rushers Monday. The 88.9 completion percentage against added pressure is tied for the worst the Saints have allowed in a game since 2006.--Russell Wilson is tied for the second-best Total QBR against added pressure among qualified quarterbacks (84.3).--Wilson has a 99.9 Total QBR against added pressure in each of his last three games.--Wilson was 3-of-3 for 66 yards and a touchdown when the Saints blitzed a defensive back.

  • Russell Wilson posted a 94.7 Total QBR against the Saints, his 9th game with a Total QBR above 90.0 in the last 2 seasons, and his 3rd straight game above 90.0. He joins a pretty good list, both Peyton Manning (97.2) and Tom Brady also had Total QBR games above 90.0 this week.

  • The last time the Seahawks scored 17+ points in the 1st quarter: Week 3 in 2008 vs Rams (scored 17).The last time the Saints allowed 17+ points in the 1st quarter: Week 1 in 2011 at Packers (allowed 21).

  • The 60-yard play from Russell Wilson to Zach Miller was both the 3rd-longest completion of Wilson's career and the 3rd-longest catch of Miller's career.
