The Seahawks scored 27 points or more in each of their first eight games this season, but have reached that total only once in the four games since. The last two games have been especially tough for Seattle’s offense, as they scored 23 in a win over Philadelphia and were held to 17 by the Giants on Sunday.
Those last two games have something in common. Right tackle Brandon Shell missed both of them with a high ankle sprain, and 710 ESPN Seattle’s Jake Heaps thinks there may be something to that.
“Brandon Shell has proven himself to be more valuable as you have watched what has transpired without him,” Heaps said. “This offensive line has not protected Russell Wilson as well as when he was in there, and they have not been as effective in the running game overall without Brandon Shell.”
