Seattle Seahawks Week 5 Offensive & Defensive Game Balls

Week 5 MVP’s

What a game! The Seattle Seahawks played tough and it appeared as though the game was going to get away from them winning in shocking fashion 36-25.


After losing Tavaris Jackson, the Seahawks rallied behind Charlie Whitehurst and with a major league assist from the defense pulled off an improbable upset of the New York Giants.

A notoriously bad road team – particularly in the Eastern Time Zone where they have lost nine straight, a complete team effort got it done.

The Seahawks as a team should get a Game Ball but let’s look at a couple of standouts on offense and defense worthy of this week’s singular honors.


WR Doug Baldwin Baldwin has taken advantage of every opportunity given him and has improved at an incredible rate.

Mike Williams was out on Sunday meaning that the rookie would be getting a whole lot more attention that he was accustomed to.

Baldwin simply delivered – eight catches for 163 yards including a 27 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter gave the Hawks a glimmer of hope.

He looked good with Tavaris Jackson at quarterback and with Charlie Whitehurst as his pivot.

Doug Baldwin is my more-than-worthy recipient of the Week 5 Game Ball.


DB Brandon Browner is there any doubt? Browner’s interception return for a touchdown sealed the deal on Sunday.

He was also credited with three passes defensed and six tackles in the game.

Browner is a reason to be excited about this defense going forward and on Sunday played his best game of the season.

Enjoy the Game Ball Brandon – you deserve it!
