During the Pete Carroll era, the Seattle Seahawks have the second-most wins in the NFL in this time span, trailing only the New England Patriots, although more than a few of their wins have been rather unconventional.

It always seems like the Seahawks are playing in the most bizarre and chaotic games. If there is an unusual way to claim victory, the Seahawks have likely done it and will continue to do so. One such wild scenario during which the Seahawks keep finding wins is when it comes to opposing quarterback’s passing yards.

Under Carroll, Seattle is an astonishing 8-0 when the opposing signal-caller has 400+ yards. When the Seahawks defeated the Falcons 38-25 on Sunday, Falcons QB Matt Ryan became the latest victim as his 450 passing yards were not enough to keep up with the Seahawks.

While sometimes high passing yardage total can be a tad misleading, perhaps indicating plenty of garbage time yards while the Seahawks were going into cruise control (such as Week 1 against Atlanta and last year against the Falcons as well when Seattle had built a 24-0 halftime lead) this is not usually the case with the Seahawks.

Typically, these games are explosive shootouts the Seahawks manage to survive against. Such as the vastly entertaining 41-38 win over the Texans in 2017, or the 39-30 home victory over the Steelers in 2015 – a contest where Russell Wilson threw five touchdown passes for the first time.

The road to victory may be unconventional at times, but as long as the final destination results in a W, it’s doubtful the Seahawks or the 12th Man cares how the team got there.
