Seahawks Play Against Buccaneers As Running Back Alex Collins Gets Another Chance To Play Backup
The Seattle Seahawks played against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last night at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
The Seahawks have been thrilling their fans every time they play a game. They are consistent with their game playing the underdog and rising from the ashes.
Since 2012, they have made it a point to start the year with a lot of mess and close encounters and will eventually work their way to Super Bowl shape right after a couple of months.
According to SB Nation, the team's defense has played a big part in their success. The one constant for the Seahawks since 2012 has been their defense. Between 2012 and this season, they've been ranked 4, 1, 1, 2, and 8 respectively in total defense.
Was their defense enough during the game against the Buccaneers? The game against Tampa Bay did not fare well with the Seahawk. They did not score during the first quarter in which the opponent had 14. They tried to make up in the second quarter with five points to zero but failed to earn more points in the third and last quarter for both teams.
The game ended with 14 to 5 in favor of the Buccaneers. Despite this the team is hopeful. Among the many hopefuls, there is Alex Collins. It can be remembered that Collins was placed on the inactive list as he fumbled on his carry during their game against the New England.
Despite winning the game and despite having recovered from his mistake with a two-yard gain, Coach Pete Carroll still put him on the inactive list. But this did not stop Collins as he is now placed as a backup for Thomas Rawl because C.J. Prosise (shoulder) and Pope (ankle) are injured.
The News Tribune reported that Collin was happy to be back saying "I am looking forward to making the most of every opportunity I get - every opportunity my number is called."
