10/02/17 - RB J.D. McKissic, inactive for the first three games this season, took his first carry of the year 30 yards to put Seattle ahead 25-18 in the third quarter.
"It's a tremendous thing (to contribute to the team) it's a huge thing for me," McKissic said, "but even if I didn't score tonight, I would still give it my all on special teams."
McKissic was signed off waivers late last year and came into the game with two carries for 5 yards in a Seahawks uniform. After no action in the first half, he finished the game with 38 yards on the ground, 27 through the air and two touchdowns.
"I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity and contribute to the team and help get this beautiful W," McKissic said. "I had the linebacker on me and I wanted to beat him. I knew Russell would go to me with a single high (safety). I beat the linebacker outside and found the ball."
