Twelve numbers that helped tell the story of the Seahawks’ Week 12 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.John Boyle

The Seahawks fell to 6-5 with Sunday's 40-34 overtime loss to the Raiders, a game that saw a few issues from their previous loss in Munich carry over after the bye. In addition to that final score, here are 12 numbers that tell the story of Sunday's game:

229

Rushing yards gained by Raiders running back Josh Jacobs, the most ever by a Seahawks opponent, surpassing Bo Jackson's 221-yard game at the Kingdome in 1989. Like Jackson, who scored a 91-yard touchdown in that game, Jacobs did a lot of damage on one carry, scoring on an 86-yard touchdown in overtime to win the game. With Jacobs leading the way, the Raiders averaged 7.1 yards per carry and rushed for 283 yards as a team.

303

Total scrimmage yards for Jacobs, the second most ever by a Seahawks opponent, trailing Kansas City running back Priest Holmes' 307 yards in a 2002.

65

Rushing yards gained by the Seahawks on 23 carries, their second straight game in which it was a struggle to run the ball.

2

Turnovers committed by the Seahawks, their third multi-turnover game of the season, two of which have been losses.

8 for 14

The Raiders' conversion rate on third down, including a 5 for 7 mark in the first half. That comes on the heels of Tampa Bay going 10 for 15 on third down against the Seahawks in Week 10.

1

Sack, recoded by Poona Ford, for the Seahawks on Sunday, which followed a sack-free game against Tampa Bay in Week 10. During a four-game winning streak leading up to that game in Munich, the Seahawks had 19 sacks.

2

Interceptions by Quandre Diggs in the first quarter, his first two of the season. Prior to Sunday's game, the Raiders had committed just seven turnovers, the fewest in the NFL. Thanks to those interceptions, the Seahawks have now recorded multiple takeaways in nine of their 11 games this season.

133.2

Geno Smith's passer rating for the game following his second-quarter interception, yet another example of the quarterback's resilience. Following that interception, Smith went 5 for 5 on Seattle's next drive including a 35-yard touchdown to Lockett, and he was 20 for 25 for 239 yards and two scores the rest of the game following the pick.

9

Touchdown runs by rookie running back Kenneth Walker III, all in the past seven games, after he scored two more on Sunday.

4

Consecutive games with a receiving touchdown by Tyler Lockett after Sunday's 35-yard score, one short of the franchise record shared by Steve Largent, Joey Galloway and Doug Baldwin.

11

Receptions by DK Metcalf for 90 yards, one short of his career high for catches in a game.

16

Tackles made by Jordyn Brooks, who leads the NFL with 122.
