After Bradley McDougald and the Seahawks secondary delivered a sparkling performance on "Monday Night Football," they will try using that momentum in their next game against the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium.
"My guys were just out there ready to fight (on Monday Night Football),” said McDougald. "When I looked at the DB’s (defensive backs), I knew these guys were willing to do whatever it took that night and going forward. These guys are clicking and they're gelling at the right time."
The Seahawks secondary knows it will big a huge challenge trying to slow down George Kittle, who ranks second in the NFL in receiving yards by a tight end.
"He's crafty in the way he operates and the way he runs his routes,” said McDougald. “I have a lot of respect for him the last time we played him. If you give a guy like that some space, he took it to the house (in San Francisco’s last game against Denver), 80-yards and that’s a credit to him.”
Now, McDougald and the Seahawks secondary are ready to do their part to help Seattle clinch a playoff berth.
"It's a goal we set out for as a group and we're just one step closer,” said McDougald.
As the Seahawks secondary looks to duplicate that performance the 12s were treated to at CenturyLink Field, Russell Wilson said he’s hoping wide receiver Doug Baldwin will be back on the field on Sunday.
"You always want Doug in because he's one of the best receivers in the game,” said Wilson. “When unfortunately he can't go in the game because he's dinged up or whatever, it's always different just because we've thrown so many touchdowns together. I know that he's dying to get back out there, that's for sure."
