Offensive spotlight: Although both quarterbacks put up big numbers, it was Geno Smith who played with less volatility. He made two big-time throws and no turnover-worthy plays in a performance that should earn him a 90.0-plus grade.

Defensive spotlight: The main victim of Smith's proficiency was Lions cornerback Jeffrey Okudah, who surrendered  124 yards on five catches. He did break up one of the six targets sent into his coverage, but it was still a day to forget.

Rookie spotlight: Aidan Hutchinson posted two quarterback hits on 24 pass-rushing snaps to go along with three stops in run defense. It's set to be easily the highest-graded game of his young NFL career.

Offensive line spotlight: Rookie Charles Cross stayed clean in pass protection on 32 such snaps in an overall excellent outing for Seattle's line. The unit combined to give up just three pressures, only one of which was a quarterback hit.
