Ryan Longwell reportedly will take over kicking duties for the injured Steven Hauschka, and the Hawks have replaced Chris Clemons for now. But they need to address kicker and the pass rush more permanently after the season.
The loss of Clemons against Washington means Irvin, the team’s surprise first-round pick, must step up against Atlanta.
Pete Carroll confirmed Monday the results of an MRI on the injured left knee of defensive end Chris Clemons won’t allow him to suit up for the remainder of the Seahawks’ playoff run.
The Seattle Seahawks overcame a 14-0 deficit and a poor performance in the red zone to knock off the Washington Redskins and move on to play the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.
Marshawn Lynch, Max Unger, Russell Okung, Earl Thomas and Leon Washington were all deserving choices, while Richard Sherman and Chris Clemons were left out.
A three-game stretch of historic blowouts has turned Seattle into the team no one wants to play, but can the Seahawks go all the way?
Sunday’s 50-17 blowout of the Buffalo Bills put the Seattle Seahawks one game away from a playoff berth.
The Seattle Seahawks put up perhaps its most dominating performance in franchise history, rushing for a season-high 284 yards while creating eight turnovers and setting a team record for points.
The Seattle Seahawks have lost a couple they could have won and won a couple they could have lost, rookie QB Russell Wilson has taken great strides, and the defense and running game have been every bit as strong as fans thought they would be.
Among the other Seattle players having great seasons are punter Jon Ryan, safety Kam Chancellor and center Max Unger. Richard Sherman and Brandon Mebane are not getting the same recognition despite their own stellar seasons.
