Washington is a lot like the San Francisco team that was blown out by Seattle two weeks ago, but the Hawks will have to stop the running game and beat Jim Haslett’s exotic blitzes.
The biggest injury to watch in Seattle’s game against Washington is Robert Griffin III’s sprained knee.
Walter Thurmond is on IR, but Browner returns to his spot opposite Richard Sherman, and Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell are more experienced after having filled in for Browner over the last three weeks.
Coach Pete Carroll calls Wilson’s development “instrumental” in Seattle’s ability to finish games and make the playoffs this season.
Hard-fought 20-13 victory over Jeff Fisher’s team serves as good tuneup for playoffs.
The Seahawks are OK at cornerback with Richard Sherman winning his suspension appeal and Trufant returning, but they might be without linebacker Leroy Hill and right tackle Breno Giacomini.
Jeff Fisher has the Rams on the cusp of their first winning season since 2003. That said, he realizes how tough it will be to beat a Seattle team that has scored 150 points the past three weeks and possesses the No. 1 scoring defense in the league. A fake field goal is not likely to be enough this time.
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?
The second-year receiver has had a disappointing season, but his two-touchdown game in the 42-13 blowout of the 49ers could be a harbinger of things to come in the playoffs.
