Hard-fought 20-13 victory over Jeff Fisher’s team serves as good tuneup for playoffs.
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.
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has won his appeal against a four-game suspension regarding a violation of the NFL’s performance enhancing drug policy.
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?
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw four touchdown passes, and Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch ran for 111 yards and scored twice as the Hawks easily blew out the San Francisco 49ers 42-13 in Seattle and clinched a playoff berth for the second time in Pete Carroll’s three seasons.
Dropped passes and poor rush defense were the reasons the Seahawks lost 13-6 in San Francisco in Week Seven. Seattle will have to be better in both departments if it is going to win this time.
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 are down two of their top three corners this week, and could be without all three as soon as next week, leaving Walter Thurmond and a bunch of young guys to hold up the back end.
Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman Carpenter, whose knee is bothering him, was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list, and little-used wide receiver Braylon Edwards was waived/injured.
