Players of the game
Seahawks defensive tackle Red Bryant had three solo tackles, half a sack and he became the first player in franchise history to block two field goals in a single game before being ejected in the fourth quarter of Seattle's loss.
Cleveland kicker Phil Dawson made two field goals, each from 53 yards, and those two kicks made him Man of the Match in a football game with fútbol-like scoring.
Play of the game
Leon Washington returned a punt 81 yards for what appeared to be the go-ahead touchdown only to have it called back because of a block-in-the-back penalty against Kennard Cox. Cleveland's Kevin Dockery may have, um, embellished the impact of that block in the back, drawing the flag that nullified what would have been Washington's first touchdown of the season. Instead of six points, Seattle had first down at its own 45. Quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was intercepted on the game's next play.
The Browns had the ball at their own...

One of the themes I’ve been seeing from Seahawks fans today has been outrage about the phantom illegal block in the back call on the Leon Washington return for a TD. The call was an awful call. Everyone thinks it was awful. Even the Fox announcers said it was awful. I also get that the 7 points was enough to change the outcome of the game. I can do the math as good as anyone,...
Brandon Choate breaks down the week 7 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns in his Seahawks Monday morning quarterback. The offense was offensive as the defense and special teams did their job to keep the Seahawks in the game. Kam Chancellor, Red Bryant and Earl Thomas played well while Charlie Whitehurst did not.
Touchdowns? The Browns don’t need no stinking touchdowns! In a game that will never be remembered as a clinic on how to play offensive football (and may not be remembered by anyone other than Sehawks defensive tackle Red Bryant), the Browns beat the Seahawks 6-3 to get their record back to .500 on the season.…
After each week of the regular season and possibly during the NFL playoffs should the Seattle Seahawks be so lucky Dave B will stop by and bring you his Seahawks game balls.

Good morning. I’m on my way back to Seattle. We’ll hold our Monday Morning QB live chat at 1 p.m., so stop by and join in the conversation. Meanwhile, check out what is being said about the Seattle Seahawks 6-3 loss to Cleveland on Sunday. My game story deals with Seattle’s struggles offensively, including quarterback Charlie Whitehurst’s poor performance, perhaps answering...

Even when the Seahawks managed to find the end zone on Sunday, they weren’t allowed to score.
Leon Washington appeared to finally get the struggling Seahawks on the board with an 81-yard punt return for a touchdown in the third quarter.
But it was called...
That was an ugly, ugly game. The botched call that negated a return TD by Leon Washington ended up deciding the game, but Charlie Whitehurst's poor accuracy did far more damage to Seattle than the refs could ever hope to do. He had no feel for the pocket, threw pass after pass into double and triple coverage, and locked on to his primary receivers all game long. Here'...
After further review, a look at the NFL's day games during Week 7 shows that points were taken off the board four different times because of penalties. Also, in the 11 day games, a total of 1,408 penalty yards of penalties were called.
That's a lot, folks. NFL officials have a very tough job and they don't get every call right. But after tracking their performance for...
There have been a lot of bad weekends of football among Washington’s big three programs over the last three years, but few have been as embarrassing as this one.
In order, the Huskies were revealed by seventh-ranked Stanford to be major pretenders to the Top 25, the Cougars opened the door for Paul Wulff to get shoved out with an unacceptable blowout loss to one-win Oregon State...
An illegal block — on a questionable call — wiped out Leon Washington's 81-yard punt return for a touchdown Sunday, and the Seahawks couldn't muster much offense in a sloppy 6-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns, whose only points came on a pair of long field goals by Phil Dawson.
Desperate for a big play with backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst unable...

Mike Carey blows the call and the game. I am generally not one to blame the refs or the other team when my team loses, but this game was an exception. When the flag was thrown on Leon Washington’s 81 yard punt return it was clear the play would be nullified by a call such as an illegal block in the back as punts returns and kick returns are commonly...
