SEATTLE -- The feet of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Marshawn Lynch were enough to overcome those of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. Wilson's scrambling and Lynch's rumbling helped Seattle take a 30-20 win over the Vikings on a clear and unseasonably warm afternoon Sunday at CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks (5-4) snapped a two-game losing streak and stayed undefeated at home this season. The Vikings (5-4) are backtracking after a strong 5-2 start. Wilson, frequently avoiding pass rushers, completed 16 of 24 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns. Lynch topped 100 rushing yards for the fifth time this season, finishing with 124 yards on 26 carries. The Vikings' offense was stifled in the second half when it went away from Peterson and began throwing much more often. After Peterson gained 144 yards on 12 carries in the first half, he was given the ball just five more times in the second half for another 38 yards. Pet...

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch set the standard for what is known as "beast mode".What it means is that a runner is running with such ferocity and power, that the very Earth trembles beneath it every time they carry the ball.I chose those words on purpose, because for me the first time I saw Lynch go "beast mode" was in a Wild Card playoff game following...

Pete Carroll called it a textbook example of how the Seattle Seahawks want to close out a victory, with the ball in their hands and the final seconds ticking away.
It only came after Carroll watched Adrian Peterson gash his defense for the entire first half.

So the NFL’s trade deadline has come and gone. Did you even notice? Do you even care? I’m guessing that the answer to both of those questions is no. There have been a total of two trades since this regular season started. Both of those trades occurred this week. One involved a wide receiver, Mike Thomas being sent from Jacksonville to Detroit to be the fourth wide receiver on...

While it’s still a little early to talk playoffs, this game had lots of playoff implications. With both teams coming in at 4...
Grades Are In
The Seattle Seahawks went 2-2 during the first quarter of the season. As I expected, they split the games in the second quarter of the season as well.
After the first half of the season, the 4-4 Seahawks are tied for 7th place in the NFC and are 3rd place in the NFC West.
Here is how they got there:

The Seahawks and the Vikings both rely on two of the best running backs. When Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch are workhorses, team success follows. The numbers show it.
The tough part is done
Starting with this past weeks matchup with the Minnesota Vikings, the Seattle Seahawks have officially gotten into the weak part of their schedule.
Of course with three conference games remaining, and the away game at Soldier Field, nothing is a gimme.
The Seahawks have been scoring in droves the past two weeks, and next week’s game against the New York...
Home sweet home
The Seattle Seahawks were on the road again last week and had a big chance to end their losing streak away from home. They came close, but with 20 seconds left in the game, their hopes were crushed as Matt Stafford led a last second drive to re-take the lead and put the dagger in the Seahawks.
This week, the Seahawks are at home again and they face another NFC North...
