Another blow out!
Two wins on the road for our Seahawks, quite a nice little surprise if you ask me.
Now though, our fate is not in our hands for the divisional race, thanks to the New England Patriots letting us down on Sunday night.
Yep, even when we beat San Francisco this coming Sunday night, the Seahawks faithful will have to rely on the lowly Arizona Cardinals to get a win on the final day of the season.
It doesn’t look like the best odds, but stranger things have happened before.
Like a Seattle Seahawks team putting up 108 points in two games.
With that, I give you my top 10!
10: Three in a row
As of right now, this team looks unstoppable.
With wins against the Bears, Cardinals, and Bills, the Hawks are a game away from clinching a playoff berth.
Plus, they have now won 5 of their last 6 to get in this position. Looks like the future is bright in Seattle.
9: Less jokes this time, but still sweet
I guess it’s just not as cool to pick on the Buffalo Bills the way it is to pick on the Arizona Cardinals.
That’s fine, this just means that the Hawks got a legitimate road win for the 2nd time in three weeks, and no more jokes are needed because this team is the real deal.
8: Prime time
Prior to the game last Sunday, the folks at NBC, FOX, and the NFL, all got together and thought that the Niners – Hawks matchup would be a good candidate for the Sunday Night prime time game.
As a non resident of the PNW, I am stoked, for I will get to see one more regular season game on TV before the playoffs start!
Marshawn Lynch en route to a TD on Sunday
7: Run Marshawn Run
With his latest 100 yard performance on Sunday, Marshawn Lynch marched up along side Chris Warren for the second most 100 yard games in a season in a Seahawks uniform.
Look for him to pass that this week against SF.
6: No Browner? No problem
It wasn’t a shut out like the previous week, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is a little bit better than John Skelton too.
The Seahawks were without Brandon Browner for the second of his four game suspension.
It makes it a little harder, but with a solid bench, the Seahawks are able to over compensate for his absence.
5: Speaking of suspensions
The other Hawk that flew too far away from home last month, Richard Sherman, will face his very own four game suspension appeal this Friday.
Two All-Pro defensive backs absent may be a little too much to overcome.
4: Run Russell Run
Rookie QB Russell Wilson made a little dash of his own into the record books on Sunday.
With three 1st half rushing TD’s, and a 4th added through the air, Wilson became the first player in the NFL to ever achieve that feat.
Not bad for a third rounder huh?
3: Move over New England, the Seahawks are in town
More record fodder for your late night beer drinking trivia league.
The Seahawks tied the New England Patriots for the third most points scored in back to back games.
The Pats did it earlier this year.
For those of you keeping track, that is 3 records that the Seahawks have either broken, or came into the top 5 in the history of the NFL in the last two weeks.
2: This kid just does it all
As if breaking an all time NFL record on Sunday just wasn’t enough for him, Russell Wilson decided to deliver the Gatorade National Player of the Year Award personally to Max Browne on his last day of high school at Skyline.
1: Play of the week
Why show just one play of the week, when I can show you all four of Russell Wilson’s TD’s all at once!
Here is the link to the video at nfl.com.
I’ll see you guys next week after our playoff clinching win!

The Seattle Seahawks have made the biggest jump on our power rankings this week rising from 13 to 7 and it isn’t hard to see why. Their 108 points over the past two weeks are about the biggest statement a team can make at this time of the season and it comes as they are in the heat of a playoff race for both the NFC wildcard and the division crown. Depending on their seeding Seattle...
Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks are the team that no one in the NFL wants to play right now. They are on an unbelievable roll. After going into Solider field and winning a game against the Chicago Bears that no one gave them a chance to win, The Seahawks' 150 points scored over the last three weeks are tied for third most by a team in any...
They told him he couldn’t play QB in the NFL, after all he was too short to look over his offensive lineman. When Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson declared for the draft it didn’t matter what his film showed, he was often cast aside by scouts and front offices because of his size. It would be generous to call Russell Wilson 5″11, yet he comes out and proves every week and...
We all knew it would come to this, right? We didn’t want to believe it but, deep down inside, we knew better. We all knew that one of the many bungled calls made by those replacement refs, who simultaneously entertained and enraged us the first three weeks of the 2012 season, would come back to haunt us.
It’s almost divine providence that their most infamous call could, if the...
The Seattle Seahawks have rolled their last two opponents by scores of 58-0 and 50-17, for a total combined margin of victory of 91 points. That doesn't happen very often as noted by NFL's Director of NFC Football Communications Randall Liu.

The Seattle Seahawks are on fire! They have scored 50+ points in two straight games – amazing. But that said it hasn’t translated into a whole lotta Fantasy love unless you were one of the brave souls that started Russell Wilson last week!

Wilson,Luck vs. same 8 opponents-NFC WEST Blog-ESPN
Two weeks ago, we provided upon request a look at how Seattle's Russell Wilson and Indianapolis' Andrew Luck fared against seven common opponents. The two impressive rookies have faced eight common opponents now that Seattle has also played the Buffalo Bills. The Seahawks and Colts have no additional common opponents...
Seattle took Toronto, Bills by storm
Canadian fans got to witness live NFL action on Sunday afternoon as the Bills played a “home game” in the Rogers Centre in downtown Toronto, Ontario. It wasn’t apparent that Buffalo had any sort of home field advantage, and if they did it sure didn’t rattle the Seahawks one bit.
From start to finish, like last week’s blowout win, the Seattle...
Seahawk’s Offense Starting to Turn Heads
We are 14 games into the regular season and the Seattle Seahawks appear to be peaking at the perfect time. Within a matter of weeks this Seahawks offense, which has been steadily improving throughout the season, has become one of the hot topics across the NFL.
This past Sunday the Seahawks dropped the Bills 50-17 just one week after rolling...
The Buffalo Bills continue to make their annual pilgrimage to the Great White North to play at least one official home game in Toronto, Canada per NFL season, but that does not mean that all of the players are on board. In fact, at least one Bills player is getting sick of this tradition.
Buffalo offensive lineman Eric Wood would like to play all eight home games in Ralph Wilson...
I’m going to be pretty peeved if the world ends before I get a chance to see the Seahawks and 49ers rematch on Sunday. The Mayan apocalypse can wait until after we see what is shaping up to be one of the best games of the season. The implications of the game are huge; if the 49ers win the game, they claim the NFC west … if the Seahawks win, there’s still a chance that they’ll...
Photo Credit: Rick Bowmer/AP The 2012 NFL Draft was one that was highlighted by two quarterbacks that were both worthy of being selected number 1 overall: Stanford’s Andrew Luck and Baylor’s Robert Griffin III. Well, who would have thought that with two weeks to go in the regular season a guy that was picked 75th overall by the Seattle Seahawks was the favorite to bring home...
The last time the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks met, it was an ugly defensive battle that the 49ers narrowly took away as a win, 13-6. This time around, the 49ers (as seen last week versus the Patriots) will bring a much more dynamic offense to the table with second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick, while equally impressive rookie quarterback Russell Wilson will try to...
With no Monday Night Football game this week, there will be the most amount of games on a single Sunday for the NFL season to date. This Sunday is a great day to have the DIRECTV NFL package, as there are 15 games slated for Sunday.
Game of the Week:
The last game of the weekend should be spectacular as Sunday Night Football pits the 9-5 Seattle Seahawks and the 10-3-1 San Francisco...
The San Francisco 49ers need one win to clinch their second straight NFC West title.
Getting that done this week will mean doing something no other team has this season - winning in Seattle.
The 49ers' top-ranked scoring defense could be in for a major test Sunday night when the high-scoring Seahawks will try to clinch their second playoff berth in three seasons and stay in...
