Today the NFL dropped a $15,000 fine on safety Earl Thomas for his game changing penalty.

Undeniably bad on the road.
The Seattle Seahawks play in one of the NFL's most remote outposts. It's partly why they are so dominant at home, going 5-0 with three victories by at least 10 or more points this season while playing before one of the rowdiest fan bases in football...
