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. . @seahawks have won past 2 by 91 points, largest combined margin of victory in 2-game span in @nfl since 1941 Bears (95) — Randall Liu (@RLiuNFL) December 18, 2012 Over 70 years ago, the Bears coached by George Hala with Sid Luckman at quarterback beat the Chicago Cardinals 53-7 at Wrigley Field on Oct 12, 1941.  Then beat the Lions 49-0 the next week.   Seattle wouldn't have recorded it's 91 point mark if coach Pete Carroll wouldn't have allowed a fake punt to occur in the fourth quarter Sunday while ahead of the Buffalo Bills 47-17.    "I feel bad about this," said Carroll. "It was part of our game plan. It was something I could have called off and didn't." Seattle's fake punt came one week after the Seahawks were criticized for throwing a pass into the end zone on fourth-and-23 while holding a 50-0 lead over the Arizona Cardinals.   Either way the Seahawks ability to dominate NFL teams the way they have the past two weeks is impressive.
