The Seahawks didn't have a lot of highlights in their 24-21 loss to Miami on Sunday, but they did get one from veteran KR Leon Washington in the form a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
That one big play was enough to tie an NFL record and Washington NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors for Week 12.
With the game tied at 14 after a Dolphins' touchdown with 8:08 left in the fourth quarter, Washington took the ensuing kickoff 98 yards to give the Seahawks the lead. The score was the eighth kickoff return for a touchdown in Washington's seven-year career, tying him with Cleveland's Josh Cribbs for the NFL record.
It took Washington only 235 returns to reach the record-setting mark, while it took Cribbs 261. Source: CBS Sports Attached Thumbnails

Fantasy Football – Seattle Seahawks Week 13 Predictions
The Seattle Seahawks stay on the road this week where they are far less effective than they are at home. Add in the fact that they are up against the top defense in the NFL at Soldier Field and the prospects for a monster Fantasy day have to be considered dim at best Sunday.
That said there...
Richard Sherman is at the center of what could be a massive distraction for the Seattle Seahawks as they try to hold the last playoff spot in the NFC.
Yet the talkative cornerback said Wednesday that this week is the same as always, despite news leaking out of failed drug tests by Sherman and fellow starting cornerback Brandon Browner.

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas says he has been fined by the NFL for his roughing the passer penalty against Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill last week.
Thomas first tweeted about the fine, then confirmed it during the open locker room Wednesday. Thomas indicated in his tweet that he was fined $15,000.
Thomas' play became a huge turning point in the Dolphins' rally...
Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant (foot) and linebacker Leroy Hill (ankle) did not practice for a second straight day today, as the team worked out inside today.
Seattle head coach Pete Carroll told us on Wednesday that if Bryant cant play, Alan Branch would move outside to defensive end, and rookie Greg Scruggs would take Branchs place at defensive tackle.
Late in last Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, Earl Thomas was flagged for a highly questionable personal foul penalty.
On Wednesday, after he was slapped with a $15,000 fine by the NFL, the Seahawks' Pro Bowl safety took to Twitter to express his displeasure.
On the play, Thomas was rushing quarterback Ryan Tannehill...
With all of the hoopla surrounding Adderall and its related consequences, Bears receiver Brandon Marshall brought to light another performance-enhancing drug: the little blue pill.
Speaking at his weekly press conference, Marshall claims he's heard of players using Viagra to gain a competitive advantage on the field.

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...
Defensive tackle Red Bryant isn't going to practice Wednesday, coach Pete Carroll said, and his status for this week's game at Chicago is in doubt.
"His foot is really bothering him," Carroll said. "He's got a plantar fasciitis that he's dealing with. He's had it for a long time, but it's kind of flared up here in the last couple weeks. It...

Following their 28-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, the Chicago Bears moved to 8-3 on the season, tops in the NFC North.
The Bears defense bounced back from their breakdown against the 49ers in Week 11—when they gave up 353 yards—and held the Vikings to 258 yards in Week 12.
The Bears defense will try to keep that momentum going when the 6-5 Seattle Seahawks...
