NFL Draft Zone:
When the Seattle Seahawks are at home they are almost impossible to beat, because those fans and players realize they play extremely well at home. Russell Wilson looks like a probowler when he plays at home as well. Russell Wilson completed 16-of-24 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns versus the Vikings in Week 9. Wilson found Golden Tate for scores for six and 11 yards and tossed an 11-yard touchdown to Sidney Rice, all in the first half. He was on the way to his way to his finest fantasy game of the season, only to see his coaches take the air out of the ball with a second-half lead and Christian Ponder unable to move his own offense. Wilson has a tougher matchup versus Rex Ryan’s Jets in Week 10.
If Wilson can keep up his success at home, expect to see both Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez out in New York. They are coming off a bye and have had 2 weeks to prepare for the Seattle team. Hopefully they are practicing on how to run, because if they are thinking of beating the big cornerbacks of Seattle through the air with their suspect wide outs, they are destined to fail badly.
BEST OF MAXIM
This was a great play that was drawn up, and pretty much everyone on the defense bit on the wide receiver screen. The execution was even more impressive and while it wasn’t the greatest throw of all-time, Seahawks TE Zach Miller made a hell of a catch off the pass from Sidney Rice. It’s just a shame that this one didn’t go for six, otherwise it would be the play of the day.Via: SB Nation
Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson racked up an amazing 182 yards rushing Sunday against the Seahawks.Fantasy Spin:With his two touchdowns on Sunday Peterson now has six scores for the season. Over his last three games, he's piled up 458 yards for an average of 153 rushing yards per contest.
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...
[Note: This article was supposed to go up late last week, but due to other concerns it had to go unfinished until now. But while the subject matter is a bit past tense, if nothing else I figured it’d serve as a nice frame of reference when I take a look at the game tape for the Vikings game.]
The Seahawks’ pass coverage against the Lions was ugly, and looking at it on...
Run-stuffing defensive end Red Bryant and linebacker Leroy Hill will both be game-time decisions for the Seattle Seahawks entering Sunday's big NFC matchup at Chicago.
Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Bryant was held out of practice for a third straight day with a foot injury. Hill went through a workout to test his sore ankle, but how the injury responds will determine if...

Boxscore | Play-by-Play | Q’s Post Game Recap
Last week the offense played well enough to win, but the defense gave the game away. This week the offense held the ball for 1o minutes and 53 seconds of the fourth quarter, including the final 5:27, where they converted on two 4th downs, to put the game away.
In all fairness, the defense tightened up...
It appears that Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate is putting together a solid game against the Minnesota Vikings as he already have two touchdowns.
Check out his second score as he flips over a Vikings defender:

Adrian Peterson is a hell of a running back (losing K.J. Wright early hurt the run defense in a big way), but it's hard to win games when your quarterback only manages to throw for 62 yards.
More importantly, the Seahawks offense was able to overcome some bad drops early on and move the chains when it needed to most, thanks in large part to a good performance by Russell Wilson...
Seattle returned home to end a two-game losing streak, while the Cardinals once promising season continues to slip away.
The Seahawks are predicated on a strong running game, a solid defense and feeding off momentum at home. We review Seattle’s strengths and weaknesses on a position-by-position basis.
Stopping Peterson & Harvin Likely Key
After what was probably the worst defensive outing of the season for the Seattle Seahawks, the team will hope to rebound this Sunday when the Minnesota Vikings roll into town.
The job doesn’t get any easier for the Seahawks defense, as they will have to shut down a pair of Pro Bowlers in Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin if they want...
