Here’s hoping all of you are having a great time over the holidays -- I’ve spent most of this week pinballing from one family gathering to the next. Really though, with the Seahawks playing as well as they are right now, someone could drop a Buick on my leg and I’d still think this was a pretty awesome week (well, after I stopped screaming in pain long enough to think about it, anyway).
I’ll do a full stats workup for the season after the Rams game, but here are a few tidbits in the meantime:
1) Russell Wilson is one passing touchdown away from tying Peyton Manning’s rookie record of 26. Reaching or surpassing that mark on Sunday would go a long way toward strengthening Wilson’s chances of earning Offensive Rookie of the Year honors (speaking of which, I recently contributed an argument in his favor to fellow Bloguin football site This Given Sunday).
2) The Seahawks defense is allowing opponents to score an average of just 15.47 points per game...
