(Eds: Adds details, quotes. With AP Photos.) By CURTIS CRABTREE Associated Press Eight games into his inaugural campaign as starting quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson has begun to find a groove.
The Seahawks have put more on Wilson's plate in recent weeks as Seattle has gone to the passing game more frequently. Seattle has averaged over 30 carries a game for the season. But of Seattle's four games with fewer than 30 carries, three have come in the last three weeks.
Part of that has been because of the increased faith in Wilson.
Wilson has responded by putting together two of his best performances in the last three weeks. Wilson rallied the Seahawks from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to stun the New England Patriots. Wilson threw for 293 yards and three touchdowns as the Seahawks won 24-23 at home.
Wilson then had his most efficient game last week against the Detroit Lions, going 25 for 35 for 236 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Wil...
BEST OF MAXIM
As a lifelong Seahawks fan, that question is something I have pondered over and over again. The answer I come up with is this: I just do not know, but it is something that must be figured out in order for them to make the leap from pretender to contender. To be considered a legitimate contender, it simply must happen. No team can win a Super Bowl, let alone a few playoff games...
Grades Are In
The Seattle Seahawks went 2-2 during the first quarter of the season. As I expected, they split the games in the second quarter of the season as well.
After the first half of the season, the 4-4 Seahawks are tied for 7th place in the NFC and are 3rd place in the NFC West.
Here is how they got there:
Seattle won 16-12
Despite having seven penalties and...
The Seahawks continue to hang around and play well. The NFC is very competitive and they'll need to snag a wildcard slot to make the playoffs this season. With GB probably getting the first WC, there's still hope for Seattle.

Yet another close one goes array
Too many times this year, the Seahawks have come up just short, we’re talking within a touchdown of a victory.
Is it any coincidence that these games all have taken place on the road?
This team has been absolutely amazing at home since moving into their new digs at CenturyLink Field, and yet, this same team just can’t seem to find a niche for...
Last week: 14 (-0)
No the sky is not falling with this team. They just went on the road for 2 games. Everything will be fine this week when the play the Vikings back in Seattle, where they play 5 of their final 8 games. They’ll still be right in the NFC playoff mix, but they will have to win 1 more road game. 9 wins probably won’t cut it in the NFC and that’s assuming...
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin should play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, two weeks after sustaining a high ankle sprain, according to the Seattle Times. Baldwin was expected to take longer to heal, but practiced all week to the surprise of coach Pete Carroll on Friday. "You can't even explain it, but he pulled it off," Carroll said. "It...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings understand the tease with Seattle Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice very well from his first four years in the league. In the past two years, Seattle has learned quickly that Rice can be one of the NFL's best wide receivers, when healthy.
That's been the rub for Rice.
The talented, 6-foot-4 receiver has played in 16 games only once...
The Vikings defense will face Sidney Rice for the first time since he took a big payday with the Seahawks. Rice recounted his days in Minnesota and confirmed the Vikings made an effort to keep him.

The Vikings will have at least one new starter in their defensive backfield Sunday when they face the Seattle Seahawks.
The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks didn't end the first half of the season how they wanted. Both are hoping the second half starts on a positive note Sunday.
The Vikings will try to rebound from their most lopsided loss of the year and hand a third consecutive defeat to the Seahawks, who seek their best start at home since 2005.
This game features the NFL's top...
The top two running backs in the league will be on the same field Sunday. But the comparisons between Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch go far beyond this season’s yardage totals. See how similar they are and what the Vikings had to say about Lynch.
