The Seahawks lose for the third time at home this season, this time losing 23-17 to the St. Louis Rams. Leading from start to finish, they snap Russell Wilson and the Seahawks’ streak of having a lead at some point during the game. Adam and Brandan talk about how it seemed like St. Louis was going to win when they managed to fumble their way down the field on their way to 23 points. Seattle had a chance at coming back up until Wilson lost the ball on the 10-yard line with less than five minutes to play.
Looking ahead, the guys take a look at the Seahawks potential playoff matchups and who they’d like to see the team play among the Packers, Vikings and Skins. Based on the outcome of the Seahawks and Cardinals, the Sunday night game could determine which team will play the Seahawks in the first round. This week’s game against the Cardinals will be Seattle’s first chance to get into playoff mode, playing on the road against a team that has a shot to lock up the top seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
We respond to emails that came in this week before getting into Do Better. This week’s picks are the San Diego Chargers organization and a guy in the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame with more than 20 Sports Emmys on his shelf at home. Better at life honors go out to J.J. Abrams this week and a 15-year veteran wide receiver who has decided to return for a final season.
