The Seahawks overcame a lot in last week's 27-24 win over the Packers. They won despite a fumble on the opening play that was quickly turned into a score, they won despite a huge touchdown throw from Aaron Rodgers to put the Packers up by double digits early on in the game, and they overcame a rough first half by Russell Wilson. Not only that, they racked up a few pre-snap penalties, Kyler Fackrell had a huge day, and they even got some help in a few key areas late in the game.
The running game continues to have a positive impact for the Seahawks. With Carson, Penny and Davis all proving to be solid options, they continue to impose their will on teams. It showed up in the final four minutes of the game when they showed the Packers that they would not get the ball back and have a chance at some late-game magic. It was a stark contrast to a team that led at the half, yet fed their lead back only four times in the final 30 minutes of the game.
Now at 5-5, Seattle will travel across the country and face their second to last road team for the season before hosting four of their final five games. Carolina is coming off two road losses, but they return home where they have proven to be a very different team. The Panthers, Rams, Patriots and Chiefs are perfect at home this year. Fortunately, Seattle has been a very good road team after losing their opening two games on the road. The guys talk about how similarly the two teams match up going into a critical game for Seattle to maintain momentum toward a playoff spot.
In the final segment of the show, they talk about how the national media seems to be coming around to the idea that Seattle is a team with playoff potential. They take a look at the winners from the pickem league this week and welcome new members of the flock from getintheflock.com.
Do better nods this week go out to media members who offer a poor explanation of what happened in the Le'Veon Bell holdout and his decision to sit out the season and to the historic matchup on Monday Night Football. Better at life honors go to a college in New York for a shine created to honor Danny DeVito and to the Seahawks who were among the top 25 finalists for the 2019 Hall of Fame.
