For just the 12th time in franchise history, the Seattle Seahawks have now won 10 or more games. Russell Wilson has helped to make that happen as he has been the quarterback for 7 of those 12 double digit winning seasons. The latest 10 win season comes after a 37-30 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Although the Seahawks were down at halftime, it was clear the defense had Cousins, Cook and Diggs bottled up in the first half outside of the first and last drives of the first half. A huge third quarter propelled Seattle to a three-score lead in the fourth quarter, but as we've learned to expect, no lead is ever safe.
Looking ahead to the Sunday Night Football game against the Rams, Seattle will look to continue their 3-0 prime time streak, Carroll's streak of undefeated games in prime time in December, and Pete's next win has a chance to be his 100th victory on a field that helped propel him back into the NFL as the coach for the Seahawks. To get the win the Seahawks will have to find a way to keep Aaron Donald in check, put pressure on Jared Goff and deal with a new piece of the Rams puzzle with Jalen Ramsey now at corner.
Closing out the first half of the show, we discuss the injury that Jadeveon Clowney is dealing with and somewhat recent context of what Marshawn Lynch went through at the end of the 2015 season. It may be an injury that Clowney will decide to fight through until the offseason.
In the second half of the show, we talk more about how the playoff picture is shaping up for the Seahawks. We also congratulate those who have won the last few weeks in the pick'em.
