The Seattle Seahawks placed safety Delano Hill on injured reserve after he suffered a non-displaced fracture in his hip in the regular-season finale against Arizona.
Sebastian Janikowski’s stats this season are fairly pedestrian, but when you break it down, the Seahawks’ oldest player has made big kicks in the biggest moments. And that’s why Seattle is back in the playoffs.
It was a fret-fest practically from the start, a sloppy affair in which the Seahawks managed to puncture the giddy air of optimism that had prevailed since the Kansas City win.
Sebastian Janikowski made a 33-yard field goal on the final play and the Seattle Seahawks beat the Arizona Cardinals 27-24 on Sunday, wrapping up the No. 5 seed in the NFC playoffs and a matchup at Dallas.
Part of the Seattle Seahawks’ mantra with Pete Carroll in charge is every week is important, every game has the same significance.
The Seahawks did the requisite amount of savoring on Sunday night, sprinkled with just a little bit of sass, and why not?
Doug Baldwin is one of the few still on the Seattle Seahawks roster who has hung around long enough to give an accurate and comprehensive read on coach Pete Carroll – who received a three-year contract extension Monday.
The Seattle Seahawks’ 38-31 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs showed that they belong in the playoffs. And young roster or not, they’re looking more and more like a team that could contend for a title.
Russell Wilson threw a 2-yard pass to Ed Dickson with 7:31 left for his third touchdown strike, Chris Carson rushed for two scores, and the Seattle Seahawks clinched an NFC wild-card berth with a 38-31 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.
For all the brilliance Patrick Mahomes has shown this season in leading Kansas City to the cusp of a division title and possibly the No. 1 seed in the AFC, he’s never been in the situation of showing he can win a late-season game in a hostile environment that could ultimately help determine how far the Chiefs go in the postseason. That unknown about Mahomes makes Sunday night’s matchup with Kansas City visiting Seattle fascinating in a game filled with playoff implications.
The Seattle Seahawks haven’t gotten the production this year that they have come to expect from Doug Baldwin, who has been their top receiver for most of his career since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2011.
Pete Carroll and Co. took a chance on a punter in the fifth round for a reason. But Dickson has been even better than the Seahawks’ staff could have hoped.
