He played minimally down the stretch (two carries and three catches in the Seahawks' final three games, including the playoffs), was a bubble player throughout training camp, made the squad but was inactive for the first three games.
Seattle Seahawks players, including defensive end Michael Bennett, third from left, sit during the singing of the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Indianapolis Colts, Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, in Seattle.
"We were electric. The crowd was electric". Richardson has been usable this season, gaining at least 59 yards or scoring a touchdown in each of his four games.
Thomas led the Seahawks with seven tackles (four solo) while Wagner had six (four solo) and half a sack. Seattle broke a franchise record with 36 points in a half.
The only mistake of the first half was Brissett underthrowing a pass that Justin Coleman undercut and returned 28 yards for a touchdown. Safe to say, Week Five at home versus the 49ers (0-4) is a must win if the Colts are going to have any realistic playoff shot come the second half of 2017.
Seattle's defense, meanwhile, after giving up 205 yards of offense in the first half, limited the Colts to just 31 yards in the second half.
"If the anthem is played, everyone should stand at attention and respect the anthem and respect the flag", said Davis. "He's Mr. Cool and it's hard to get him there".
The Colts played a almost flawless first half, the only mistake being Jacoby Brissett's pass that Coleman undercut and returned for a score. "At halftime, you couldn't tell".
Carson finished with 66 total yards on 15 touches before exiting on Sunday.
"It's a tremendous thing (to contribute to the team), it's a huge thing for me", McKissic said, "but even if I didn't score tonight, I would still give it my all on special teams". There would be another pick in the second, though both balls could - and in the second case should - have been catches. The blowout will mask numerous problems that still beset this team - and the ever-growing notion that it isn't special anymore. Wilson was 21-of-26 for 295 yards. That set up a 6-yard Wilson-to-Luke Willson pass play for a touchdown and an insurmountable 39-18 lead.
"We still knew there were 30 minutes left to go", Brissett said. "I came out and just ran as fast as I could". It's from the other guys.
"I'm getting sick of not finishing", said safety Darius Butler.
Isn't it great to see Wilson show some rage? He just hadn't had his shot yet. "But it's significant. So, we'll see".
The Seahawks now venture to Los Angeles next Sunday for a meeting with the Rams (3-1), who lead the NFC West Division after a 35-30 victory over Dallas. They have a good energy right now. They just had to do all the precautionary work to make sure he's OK.
