Monday morning, you guys.

Instant reaction: Seahawks pummel Bills " Seahawks Draft Blog
The Seahawks hit 50 for the second week in a row and sent a message to the rest of the NFC. This team means business.

Quick hits: Seahawks run away with win over Bills - Blog -
The lead. The Seahawks took care of business in a big way against an inferior Bills team, scoring at least 50 points for the second straight game. Russell Wilson ran for three touchdowns and threw for another as Seattle's offense moved the ball at will. This win, as convincing as it was, combined with the overtime victory in Chicago two weeks ago should ease some fears about the Seahawks' ability to win away from CenturyLink Field. Seattle is 9-5 with two home games remaining, including one next week against San Francisco that could determine first place in the NFC West.

"I feel bad about this," Carroll told reporters after the 50-17 victory. "That was part of our game plan. It was something I could have called off and I didn’t. It was an automatic for us, and I didn’t do it. It happened. We’re trying to make first downs, so I let it go. It’s unfortunate that it comes across that we’re doing something wrong there. That’s my fault totally for not stopping it from happening."

"Maturity," said Tom Cable, the offensive line coach and assistant head coach who shares oversight of the offense. "More than anything, it’s maturity, and with maturity comes confidence. When they grow into it, they start to take ownership. The other part of that is they understand if we do it right together all the time, they see what happens."

Happy Friday, friends. We got a question about the productivity of Elvis Dumervil from a reader the other day, and along with Doc, I am coming off the other edge to help answer it. It’s hard to contain a rush that’s coming off of both sides.

The Seahawks scored on their first five possessions, including three rushing touchdowns by quarterback Russell Wilson, to take a 31-17 halftime lead. They then scored 16 points in the third quarter thanks to Ryan Fitzpatrick turnovers on three straight possessions. And then they ran a fake punt to set themselves up for a field goal that made them just the third team in NFL history to score at least 50 points in back to back weeks.

What it means: The Seahawks improved to 9-5, ensuring their first winning season since 2007. They strengthened their hold on a wild-card playoff berth, at least. This victory sets up a potentially pivotal Week 16 game against the NFC West-leading San Francisco 49ers. A 49ers defeat at New England in the Sunday night game would put first place on the line at CenturyLink Field next week. The Seahawks have won five of their past six games thanks largely to outstanding play from rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.

Wrap-up: Vikings 36, Rams 22 - NFC West Blog - ESPN
What it means: The Rams lost ground in the NFC West and NFC playoff picture while falling to 6-7-1. This was only the Rams' second defeat since Oct. 28, but it was a costly one. Home defeats against Christian Ponder (Vikings) and Mark Sanchez (New York Jets) could wind up keeping the Rams from the postseason in Jeff Fisher's first year as head coach.

Russell Wilson became the first NFL player ever to rush for three rushing touchdowns and one passing touchdown in the same half. He ran for a season-high 92 yards on nine carries. Running back Marshawn Lynch gained 113 yards on 10 carries, scoring on a 13-yard run in the third quarter. He has scored 28 rushing touchdowns since being traded to Seattle. Buffalo has rushed for 27 touchdowns as a team since he left.

Another absolute blowout for the Seahawks. Back to back games the offense broke the 50 barrier. That’s pretty rare. As with last week, the Seahawks could have probably reached 70 had they wanted to. Doing that at home when a team gives you 8 turnovers is one thing, doing it on the road is another thing entirely. Very tough not to be impressed with the Seahawks right now.

"I'm just thrilled that he's been able to continue to grow," Carroll said of Wilson, via The Associated Press. "For a time, we were just trying to get the offense going and not screw it up and make sure he could keep growing. Well, we're past that now."

NFP Sunday Blitz | National Football Post
*Golden Tate has been somewhat of an unsung hero in Seattle and is having his best season yet, and people with the team are not surprised. They say the wide receiver became humbled after some early struggles, and subsequently has become more of a pro. He has shown more discipline and is practicing and studying harder. It also has helped that Seahawks coaches have figured out how to best utilize him and now are playing him to his strengths in the routes they ask him to run.
