The Seattle Seahawks are letting Russell Wilson cook so far in 2020, but who was playing chef on Sunday Night Football didn’t make the outcome of the Week 2 game against the New England Patriots any less stressful. The Hawks came away from the night with a 35-30 victory over Bill Belichick and the Patriots, allowing them to keep pace in the NFC West where three quarters of the division currently sits at 2-0.
There were several question marks for the team coming out the game however, including the injury status of both Bruce Irvin and Marquise Blair, both of whom suffered knee injuries during the win. Add those to the questions surrounding Rasheem Green, and the Seattle defense is already looking at potentially being short several names going forward, which made the question of whether safety Quandre Diggs could face a suspension for his hit on N’Keal Harry a topic of concern among Seahawks fans. However, according to a report from Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, that is not something over which Seattle fans need to fret.
#Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs won't face a suspension for the hit that got him ejected from last night's win over the #Patriots, I'm told. The play will be reviewed for a possible fine.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 21, 2020
That’s good news for Seattle going forward and for a secondary that has given up the second most passing yards of any defense in NFL history through the first two weeks of a season, with Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys coming to town in Week 3.
