The Seattle Seahawks will host the Cleveland Browns at Lumen Field on Sunday, looking to keep pace early in the NFC playoff race while facing off against one of the most talented defenses in the NFL. So, while the Seattle offensive line will be tasked with trying to slow down Myles Garrett, the Seahawks defense will be without Uchenna Nwosu, while reportedly having the recently signed Frank Clark on the field in classic throwback uniforms.

And now it’s on to the Browns in Week 8 and the trade deadline Tuesday at 4pm New York time.
