The Seattle Seahawks (4-2) are giving fans a blast from the past, and have their sights set on potentially entering November with the NFC West lead.
On throwback weekend at Lumen Field, the Seahawks host the Cleveland Browns (4-2) in a battle of two teams largely carried by the play of their defenses up to this point. Browns starting quarterback Deshaun Watson is out with a shoulder injury, so it’s PJ Walker's time for a second start and third appearance on the season. Kareem Hunt is the starting running back after injury to Jerome Ford, who himself replaced Nick Chubb. It’s a banged up offense for Cleveland, but they can generate points with Myles Garrett’s destructive ways on the defensive side of the ball.
Seattle’s offense began the year stumbling out of the gates against the Los Angeles Rams, then seemingly righted the ship with 30+ point showings in consecutive games against the Detroit Lions and Carolina Panthers, but they’ve now gone three straight weeks without scoring a 2nd half touchdown. The offensive line has been banged up and inconsistent, Geno Smith has had some recent troubles with turnovers, and the playcalling in the red zone has been questionable at times. It’s a great thing that the defense has stepped up and held the opposition to under 300 yards and under 20 points for three consecutive games, and Clint Hurtt’s group could be poised to do so again this week.
For all of the issues with the offense, if the Seahawks win and the San Francisco 49ers lose to the Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle will be in first place in the NFC West. That seemed like a pipe dream a couple of weeks ago, but now it’s very much a possibility.
And did I mention it’s throwback day?
