Jason Myers Goes 1-For-2 In Final Game

Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers unfortunately saw his streak come to an end as he pushed his last field goal try of the season wide right. Myers was called on to try to drill a 50-yarder off the frozen tundra, but the kick drifted right the whole way. Overall, Myers made 82% of his field... Read More

Shaquem Griffin Records First Sack Of His Career

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Shaquem Griffin couldn't have scripted it any better. On third down of a playoff game in Lambeau Field, Griffin made a beautiful sprint around some traffic and up the gut of the offense to sack Aaron Rodgers.

Malik Turner Drops Huge Pass In Return

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Malik Turner made it back to the field on Sunday night after missing last week's game with a concussion, but he didn't catch any passes.

Jacob Hollister Misses Critical Block

Seattle Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister didn't have a bad game for the first 56 minutes of Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Packers, but one big slip-up at the end sealed the deal for Seattle. Hollister, who was far more known for his blocking than his offense prior to this season, was charged with... Read More

D.K. Metcalf Solid In Divisional Round Loss

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was going to be hard-pressed to improve on last week's blistering performance in Philadelphia, but he still put up a solid game in the Seahawks loss. Metcalf was only targeted five times on the night, and while he caught four of the passes, he wasn't able to break any... Read More

Tyler Lockett Huge Against Green Bay

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett has clearly been Russell Wilson's favorite target this season, and he ruled the roost on Sunday night when he hauled in nine passes for 136 yards and a touchdown.

Travis Homer Makes Big Catches

Seattle Seahawks running back Travis Homer didn't really get many opportunities to carry the ball on Sunday, but he made a couple huge catches. Homer only carried the ball three times even though he was able to rack up 13 yards, but he played a more critical role by snagging a couple balls out of... Read More

Marshawn Lynch Smashes His Way To Two Touchdowns

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch certainly gave fans a couple more moments to remember when he bashed and crashed his way into the end zone twice in Seattle's loss to Green Bay on Sunday night. The Seahawks running game wasn't very impressive by yardage, especially if Russell Wilson's scrambles were removed, but Lynch made... Read More

Russell Wilson Falls Short In Comeback Attempt

A rough first half left Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his squad in a 21-3 hole as they came out from halftime. Wilson would then lead them on a fantastic charge back to bring the game to a five-point deficit, but an ugly dropped pass late in the fourth quarter left Seattle lacking. Wilson... Read More

Jason Myers Visits Green Bay For The First Time

Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers has certainly kicked against the Packers multiple times in the past, but he's never done it on the frozen tundra.

Jacob Hollister Unlikely To Have A Good Day

Seattle Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister has been a surprise contributor this season, but he's probably going to spend more time as a blocker than receiver this weekend. Green Bay has been above average against opposing tight ends all season, but they've really stepped it up recently and have been the harshest defense in the... Read More

David Moore Likely To Lose Chances

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore was instrumental in Seattle's win in Philly last week, but he'll likely fall out of the regular rotation now that Malik Turner and Jaron Brown are back. Moore split time equally with the other two, racking up 17 catches during the regular season while Brown caught 16 and Turner... Read More

Tyler Lockett Will Likely See Plenty Of Chances

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett has been Russell Wilson's go-to receiver all year, and fantasy owners should expect that to play a big role on Sunday.

D.K. Metcalf Could Do It Again

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was the star of the show last week when he hung 160 yards on the Philadelphia Eagles in his first playoff game.

Marshawn Lynch Is A Strong TD Threat

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has given the people what they want so far, racking up touchdowns in both games since he returned to the team.

Travis Homer Will Need To Have A Big Game

Seattle Seahawks running back Travis Homer struggled in last week's game against the Eagles, but he's probably going to be a critical weapon in Seattle's game against Green Bay this Sunday.

Russell Wilson Facing An Uphill Battle

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has faced a few stingy defenses this year, and so far he's won more of those games than he's lost. This week, he'll face another strong passing defense, and if he's going to win, he's going to have to do it in one of the toughest places in the league.... Read More

Jason Myers Bounces Back After Block

Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers got off to a rough start on Sunday in Philadelphia when his first attempted field goal of the game was blocked.

Jadeveon Clowney Leads Seahawks Defense To Win

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was critical in the Seahawks Defense preventing Philadelphia from scoring a single touchdown in Seattle's win on Sunday.

Jacob Hollister Has A Rough Day In Philly

Seattle Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister had one of the worst games of his career on Sunday. It wasn't just that Hollister only caught two passes for a total of 16 yards.

David Moore Comes Up Huge For Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore didn't set any records like his teammate D.K. Metcalf did, but he played a huge role in Sunday's win against the Eagles. First, while working as the team's punt returner, Moore made a fair catch on Philly's first punt. However, the Eagles' gunner apparently completely missed it, and he... Read More

Marshawn Lynch Bashes In Another TD

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch didn't put up a run worthy of decades of highlight reels again, but handshakes were all around as Lynch battered his way through a handful of defenders to plunge his way into the end zone from five yards out.

Travis Homer Struggles In First Playoff Action

Seattle Seahawks running back Travis Homer gave everyone some excitement last week when it looked like he might be able to handle the primary role in the backfield for the Seahawks, but Sunday's game will make everyone think twice.

Tyler Lockett Plays A Strong Second Fiddle

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett isn't the one getting all the headlines following Sunday night's win over the Eagles, but he put up a fine performance.

D.K. Metcalf Shines On The Big Stage

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf showed he was bigger than the moment on Sunday night when he roasted the Eagles in his first career playoff game.

Russell Wilson Throws For 325 Yards In Win

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson didn't have the best game of his career on Sunday night in Philadelphia, but he made the throws that he needed to make when he needed to make them.

Jason Myers May Be Critical To Victory

Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers was perfect the last time he kicked in Philly, drilling a short field goal and a pair of extra points.

D.K. Metcalf Has Chance For Redemption

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf will get his first crack at the playoffs on Sunday when Seattle visits the Philadelphia Eagles for the second time this season. In blustery, rainy conditions the first time around, Metcalf had an ugly drop on a touchdown pass that hit him directly in the hands. Seattle would hang... Read More

David Moore Could Play A Big Role

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore could end up being one of the team's key components in Sunday's playoff game. With Malik Turner out and Jaron Brown questionable, Moore will be the team's clear-cut No. 3 receiver. Facing a defense that regularly removes tight ends, Moore could be tasked with picking up some of the... Read More
