NFL Power Rankings: Seahawks Are Rising After Big Win

The Seahawks are moving up in the Week 3 NFL Power Rankings.


Cowboys Expect Seahawks WR Golden Tate To Be Fined For Hit

No doubt you saw it, live or on highlight shows: Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate absolutely de-cleating Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee during a Russell Wilson run on Sunday, in the Seahawks 27-7 win.

Tate led with the helmet into Lee's chin and sent him sprawling into next week. It was big a blow-up, in football terms, as any ever seen.


Well, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones feels Tate will get fined for the hit, even though it was not flagged for a penalty during the game. Jones had this to say:

"That's certainly something we know or expect penalties and fines about. They didn't see the helmet hit or they would have called it."

Tate celebrated his big wallop; Lee was able to return to the game and dismissed it. Losing money is never a good thing in the non-guaranteed contract world of the NFL, but Tate will probably accept any fine he faces with a smile and a feeling that it was worth it just to lay out an opposing linebacker who is bigger.

Talk about Tate with Seahawk fans at Field Gulls and with Cowboys fans at Blogging The Boys.


Cowboys Vs. Seahawks 2012: A Long Way To Travel For Dallas To Lose

The Seattle Seahawks made quick work of the Dallas Cowboys Sunday at CenturyLink Field, and SB Nation Seattle's Joey Rebbe broke it down into reasons the Seahawks won the game.

Ultimately, given Seattle's focus on running the ball and utilizing the short passing game, winning time of possession with Russell Wilson at the helm is an achievable goal.

Danny Kelly at Field Gulls, the SB Nation Seahawks blog, focused on the power of the running game with "Beast Mode," Marshawn Lynch, and the limiting of Russell Wilson to 20 pass attempts.

On the flip side, KD Drummond of Blogging the Boys was succint with his assessment of the Cowboys' long trip to the Northwest to get crushed.

Thoughts that we just aren't any better than the .500 team that ended last season? Now, plausible. The Cowboys took a trip to the Pacific Northwest and got their rears kicked, 27-7.

It's a tough crowd down in the Big D.

Cowboys Vs. Seahawks Final Score: Seattle's Fundamentals Shine In 27-7 Romping Of Cowboys

Special teams turnovers set the tone of the game between the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys. Seattle managed a 10-0 lead in the first five minutes of play and wouldn't relinquish it throughout, finishing with a 27-7 win.

Dallas cleaned up its act after three first quarter turnovers (kickoff fumble, blocked punt and a Tony Romo interception), but dropped passes and a lethargic running game kept them from ever mounting a comeback. Romo was forced to throw a total of 40 passes on the day, while DeMarco Murray only managed 44 rushing yards off of 12 carries.

Russell Wilson was effective in his second career start for the Seahawks, though he didn't put up big numbers. He passed for 151 yards and one touchdown. Coming into this game, everyone knew Marshawn Lynch would need to play big for Seattle to walk away with a 1-1 record, and he came through. Lynch carried the ball 26 times for 122 yards and one touchdown.

Next week, the Seahawks will get the spotlight with a Monday Night Football showdown against the Green Bay Packers, while the Cowboys will try and get back in the win column against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Russell Okung Injury: Major Knee Injury Avoided, According To Report

Seattle Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung has reportedly dodged a bullet with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals, according Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

La Canfora is reporting that Okung's ailment is merely a bone bruise with no ligament damage, which should be music to Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson's ears. While injuries of this nature can be quite painful, it appears likely that Okung will be ready to protect to rookie signal caller's blindside from DeMarcus Ware next weekend against the Dallas Cowboys at home.

Okung went down on Seattle's final drive of the game against Arizona and didn't return after limping off the field.

Frank Omiyale is expected to start for the Seahawks if Okung is somehow unable to go, as the eight-year journeyman is listed as the primary backup for both tackle positions.
