Pete Carroll Blogs About Seahawks' Next Steps After Win Vs. Dallas

The head coach goes on to discuss how the Seahawks must approach this week, following a win, the same way they approached last week, following a loss.

The Seahawks host the Green Bay Packers next week in primetime on Monday Night Football. The Packers will be a tougher challenge than the Cowboys, and Carroll's advice to look ahead and treat every week the same will come in handy.
