DE Chris Clemons Wins NFC Defensive Player Of The Week Award

After his terrific play against the St. Louis Rams this past Sunday, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons won the NFC defensive player of the week award for week 11 of the NFL season.  

Clemons had a career high three sacks and two forced fumbles along with a deflected pass during Seattle's 24-7 victory on the road Sunday, finishing with five tackles on the day. Clemons had himself a big second half, recording his first sack of the day and first forced fumbled early in the third quarter inside the Rams 25 yard line. Clemons would come back with another two sacks in the fourth quarter. 

The Seahawks defense allowed a stingy 185 offensive yards against the Rams; 143 net passing and 42 net rushing yards. The Rams had only one rushing first down the entire game, and managed a meager 2.5 yards per carry. Clemons becomes only the third Seahawk ever to win the award, and first since Michael McCrary took the honor in week17 of the 1996 season.  The other was Jacob Green who won the award three times in his 12 year career with Seattle.

Marshawn Lynch Week 11 Fantasy Update

All of a sudden, it might not be the worst thing in the world to have a Seattle Seahawks running back in your backfield. Especially if he enjoys going Beast Mode.

Marshawn Lynch has been finding his way into the end zone, He managed to grind despite having few breakout runs (one of 12 yards) and still be effective this week, putting up 88 rushing yards on 27 rushes, including a crucial decisive touchdown in the third quarter. It wasn't his best performance, but it did continue a trend of Lynch managing to find the end zone. In the last six games that Lynch has played, he has scored a touchdown, and he's hit 80+ rushing yards on four of the last five occasions.

It's definitely a promising sign, and with three winnable home games upcoming against teams with losing records, he should be worth a potential start if you feel confident in his ability to keep on making those tough yards and staying healthy on the field.

Sidney Rice Week 11 Fantasy Update

The Seattle Seahawks had a limited offensive performance against the St. Louis Rams. Tarvaris Jackson threw two interceptions early and it looked as if Seattle wanted to stay committed to the ground much of the rest of the game Thus Jackson didn't really dish the football around, only throwing 14 completions on the day on 24 attempts.

Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice had a nice afternoon though.

Rice has been Jackson's main target, so he only got a few catches. But two came on the first Seattle scoring drive, and one was an important touchdown, so he probably provided you with some decent numbers.

However you're probably the most happiest with Rice's big moment on the first Seahawks play. Rice took the football in the field goal on what looked like an end-around to Jackson, but then went back to pass to find Mike Williams down the field for 55 yards. All in all, a nice performance for Rice in a somewhat marginal performance for Seattle.

Seahawks Vs. Rams By The Numbers: Marshawn Lynch And Mike Williams Aid In Seattle Victory

The Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams faced off on Sunday, and Seattle ended up coming away with the 24-7 victory. Their second win in a row.

After relying on the talented foot of Steven Hauschka in Week 10's upset over the Baltimore Ravens, the kicker was only called upon to boot one 19 yard field goal and two PATs.

The Seattle defense was able to effectively stop Rams rushers, whereas Marshawn Lynch led all running backs with 88 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. His average carry was only 3.3 yards, but he remained consistent throughout the game. Justin Forsett had the other rushing touchdown for Seattle, finishing with four carries for 31 yards.

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson finished the day 14-for-24 with 148 passing yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, which were the only two Seahawks turnovers. Leading Seattle receivers were Mike Williams, with 62 yards on two catches, Doug Baldwin with 60 yards on three catches and Sidney Rice with 35 yards on three catches and the only Seahawks receiving touchdown of the game.

Seahawks Vs. Rams Final Score: Seattle Turns To Their Defense To Beat St. Louis 24-7

The Seattle Seahawks won a fairly eventless contest with the St. Louis Rams in the Edwards Jones Dome, scoring 24 unanswered points to cruise to a 24-7 victory. Seattle took advantage of great field position on a Leon Washington put return to score their first touchdown, had a nice drive before halftime to give them their first lead, then utilized two St. Louis turnovers-- a Chris Clemons sack-fumble and a Red Bryant interception--to score the decisive 14 points.

This game is not going into the first cut of NFL Films. There were a combined 19 punts on Sunday afternoon and 18 penalties. Seattle didn't really need to do much offensively, needing to march a combined 86 yards on their three big scoring drives to score 21 points. But their defense played excellent, forcing three second half turnovers and holding Sam Bradford and St. Louis to 185 total yards and 42 yards on the ground. Their only touchdown came off a Tarvaris Jackson early interception deep in his own territory. But Jackson bounced back from the two early picks to complete 58% of his passes for 148 passing yards and a touchdown. Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett combined for 119 yards on the ground and two touchdowns to put it away.

Seahawks Vs. Rams Score: Seattle Uses St. Louis Turnovers To Go Up 24-7

If you're looking for offense, you've come to the wrong football game. Neither the Seattle Seahawks nor the St. Louis Rams have been able to do much in this second half. Each team has crossed midfield once in this one in the second half, and their drive stalled almost immediately after getting there.

There have been two big plays, and both of them have been St. Louis turnovers deep in their own territory. First defensive end Chris Clemons sacked Sam Bradford and defensive tackle Clinton McDonald scooped up the football. McDonald lost his grip on the football as he was trying to run with it, but cornerback Roy Lewis recover the ball himself.


Marshawn Lynch punched it into the end zone five plays later to give Seattle a ten point lead. Bradford then threw a highly-entertaining pick to Red Bryant in the fourth quarter deep on his side of the field. Justin Forsett scooted into the end zone on a 22 yard gain soon after to put Seattle in command position.

Seahawks Vs. Rams Score: Seattle Kicks Last Second FG, Holds 10-7 Lead Over St. Louis

The Seattle Seahawks are starting to churn out the yards on the St. Louis Rams. Seattle outgained St. Louis 169 to 94 yards and put up 9 first downs to four for the Rams. If not for the early two Seahawks turnovers, Seattle might be shutting out St. Louis.

Seattle took their first lead of the game behind a solid two minute drill, relying heavily on a Tarvaris Jackson connection with Doug Baldwin for 35 yards and a Marshawn Lynch 12 yard gain. The Rams committed a pass interference penalty on 3rd and 21 in the end zone, turning a tougher, longer field goal for Steven Hauschka into a 19 yard chip shot.

St. Louis managed an early decent drive into Seattle territory in the third quarter behind the passing of Sam Bradford (connecting with Stephen Jackson, Brandon Gibson and Brandon Lloyd) but the drive stalled and the Rams were forced to punt. The Seahawks did the same on their opening drive of the second half and the result of this game remains very much in doubt.

Seahawks Vs. Rams Score: Tarvaris Jackson Redeems Earlier Mistake, Ties Seattle With St. Louis 7-7

The St. Louis Rams and the Seattle Seahawks are battling in the cellar of the NFC West, and it's been fairly exciting in the Edward Jones Dome. Sidney Rice used a wide receiver pass on the first play to hit Mike Williams for 55 yards, but Rams linebacker Chris Chamberlain ended the drive when he picked off a Tarvaris Jackson pass. The Rams punted on the subsequent drive, but Jackson threw another pick to Quintin Mikell. Sam Bradford then hit Brandon Lloyd for 30 yards to give St. Louis an early 7-0 lead.

Seattle didn't strike back until early in the second quarter. Leon Washington returned a punt 25 yards, and then Tarvaris Jackson hit Sidney Rice twice for 12 and 14 yards to put Seattle in a tie midway in the first half. The Rams and Seahawks are looking like they'll be in a close one early on.

Seahawks vs. Rams inactives: Deon Butler Out Again For Seattle

The Seattle Seahawks are ready to take on the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome in the Rome of the West, and will be relatively healthy in doing so as very few starters won’t be suiting up this Sunday.

Wide receiver Dion Branch and tackle Jarriel King will be out for the Seahawks, as will backup QB Josh Portis. Safety Atari Bigby, corback Ron Parker, and defensive tackle James Carpenter will all be out as well.

As for the Rams, running back Cadillac Williams and wide receiver Danario Alexander will be out, as well as linebacker Ben Leber.

Seahawks inactives: QB Josh Portis, WR Deon Butler, T Jarriel King, T James Carpenter, DT Anthony Hargrove, CB Ron Parker, S Atari Bigby

Rams inactives: WR Danario Alexander, RB Cadillac Williams, T Jason Smith, CB Nate Ness, LB Justin Cole, LB Ben Leber, DT Darell Scott #NFL

Fantasy Football Projection: Start Marshawn Lynch

The Seattle Seahawks are brimming with confidence after taking out the Baltimore Ravens last week, and now must turn their focus to their NFC West rival St. Louis Rams. One of the keys to their success is the run game, most notably Marshawn Lynch, who according to numberfire.com will have himself a decent enough a game to garner a start this wek for your fantasy squad. 

Numberfire currently has him projected to earn 13.45 points this Sunday, gaining around 85 yards on 18 carries along with a couple of receptions, with a 0.7 TD percentage, which essentially means he has a 2/3 chance at scoring a touchdown. The Rams defense isn't exactly strangling opposing team's running backs as they currently sit dead last in rushing yards allowed at around 150 a game, which bodes well for Pete Carroll's boys. 

With the inconsistency of Tarvaris Jackson, I'd look for Marshawn to be very involved in the offense today, and should be a go in most leagues depending on your matchup.

Seahawks Vs Rams: St. Louis Faces Injury Issues Of Their Own

The Seahawks faced some terrible news this week when they lost starting right guard John Moffitt and right tackle James Carpenter for the season to knee injuries. Naturally, this news came as a big blow to the team and the newly established run game. Their opponent and divisional rival Rams this week are facing similar injury issues as well as they lost their starting left tackle Rodger Saffold on Friday to a severe pectoral injury.

Saffold injured his pec lifting weights this morning and will now face surgery, and is lost for the season. The Rams are also without starting right tackle Jason Smith, suffering from concussion issues, and even when healthy Smith hasn't been playing especially well despite being chosen 2nd overall in the 2009 draft. 

In addition to these injuries, their franchise QB Sam Bradford is fighting injuries, and NINE cornerbacks on the Rams roster have been placed on IR this season or released. Yes, the Seahawks injuries hurt, badly, but they're certainly not the worst in the NFL.

Seahawks Injury Report: Atari Bigby, Anthony Hargrove Questionable; Rams Will Be Without Starting Tackles

The Seahawks released their Friday injury report and there's no surprise that James Carpenter has been listed as out after tearing his ACL on Wednesday at practice. He'll show up on the injury reports until being placed on the I.R., but past him the Seahawks are looking good with the rest of their active players.

Safety Atari Bigby and DE/DT Anthony Hargrove are both listed as questionable with hamstring issues. Bigby and Hargrove are both roles players for the team but if forced to miss time won't significantly disrupt the Seahawks gameplan. 

As I told you earlier, Kam Chancellor, Doug Baldwin, and Sidney Rice are all 'good to go,' per Pete Carroll and despite being listed as probable, will play. Also listed as probable are QB Tarvaris Jackson, LB David Vobora, and TE Cameron Morrah. Jackson has been on the injury report for several weeks now with a severely strained pectoral muscle but shoul be able to continue to play through the pain. Vobora is a key special teamer that had battled a concussion, and Cameron Morrah has been struggling to stay healthy after coming off the PUP list a few weeks ago. Morrah's role in the offense should be something to watch this weekend. 

On the Rams side of things, their major hit comes on the offensive line, where several sources have reported that OT Rodger Saffold has a significant chest injury and may need surgery, meaning backup left tackle Mark LeVoir will get the start. The Rams are already without their starting right tackle, Jason Smith, due to concussion issues. Seahawks defensive ends Raheem Brock and Chris Clemons just perked up a little bit.

Seahawks Injury Update: Pete Carroll Says Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin, and Kam Chancellor Will Play

Good news on the injury front for the Seahawks this week as Pete Carroll announced that all three players that suffered concussions in last week's game against the Ravens, will play this week against St. Louis.

Pete Carroll said all the concussed players--Rice, Baldwin and Chancellor--are "ready to go." #seahawks
Nov 18 via TweetDeckFavoriteRetweetReply

 

With Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin, and Kam Chancellor all ready to play on Sunday, the Seahawks will be with three starters and major contributors whose statuses had been previously up in the air. Chancellor is having a pro-bowl caliber year at strong safety for the Seahawks and Baldwin and Rice are the Seahawks two leading receivers. 

You can now let out a big sigh of relief. I'll follow up with the rest of the official injury report when it's released.

Seattle Seahawks Injury Update: James Carpenter Tears ACL, Ending His Season

The Seattle Seahawks are probably going to have issues in the run game now that right tackle John Moffitt is out for the rest of the season. Those offensive issues don't get any easier as right guard James Carpenter will join him. Carpenter tore his ACL during practice earlier this week and will now miss the remainder of the season. Breno Giacomini is slated to take Carpenter's place.

It's hard not to see the Seahawks offense taking a few steps back. Both Tarvaris Jackson and Marshawn Lynch have been progressively enjoying more success as the season's wore on as both the rookies Moffitt and Carpenter have adjusted to their new roles. With them gone and guys like Giacomini and Paul McQuistan in their place, you should expect to see the Seahawks struggle to try and pass protect Jackson and keep the run game working. Tough situation for Seattle, who finally looked like it was hitting its groove.

Seattle Seahawks Injury Update: James Carpenter Hurts Knee

The Seattle Seahawks have already lost one offensive lineman on the right side. They might be on the verge of losing another.

John Moffitt is out for the season and will be replaced by Paul McQuistan at right tackle. Now right guard James Carpenter went down after practice and was taken off the field with an apparent knee injury. Breno Giacomini is slated to replace Carpenter if the injury requires a lot of time off.

Both Carpenter and Moffitt have shown gradual improvement this season as run blockers in their rookie year and were part of the supposed Seattle youth movement that would get the Seahawks offense moving again. Indeed, Tarvaris Jackson has not been hurried and pressured as much as expected and has done a decent enough job. Marshawn Lynch has had some solid games, including a strong effort against the Ravens. Seattle might be forced to go back to the drawing board to find ways to keep the offense moving.

Seahawks Vs. Rams Announcers: Chris Myers, Tim Ryan For FOX

The Seattle Seahawks and the St. Louis Rams face off in a matchup of NFC West rivals that don't involve the San Francisco 49ers. This means that this game isn't likely to be highly intriguing to most of the country, which is why a lower-level team like Chris Myers and Tim Ryan will be the guys who will be covering this game.

Neither the Seahawks nor the Rams are likely to contend for the NFC West crown this season as the 49ers are well on their way to winning the division, and the wild card is probably out of reach for either team with put teams three to four games under .500. Seattle still can try and keep their hopes alive with a win here, but it's clear to see why FOX would consider this game as a low priority and would send one of their lower-ranked announcing teams to cover this contest.
