317: An A minus for the 2nd-biggest blowout of the Pete Carroll era
We all remember the biggest blowout of the Pete Carroll era. The 58-0 win over the Arizona Cardinals back in 2012 was one of a string of performances by Seattle leading up to the playoffs in Russell Wilson's rookie season where everything was clicking for the team. Sandwiched between that game and the Super Bowl 48 victory is the latest win over the New York Jets. Should the Seahawks get credit for beating a team they were expected to easily defeat? We recognize some of the biggest performances on defense as well as Jamal Adams record-setting sack.
Russell Wilson looked much better against the Jets than he had in previous weeks, but now the Seahawks offensive line is facing one of it's biggest tests of the season with the defensive line of the Washington Football Team. Second overall pick Chase Young is coming off a game where he recovered a fumble for a touchdown. He's one of a few pass rushers Russ will have to worry about this week. One piece of news to watch will be if Alex Smith will be able to bounce back from his injured calf this week in time for Sunday.
With a win against Washington, the Seahawks can clinch a playoff berth before facing two of their division rivals in the final two weeks. We discuss why it's critical for the Seahawks to, at the very least, earn a division title this season. Jeremy calls in with a new trivia question and breaks down some of the top career rushing leaders from the wide receiver position.
