After beginning 0–2, Seattle got its Week 7 bye with a 3–3 record. Things could hav been worse.
But the ‘Hawks start the second half of their season with the eyes on the playoffs in an unexpectedly open NFC. Seattle travels to Detroit to start it up.
The Hawks got some rest and relaxation over the weekend after beating up on Oakland a week ago to get back to .500 at 3–3.
Will Dissly is out for the season after emerging as one of Russell Wilson’s main targets to begin his rookie season. That has led to increased production from Tyler Lockett, who has played well after signing a lucrative three-year extension, and Doug Baldwin, who continues to get healthier each week.
The running game has also got even more use. Veterans Chris Carson and Mike Davis are both running for mid-4s yards per attempt. Rookie Rashaad Penny hasn’t matched that production but he did have one of his best games of the season against Oakland, running nine times for forty-three yards and catching a couple nice balls out of the backfield.
That three-headed monster will get tons of work in this game against a porous Detroit rush defense. A steady dose of handoffs should open things up for Wilson later in the game, deep to Lockett.
Detroit comes into this game 3–3 after a resounding win over Miami, 32–21. The story of the game was the Lions’ running game.
Matt Stafford was throwing the ball a ton early on this season but Jim Bob Cooter and Matt Patricia have made adjustments to take pressure off of Stafford and ease the opposing defense’s pass rush by leaning more on the running game.
That running game exploded on Sunday in Miami, where the Lions rushed for 248 yards, the most since 1997 in the Barry Sanders era.
Rookie Kerryon Johnson had over 150 of them, his finest performance to date in what has been a fine rookie season. LaGarrette Blount had fifty of his own.
As a result, Stafford went 18-for-22 with two touchdowns and no turnovers. Miami’s defense recorded just one sack.
So now what do you do if you’re Seattle? You know Detroit wants to establish the run, but load up on the line and Stafford can kill you through the air with all those talented receivers. Detroit is in a good place right now, if you ask me.

Detroit, looking like this, at home? The spread ought to be bigger, even if Seattle is off of a bye. I see at least fifty points in this one, too.
