309: Seahawks at the top of the NFC, Antonio Brown linked to Seattle again
The Seattle Seahawks are coming off of their bye week. This past week, two games in particular worked out very well for Seattle. The 49ers beat the Rams, which put some room between LA and the Seahawks in the NFC West standings. The Green Bay Packers also lost, which put Seattle at the top of the NFC. They now go on to face the Arizona Cardinals on a weekend that the final two undefeated AFC teams play.
The matchup with the Cardinals was supposed to be a chance to see how Jordyn Brooks and Jamal Adams could offer the dynamic the Seahawks wanted to match up against the NFC West. That may have to wait, but Snacks Harrison and Mychal Kendricks could be on the field for the first time in 2020. The 5-0 start for the Seahawks means that Russell Wilson has now had a five-game win streak in six of his nine seasons in the NFL. Looking at his attempts per game, it has been a steady increase from the first streak in 2012 to the current streak in 2020.
In the second half of the show, we talk about the decision to keep fans out of the stadium until late November. We also discuss the importance of making sure we are accountable to our superstitions, after too many Floridians trimmed their beards leading to the benching of Ryan Fitzpatrick. Congratulations to The Jordyn Brookings Institution, the Week 6 pick'em winner.
