A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about the Seattle Seahawks.

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Monday, September 12 — about your Seattle Seahawks following yesterday's 12-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins in the first regular season game of 2016.

What They're Saying: Seahawks 12, Dolphins 10 digital media reporter John Boyle shared his rapid reaction to the game, with thoughts on Seattle's defense, Cassius Marsh's performance, the running game and more.

Russell Wilson sustained an ankle injury in yesterday’s game, but noted afterwards he'll be fine after treatment, ice and prayer. Head coach Pete Carroll provided an update about Wilson's status this morning.

Wilson and wide receiver Doug Baldwin were in the zone.

Here are 10 key numbers from Sunday's game.

Peter King of TheMMQB pointed out an interesting tidbit about Wilson's performance yesterday.

Over at, Chris Wesseling posted his five takeaways from the game, with notes on Marsh and Frank Clark, Pete Carroll and more.

Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times delivered his grades for the game.

K.J. Wright and Baldwin made Jon Gruden's "All-Grinders" team (ESPN Insider Access is required to read the full article).

Gruden on Wright:

I've seen Wright play every linebacker position there is to play. He has incredible size and surprising coverage ability, while also consistently tackling well.

On Baldwin:

Baldwin is meaner than a junkyard dog. He will chew your face off. This is an undrafted player who gets it done on any down, in any situation, and he can be a returner if you need him to be one.

And lastly, Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports praised Baldwin for his performance.

Tweet Of The Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from rookie defensive back Tyvis Powell, who was active yesterday for his first NFL regular season game as a Seahawk.
