Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Monday, December 13 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Seahawks 33, Texans 13
The Seahawks offense was out in full force on Sunday as the Seahawks collected a second consecutive win for the first time this season, defeating the Texans by a score of 33-13. The Hawks held just a three point lead heading into halftime, 16-13, but the defense pitched a second half shutout for the second straight week, allowing the Seahawks to coast to their easiest win of the season so far.
Rashaad Penny got the start at running back and had the best game of his young career, running for career-highs of 137 yards and two touchdowns. Russell Wilson finished the day with 260 passing yards and two touchdowns, with most of the damage done by Tyler Lockett (5 rec., 142 yards, one touchdown). Lockett's 142 yards give him 1,023 on the season, making him the first Seahawks receiver since the great Steve Largent to have three consecutive seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards.
