Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Monday, January 10 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Seahawks 38, Cardinals 30
The Seahawks ended their season in style on Sunday, earning a 38-30 road win to prevent the playoff-bound Arizona Cardinals from winning the NFC West crown.
Rashaad Penny exploded for his fourth 100-yard game in the past five outings, finishing the afternoon with a career-high 190 yards, capped off by a career-long 62-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Tyler Lockett caught two touchdown passes from Russell Wilson, as Wilson joined Peyton Manning as the only two quarterbacks to record 3,000 passing yards and 20 touchdowns in each of their first 10 seasons.
Defensively, Carlos Dunlap II continued his recent hot streak with 2.0 of the team's 5 sacks on the afternoon. Jordyn Brooks finished the game with a career-high 20 tackles, tying Bobby Wagner’s franchise record for tackles in a game which was set in Week 2 against the Titans. Brooks' 183 total tackles are also a franchise record, and good for second-most in the NFL.
