Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Thursday, January 12 — about your Seattle Seahawks
Jason Myers Named To Two All-Pro Teams
Through a rollercoaster 18-week season, the 9-8 Seahawks relied on several players at all-three phases of the game to help them earn a playoff berth. After kicking the game-winner in Seattle's Week 18 win over the Rams, Myers was named to a pair of All-Pro teams, including the first NFLPA Players’ All-Pro team that was selected by player vote. NFL.com’s Nick Shook also named Myers his top kicker.
Year 8 will go down as a historic one for Myers, as field goal No. 34 to secure Seattle's 19-16 Week 18 win over the Rams set a career-high for makes in a year. From Weeks 5-13, Myers didn't miss a field goal attempt (21-21). Myers finished the year a perfect 6-6 on attempts of 50 yards or more, and he led the NFL in scoring with 143 points, the last three of which helped send the Seahawks to the playoffs. Nick Shook of Around the NFL breaks down Myers' inclusion on the list - and who he knocked off.

It's rare thatJustin Tuckerdoesn't command this spot, but with the Ravens' stalwart missing six field-goal tries, it's time for a change. Myers led all kickers in scoring with 143 points, besting Tucker by one point while also making 34 of 37 field-goal attempts and 41 of 42 extra-point tries. Myers nailed all six of his 50-plus-yard attempts and converted 4 of 6 attempts between 40 and 49 yards. His miss at the end of regulation in Week 18 nearly cost the Seahawks a playoff berth, but he redeemed himself by drilling a second attempt in overtime. That's how you cap off an All-Pro season.
In December, Myers was announced as one-of-four Seattle players to earn Pro Bowl honors. Saturday's NFC Wild Card matchup against the San Francisco 49ers will be Myers' fourth playoff-appearance as a Seahawk since joining the team in 2019. In the third contest of the season between the divisional foes, every point counts - and Seattle will rely on Myers to come through as he's done all year.
