Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Wednesday, December 26 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Carson Up For Weekly Honor
Chris Carson is one of three players around the league up for Ground Player of the Week at NFL.com following the running back's performance in this past Sunday's Seahawks win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Carson ran 27 times for 116 yards and two very physical touchdowns, a 4-yard run to the end zone to open the scoring in the first quarter and a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter that helped seal a 38-31 playoff-clinching win for Seattle. With his 116-yard effort, Carson became the first Seahawks running back to top 1,000 yards rushing in a single season since Marshawn Lynch in 2014.
"He’s had a great year," Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said of Carson following Sunday's win at CenturyLink Field. "I hope everybody just loves the way he plays. The touchdown run, I hadn’t seen it clearly enough, I just know what he did. I saw him start digging in with his feet, and I knew he was going to score and I started celebrating. He was just going to knock it in. His style and the toughness that he’s brought this team and representing the O-linemen and all the guys that have been a big part of the leadership. Chris has had a great year. So, it’s a great accomplishment. And, Chris hasn’t had that many years in the last 4 or 5 years where he’s been able to make it though and been healthy the whole time. If you remember, I told you guys, he was the most well-conditioned guy that showed up when we returned in April. There was nobody that was more fit. Nobody was more ready for the work. I don’t know how he did it, but he’s just unbelievable, that commitment that he has, and it carried through the whole season.”
For Ground Player of the Week, Carson is up against fellow running backs C.J. Anderson of the Los Angeles Rams and Sony Michel of the New England Patriots. Voting is open until 12 p.m. PT on Thursday, December 27 and fans can also vote on Twitter using a poll published by @NFL.
