This is an important game for the Seahawks. At 4 -4, the Seahawks are in danger of falling out of the playoff race before it really gets going. A loss at home to yet another team in the wild card hunt and it could be all but over for this team. Luckily, the Seahawks are 3-0 at home, and have beaten some of the league’s best teams already at C-Link, so there shouldn’t be much reason to worry.
Seahawks Inactives: WR Braylon Edwards, S Winston Guy, CB Byron Maxwell, OT Mike Person, OG James Carpenter, DT Jason Jones, DT Jaye Howard.
The big names on this list are Jones, Edwards and Carpenter. All 3 get considerable playing time when healthy, and are a big part of what the Seahawks do on Sundays. Moffitt is back from just injury and will replace Carpenter. Jones will be replaced by Scruggs. Hopefully he can show more than he did last week, where he was mostly ineffective.
With Obomanu on IR now, and Edwards injured, the Seahawks are lacking the big target opposite Sydney Rice. Golden Tate will be getting his usual playing time at Split End, but the situational substitutions to help out in the red zone and on running downs wont be available this week.
Vikings inactives: McLeod Bethel-Thompson, Stephen Burton, Jarius WRight, Mistral Raymond, Audie Cole, Mark Asper, John Carlson
