Here are some links to some interesting stories that circulated around the web after Sunday’s 41-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
From NFL.com: The Seahawks control their own destiny now.
Thanks to the best start in franchise history, Seattle has a 1 1/2-game lead over the New Orleans Saints – a team it will host in a Dec. 2 Monday night game – in the race for the NFC’s top playoff seed. That’s especially significant given that Seattle, with 13 consecutive victories at CenturyLink (a stadium in which Wilson has never lost), might possess the league’s most formidable home-field advantage, though the Saints arguably rank a close second.
From ESPN.com: Percy Harvin nagged Pete Carroll to get in on a kickoff return on Sunday.
In his debut game with the Seahawks (a 41-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings), Harvin wanted to return kickoffs against his former team. Carroll wanted him to wait one more game.
From SI.com: Harvin showed flashes of brilliance and what is to come.
Harvin lined up on the inside of a three-receiver set to the right, slipped past press coverage on a crossing route and, despite having cornerback Chris Cook in tight coverage, leaped and made a one-handed catch for 17 yards to extend a drive that would eventually end in a Seahawks touchdown.
