DT Jordan Hill

This could be a breakout opportunity for Hill. He saw increased snaps against the Bears after Brandon Mebane tweaked his groin, and Mebane’s status for Monday is uncertain. Expect Hill to start, or at least play a significant amount. The Lions have been pathetic at running the ball, and that may even be too kind. They average only 45 yards rushing….. PER GAME. If the Seahawks can get the lead and force Detroit to throw, Hill can do what he does best; penetrate from the interior. I could see a sack, a couple tackles for loss, and maybe a forced fumble for #97.
