Seahawks you should keep an eye out for against the Bills in week 9
In the Seattle Seahawks upcoming matchup (Week 9), they take on another six win team in the Buffalo Bills. They take on their hardest opponent of the season that doesn’t reside in the same division as the Seahawks do.
If you’re watching the game, keep an eye out for these players as they could end up being a big factor in the outcome of the game.
To bolster their pass rush, the Seahawks acquired Carlos Dunlap from the Cincinnati Bengals for the price of B.J. Finney and a seventh-round pick.
As he wasn’t able to play in last week’s matchup due to the league’s COVID-19 rules, he will be on the field in a Seahawks jersey for the first time this week.
Dunlap has not lived up to his typical standards so far this season recording only 18 tackles (13 solo) with two of those going for loss along with four quarterback hits and just one sack.
His poor play though could be due to a lack of motivation. Dunlap repeatedly requested out of Cincinnati as he wanted to play for a contender which the Bengals are not.
In his first game with the Seahawks this week, he may be more motivated than ever to be on the field as he aims to win a Super Bowl ring. When Dunlap is on, he can be really good as he has the ability to be an impact defensive end.
Last week against the San Francisco 49ers, DeeJay Dallas rushed for 41 yards on 18 attempts with a rushing touchdown while catching all five of his targets for 17 yards and being found in the end zone.
Chris Carson has yet to practice this week and Carlos Hyde remains out with an injury. With Carson looking unlikely to play, Dallas may be thrust into the starter’s role again although he could share touches with Travis Homer.
If Dallas is given at least half a game’s worth of touches, will he be able to replicate what he did last week or at least come close to it?
