Things are about to get a little crazy for 12s and the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle will play two games in five days next week, including one on Thanksgiving Day evening. If you haven't already told family and friends to plan on eating early, now might be the time.
Seattle will also face two NFC West rivals in those two days. In Week 11, the Seahawks will try to get payback against the Los Angeles Rams who beat Seattle in Week 1. Then on Thursday, Seattle will take on the San Francisco 49ers who Seattle currently shares the NFC West lead with. Neither game is likely to be an easy victory for Seattle.
The hope is that Seattle wins both games, of course, but getting one is a must. Seattle is 6-3 and 8-3 would look beautiful. 7-4 would look a lot better than 6-5. A week from now, we will know a lot more about the 2023 Seahawks. But here are some things we know right now.
Seattle Seahawks and Thanksgiving
Rookie Derick Hall didn't wait long to start giving back to the community. Heck, let's safely assume that Hall has been good deeds for a long time now. He and his One Percent Foundation recently held a Thanksgiving food drive in his hometown of Gulfport, Mississippi. The vent was held to help 350 needy families have food for a Thanksgiving celebration.
Hall got some help from Extend a Hand Help a Friend and Mississippi Power for the food drive. His One Percent Foundation was so named because as an infant Hall was given a one percent chance to live after the Seahawks linebacker was born premature. And even better, his mom was a big part of the food drive.
In other Thanksgiving-related news, the Seahawks announced this week that the halftime entertainment for the game against the 49ers will be Steve Aoki. Aoki is known for his high-energy and highly entertaining performances. He is not from Seattle, but if you happen to be at Lumen Field in Seattle on Thanksgiving, you should see a fantastic show at halftime (let's just hope that isn't the best part of the game for 12s).
