Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
Waiting to get their hands on the Lombardi Trophy, the Seahawks were surrounded by security guards in orange jackets. It was the first time anyone in that color stopped them all night.
“Percy is an atomic bomb,” Seattle receiver Ricardo Lockette said. “He is the ultimate weapon for our offense.”
With Seattle having just a handful of players listed on the injury report and with Denver in the double digits, things are looking good for the ‘Hawks.
As the players get ready for Super Bowl XLVIII, it’s not all about practice. On Wednesday, Seattle’s Phil Bates traded in his cleats for a microphone and spent 10 minutes harassing his teammates.
There’s a reason Seattle has won 16 of 17 at home. There’s a reason it hasn’t lost a home playoff game since 2004. There’s a reason Jim Harbaugh is winless in his last two trips to Seattle.
Just like in the regular season Percy Harvin’s return to the field in the postseason was short lived as Harvin will not be playing against San Francisco this weekend.
The 3 big names dealing with injuries heading into the NFC Championship Game could all play. The 49ers figure to have both Carlos Rogers and Will Tukuafu ready to go, while Seattle’s Percy Harvin is a big question mark and will remain so up until kickoff.
When Seattle traded for Percy Harvin during the offseason, they weren’t expecting to only have him for one game this season. Now that the Playoffs are set, it looks like Harvin may be able to return for Seattle’s next game.
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has endured a season that he would like to forget, and the former All-Pro defensive end will miss his third straight contest with an injured shoulder this week. The G-men also placed veteran running back Brandon Jacobs on injured reserve on Wednesday, ending his season. The visiting Seattle Seahawks will be missing starting linebacker K.J. Wright as they seek to cement the top seed in the NFC playoffs.
If the Giants wish to silence their critics, they must silence play-making threat Randall Cobb.
At the end of a long, difficult season, Brett Favre’s status for the finale is in doubt.
After the Vikings’ battered quarterback walked off the snow-coated field with what he later called a concussion, Jay Cutler and the Bears took back the division title Brett Favre is so used to winning.
The Minnesota Vikings have gone from “optimistic” to “hopeful” that Brett Favre will make his 298th consecutive regular season start on Sunday.
