Hawks No Longer A Pushover Away From Home
On the verge of getting bounced out of Houston, the Seattle Seahawks delivered one of the best comebacks in team history. It was a gutty statement by the Seahawks in their 23-20 overtime win. Not only did Seattle reaffirm its position as the class of the NFC, but the Seahawks also displayed more evidence they are no longer pushovers away from home. Dating back to last season, the Seahawks have won five of their last six - including the playoffs - away from Seattle.
They have wins in Chicago, Washington, Carolina and now one of the biggest comebacks in franchise history in Houston. The 17-point comeback tied for the fourth-largest deficit Seattle has ever overcome to win. The Seahawks trailed by 14 midway through the fourth quarter before a pair of late touchdowns forced overtime.
Bennett Expected To Practice For Seahawks
Defensive lineman Michael Bennett is expected to be able to practice this week for the Seattle Seahawks after being carted off the field on a stretcher in Houston. Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Bennett has some soreness in his back, but was feeling better and should be cleared to practice on Wednesday. Carroll said Bennett was "really scared" but the team hopes he'll be able to play on Sunday at Indianapolis. Carroll also said that right tackle Breno Giacomini had minor knee surgery on Monday morning. Carroll said doctors believe Giacomini can return quickly from the surgery, which was to clean up some "loose bodies" in his knee. Carroll is still uncertain whether center Max Unger (triceps) will be able to go this week. Unger missed Sunday's game.
