Seattle Puts It All Together In Rout Of Atlanta
Questioned after two lackluster performances, the Seattle Seahawks gave a resounding argument why they are the best team in the NFC at 9-1. Their 33-10 rout of Atlanta on Sunday featured a dynamic offense led by Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch and an improved defensive effort after two weeks of struggling to stop the run.
And Seattle put together its most complete game of the season minus five expected starters who all could be back this week against Minnesota. Offensive linemen Max Unger, Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini, defensive end Red Bryant and wide receiver Percy Harvin could all play Sunday against the Vikings. The only troubling news to come out of the blowout over Atlanta was a groin injury suffered by cornerback Brandon Browner.
Harvin Officially Activated To Seattle's Roster
The Seattle Seahawks have added wide receiver Percy Harvin to the 53-man roster. Monday's move was expected as Seattle had to add Harvin to the active roster or he would have to remain on the physically unable to perform list for the remainder of the season. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Harvin is expected to practice this week, meaning his Seahawks debut could come Sunday against Minnesota. If he's not ready, Harvin could be inactive on game day and his debut could come after the Seahawks' bye week when Seattle hosts New Orleans on Dec. 2. The Seahawks announced Harvin had returned to practice on Oct. 21. Seattle released defensive tackle Michael Brooks to clear a roster spot for Harvin.
