Seahawks Reward Linebacker K.J. Wright with Four-Year Extension

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(RENTON, Wash.) -- The Seattle Seahawks have locked up another key member of their dominant defense. ESPN reports they've rewarded linebacker K.J. Wright with a four-year extension, worth $27 million.

Since the team drafted him in the fourth round back in 2011, Wright has emerged as a fantastic defensive player who's a key member of the team's top-ranked defense.

"In the offseason, we identified K.J. as one of our core players moving forward and aimed to keep him as a part of the Seahawks family for a long time," general manager John Schneider said in a statement. "The timing of this signing gives us the ability to keep as many of our core players together as we possibly can. Since Day 1, K.J. has been a true professional in his daily approach and we are excited for K.J., his family and the 12s to keep him in the organization."

In 14 games this season, Wright has 96 tackles, two away from tying a career-high. He has started all three linebacker spots for the team as well.

Seattle Preys On Philadelphia

Seattle Preys On Philadelphia

Kevin Casey/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA, Pa.) -- The Seattle Seahawks are peaking once again as the regular season enters its final month.

Sunday, the defending Super Bowl Champions grounded the high flying Philadelphia Eagles with a 24-14 victory.

Russell Wilson was on his game beating Philadelphia through the air and on the ground. Wilson ran for a touchdown as well as completing 22 of 37 passes for 263 yards and a pair of touchdowns to Marshawn Lynch and Doug Baldwin.

Seattle's Legion of Boom defense befuddled Mark Sanchez and the Eagles all evening. The Eagles signal caller continued his yo-yo like performance as this week he completed 10 of 20 passes for 96 yards. He also threw an interception and was sacked three times.

The Seahawks now enter a three game divisional slate to end their season.  They host a reeling 49ers team next week as part of a stretch that will likely determine the winner of the NFC West.

Seattle Stymies San Francisco

Seattle Stymies San Francisco

Steve Dykes/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO, Ca.) -- The Seattle Seahawks defeated the San Francisco 49ers 19-3 Thursday with a dominating defensive effort.

Cornerback Richard Sherman reasserted himself as he intercepted Colin Kaepernick twice and could have had a third if not for a drop.

"The second one was pretty entertaining," Sherman said. "I was laughing the whole time because I told their sideline 'if they throw it my way, I'd end the game.'" 

Quarterback Russell Wilson was efficient, completing crisp passes and methodically moving the ball against the 49ers.  He completed 15 of 22 passes for 236 yards. Wilson also completed the only touchdown of the game to running back Robert Turbin who took the ball in from 13 yards out.

The Seahawks are now 8-4 and appear to be returning to the form that led them to a championship run last season. 

"These guys have really joined together and really recaptured what it was that we played with last year," said head coach Pete Carroll. "It took us some time to figure it out, but we have.

For the second straight week the Seahawks have defeated a division opponent by the score of 19-3. They beat up on the previously 9-1 Arizona Cardinals who were under the charge of new starting quarterback Drew Stanton.

"There is no question, in the last two weeks that we have elevated our game," Carroll said.

Rams Surprise Seahawks

Rams Surprise Seahawks

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- The St. Louis Rams pulled out all the stops to beat their division rival Seattle Seahawks with crafty special teams play in a 28-26 win on Sunday.

Stedman Bailey fooled everyone on a 90-yard fake punt return and Benny Cunningham's 75-yard kickoff return on a squibbed kick that rolled into the end zone in the second quarter put the Rams up 21-3.

The Rams would not be done though, Cunningham's 18-yard reception from kicker Johnny Hekker late in the fourth quarter extended a drive and a late fumble recovery closed the game out.

"It was great execution by them on a couple different scenarios," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. "It made a huge difference in this game."

The Seahawks have now lost back-to-back games and sit at 3-3.

"Grateful for the effort, an entire team effort," Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said.  "That's a really good football team and that's an understatement."

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 313 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.

"We have a team that's full of fighters," Wilson said.  "There's nothing better than having your backs against the wall.  That's where we're at right now.  You just play 1-0 and try and focus on what you can control."

Cowboys Quiet 12th Man, Beat Seahawks, 30-23

Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(SEATTLE) -- The Dallas Cowboys (5-1) knocked off the defending champion Seattle Seahawks (3-2) in front of the 12th man in Seattle on Sunday.

Wilson's last throw intended for Luke Wilson was picked off by Rolando McClain to put the Cowboys' win in the books.

Tony Romo passed for 250 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions and Murray rushed for 115 yards and a touchdown in the victory.

The Cowboys defense held Wilson and the Seahawks offense to 80 rushing yards, 126 passing yards, and a Wilson rushing touchdown.

Seahawks Get Past Redskins, 27-17 on “Monday Night Football”

Kevin Casey/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- Although the final score didn't fully indicate it, the Seattle Seahawks were able to easily put away the Washington Redskins, 27-17 on Monday night.

Despite the win, it was a frustrating night for Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin, who had three touchdowns called back due to penalties.

"Well, the first one I was cool with," he said. "I was like, 'OK.' Then when the second one happened, I was like, 'Wow.' And then when the third one happened I just flipped my hands down. I couldn't believe it."

Seattle had 13 penalties for 90 yards, but were still able to pull out the win.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had a memorable night as he completed 18 of 24 passes for 201 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. He also rushed for 122 yards on 11 carries and added a touchdown on the ground in the win.

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins rebounded from a rough game start against the New York Giants on Sept. 25 as he threw for 283 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson also had a big game for Washington as he caught five passes for 157 yards and a touchdown.

Seattle improved to 3-1 while Washington fell to 1-4.

Seahawks Win Super Bowl Rematch in Overtime

Seahawks Win Super Bowl Rematch in Overtime

Jay Drowns/Getty Images(SEATTLE) -- Marshawn Lynch scored on a six-yard touchdown run on the first drive in overtime, giving the Seattle Seahawks a 26-20 win over Denver in a rematch of Super Bowl 48.

Lynch capped off an 80-yard drive that denied the Broncos (2-1) a comeback win over the team that beat them for the championship in February.

Peyton Manning led a furious fourth quarter rally, erasing a 14-point deficit with a game-tying touchdown pass to Jacob Tamme with 18 seconds remaining in regulation. A successful two-point conversion knotted the game at 20-20, sending the contest into overtime.

However, Seattle (2-1) ensured a win as Russell Wilson led the team down the field on the opening possession of overtime. Wilson finished the game with 258 passing yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing for 40 yards.

The Seahawks led 17-3 at halftime as Wilson connected with both Ricardo Lockette and Lynch on touchdown passes in the first half to take the early lead. Lynch was later tackled in the end zone for a safety, sparking the Broncos comeback.

Manning's day ended with 303 passing yards and two touchdowns but also threw a pick in the fourth quarter.

Broncos Happy to Have Welker Back

Dustin Bradford/Getty Images(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) -- The Broncos are happy to have Wes Welker back on the field after the new NFL drug policy deal was announced on Wednesday.

Welker was re-instated just in time for Sunday's game against the Seahawks after the NFL's new policy on performance enhancing drugs was passed.

Welker was originally suspended for four games and was not eligible to return until Oct. 6.

"It feels great, it feels great,'' Welker said. " ... You really realize how much you miss it.''

Welker continued, "It seemed like every other day, I was kind of going back and forth about whether I was coming back or not.''

Quarterback Peyton Manning is among the players welcoming back Welker on the field. "Good to have Wes back,'' he said. "Guys were excited when he walked in the offensive meeting this morning...I know he's been excited to get back out here.''

Richard Sherman: I Was Not Exposed

Richard Sherman: I Was Not Exposed

Steve Dykes/Getty Images(RENTON, Wash.) -- Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman still is confident in his abilities after Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen said Sherman was a "normal guy and not a shutdown corner" after their win over Seattle on Sunday.

"You know, when a guy wants his name in the paper, he's gotta say something crazy," Sherman said about Allen on Wednesday. "It's humorous. I guess he wants something to tell his grandkids: 'Remember the day I caught a couple of balls on Richard Sherman? No touchdowns, but I caught a few.'"

Sherman and the Seahawks are preparing for a Super Bowl rematch against the Broncos on Sunday.

Sherman added that he is still a shutdown cornerback although he isn't perfect all the time. "I played pretty well," he continued. "But it's really funny that two little Chargers say I was exposed. One had 50 yards, and one had 60. It makes you laugh."

Sherman was referencing Allen, who had five receptions for 55 yards, and Eddie Royal, who had seven receptions for 69 yards, respectively.

The Seahawks signed Sherman to a record four-year deal during the offseason.

Seahawks Wide Receiver Sidney Rice Retiring at Age 27

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After seven seasons in the NFL, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice has decided to retire from the sport of football at the age of 27.

ESPN is reporting that Rice is walking away from the game because of a history or concussions.

"After careful consideration and seven wonderful years playing in the National Football League, including the last three for the Seattle Seahawks, I have decided to retire from playing in the National Football League," Rice said in the statement. "I have enjoyed my experiences with all of my coaches, teammates and passionate Seahawks fans."

Rice was a second-round draft pick out of South Carolina in 2007 by the Minnesota Vikings. His best season came in 2009 when he caught 83 passes for 1,312 yards with eight touchdowns.

Injuries have kept him off the field for much of the time since that season. He played a full season in 2012, but he's missed 25 games from 2010-20-13.

Rice had re-signed with the Seahawks for $1 million during the offseason.
