Versus the Rams on Sunday in St. Louis not only did the Seahawks come away with a 24-7 victory over the Rams, but Chris Clemons finished his stat line with three sacks, two forced fumbles and several GREAT pass-rushing, and run-stuffing highlights for his extensive video tape collection.

NFC Weekly Defensive Award

Clemons’ three sacks were a career high.

Clemons is the first Seahawk player to be honored this season. Earl Thomas, Marshawn Lynch, and Kam Chancellor all have their own individual player beefs with the NFL. (For being snubbed in prior weeks)

Last year, three Seahawks special teams players were selected: punter Jon Ryan in Week 17, kicker Olindo Mare in Week 7 and kickoff returner Leon Washington in Week 3.
