Week 13 MVP’s
Where was this Seattle Seahawks team early in the season? On Thursday night on national television, the Hawks dominated the Philadelphia Eagles and sent a message to the rest of the NFL – Seattle is going to be a tough test for any team for the rest of the season.
Seattle still has games against St. Louis, San Francisco, Chicago and Arizona on their schedule. All winnable if the cards fall right. 9-7 is still possible.
When: 8:20 PM ET, Thursday, December 1, 2011
Where: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington
Head Official: Peter Morelli
The offense was good and the defense superb on way to a 31-14 win.
So who stood out on Defense and Offense? Who deserves this week’s Seattle Seahawks Week 13 Offensive & Defensive Game Balls?
He finished the game with 148 yards on 22 carries, his long going for 40 yards. Lynch scored two touchdowns for the Seahawks as they beat the Eagles, 31-14.
None of his 148 yards were easy – most of the time it was the defenders that were getting punished.
Lynch has been over 100 yards in five straight games and is carrying this team – Tarvaris Jackson only threw for 190 yards and a touchdown tonight. Lynch is a Stud and is undoubtedly Seattle’s MVP.
I knew this near the beginning of the second quarter – Marshawn Lynch; you get this week’s Offensive Game Ball.
Honorable Mention – Golden Tate – Nice game kid. You obviously like the donuts in Seattle enough to play for that place on the team next year.
Tate reeled in his second touchdown in as many games when his 11-yard reception early in the third quarter gave Seattle a 24-7 advantage.
CB Brandon Browner – It was tempting to give the award to David Hawthorne who was questionable with a knee injury but still mustered an incredible game.
But this week’s Defensive Game Ball belongs to Brandon Browner, who, after getting beat deep for the TD that gave Washington the win last week, bounced back.
Browner had a career night on Thursday – 2 interceptions and 3 solo tackles.
Congratulations Brandon. Thanks for bouncing back in such dramatic style.
Enjoy this week’s Defensive Game Ball!
