    Sunday Night wrap-up: Seahawks have too many big plays

    The Seahawks had more than enough offense to beat the Cardinals Sunday. Actually, they had more than enough on four snaps. The Seahawks traded on big plays and an opponent which couldn’t score, taking a 35-6 win over the Cardinals and the inside track for the NFC West title. They racked up 596 yards, but 263 of…

    Lynch caps touchdown with dive that probably will provoke a fine

    Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch iced Sunday night’s win over the Cardinals with a career-long 79-yard touchdown run.  He entered the end zone with a dive that included a crotch grab. The maneuver was identical to the manner in which Lynch capped off the “Beastquake” touchdown run from the wild-card playoffs four years ago.  When…

    The Lions and Packers have identical 11-4 records. Moreover, Detroit won the first 2014 regular-season meeting between the clubs by double digits. Nevertheless, in the rematch, host Green Bay is a big favorite to knock off Detroit next Sunday and capture the NFC North for a fourth consecutive season. Oddsmakers have made the Packers 7-…

    The final Sunday night game of the season has been announced.  And it won’t be the NFC South win-and-in-lose-and-go-home championship game. Instead, it will be the AFC North title game, with the Steelers hosting the Bengals.  The league opted for Bengals-Steelers even though the Steelers already have clinched a playoff berth.  On Monday night, the…

    Marshawn Lynch is obviously feeling better. The Seahawks running back, who missed exactly the first quarter with what was reported as an upset stomach, has now upset the Cardinals fans.

Cards sub quarterback Ryan Lindley is off to a rough start, hitting 4-of-10 passes for 39 yards. But he managed to…
