Morning links: Can Seahawks keep winning?

kjwright

We’ll begin this morning with this column from Jerry Brewer in which he makes the case that the Seahawks can run away from the rest of the NFC if they can solve their road woes. Brewer sets up the picture this way:

The Seahawks have taken an early lead at a time when they should be, at best, running with the pack. The four-month NFL regular season is too long to celebrate this progress, but it’s short enough to consider it significant. And true to the grind of the season, the success merely frames the importance of their next assignment.

The Seahawks will play their next two games on the road against two AFC playoff teams from a year ago, Houston and Indianapolis. They’re huge tests of the team’s competence level away from CenturyLink Field. And with the other NFC preseason contenders flailing, the next two games represent an opportunity for the Seahawks to widen this surprising gap – or, if they struggle, for the competition to stay close. In the Pete Carroll era, the Seahawks have a 9-16 road record, 10-18 if you count the playoffs.
