Tuesday was an off day for the Seahawks. But they will be back at work today as they prepare for Sunday’s game at Atlanta.
And as they prepare for the Falcons, they do so with an 8-1 record that is the best in the NFC and includes two overtime wins clinched on field goals by Steven Hauschka (above in a John Lok photo).
I wrote about Hausckha for our story for the Wednesday paper, in particular, his approach to game-winners and changes he made in the off-season to improve his game.
