Seahawks Lineman Rees Odhiambo Suffered A Bruised Heart

Seahawks Lineman Rees Odhiambo Suffered A Bruised Heart”

The Seahawks have 26 first-half points; the 10 against the Colts was the most this season.

Rees Odhiambo took a hard elbow in the third quarter.

"His journey has been unbelievable, and we have all the respect in the world for him", right guard Jack Mewhort said of the undrafted rookie out of Warren Central and the University of Cincinnati. Now, after yet another second half slump, the question becomes when will things change? While there may be violence on the news and unnamed victims, we know exactly who our players are, and we should always keep in mind that they're people too.

Sunday night in Seattle's rally past Indianapolis in the second half, Wilson impressed them by going unplugged again.

"I think that's why you see the frustration from a lot of players saying they don't care about your fantasy team", he said. "We are a lot better than that".

Because while the Seahawks may have broken out in the second half Sunday, that wasn't a breakout win.

The Colts' run defense had been a major strength through the first three weeks, but the Seahawks ran wild for 194 yards on 5.9 yards per carry on Sunday night.

The Indianapolis Colts (1-2) are coming from a 31-28 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 3. The total has gone over in 18 of the Seahawks' last 24 games when hosting a East Coast team. "Second he really connects with the guys around him and does a good job of helping those guys really learn the game".

BACK IN BUSINESS: While the Colts continue to wait for the return of Luck and center Ryan Kelly, their best defensive player, cornerback Vontae Davis, sounds like he will play. The Colts now have six interceptions this season through four games after grabbing just eight total picks all of past year.

It was one of a number of injuries sustained by the Seahawks.

With Carson out, Lacy, who ran for 52 yards against Indianapolis, and Rawls are likely to compete for early-down work for the Seahawks.

Odhiambo, the second-string tackle after George Fant was lost for the season to a knee injury, was hit in the chest during an interception return in the third quarter.

Packers' quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, threw for four touchdown passes, with two finding Jordy Nelson for touchdowns.

While Brissett was critical of his performance, it was the Colts inability to get off the field defensively was just as important. That set up a 6-yard Wilson-to-Luke Willson pass play for a touchdown and an insurmountable 39-18 lead.

"J.D. McKissic is a running back that has been able to do all of those things", Carroll told reporters about him filling Prosise's shoes.

- Cornerback Nate Hairston's safety was the team's first dating back to December 27, 2015, in a win against Miami. Hooker is the first safety since Earl Thomas and Nate Allen back in 2010 to have three picks in their first four games, according to our Adam Stites.

- After converting his second quarter PAT, Vinatieri has now tallied at least one point in 46 different stadiums.

It had been 12 years since the Colts played at CenturyLink Field before Sunday night.
