Venue: Reliant Stadium – Houston, TX

Date: September 29th, 2013

Kickoff Time: 10:00am PT

TV Channel: FOX (Ch 13 in Seattle)

Radio: 710 ESPN Seattle and 97.3 FM

Live Stream: NFL Live Stream

Vegas Odds: Seahawks favored by 2 1/2 points

The Seahawks travel to Houston for their Week 4 matchup and try to do something they haven’t been able to do in franchise history. The five previous times the Seahawks have gone 3-0 to start the season they have failed to go 4-0.

This week they face a Texans team that has star power on both he offensive and defensive side of the ball in players like Andre Johnson, Arian Foster and J.J. Watt.  The Texans sport one of the NFL’s best pass defenses and the top pass rusher in Watt.

Seattle is already without Pro Bowl left tackle Russell Okung and will likely be missing fellow Pro Bowl center Max Unger as well as guard Breno Giacomini.

    35 minutes until game time!!!

  • Matthew Gray

    Lets rock out with our Hawk out!

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    I might be more worried for this game because of all the injuries then I was for the 49ers.

    • Matthew Gray

      No worries Paul, the Seahawks will steamroll this lackluster Texans team!

      • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

        Ha, we’ll see. Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, JJ Watt, Brian Cushing, Jonathan Joseph! They’re stacked.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Unger and Giacomini are inactive today. Lemuel Jeanpierre starts at center.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Seahawks are wearing the Wolf Grey jerseys

    • Ben Peacock

      I’m not a fan of these Jerseys, they remind of a baseball team with their away grays.

      • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

        I like ‘em. No other team has anything similar.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Texans start from the 20. And here we go!!!

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Red Bryant on the 300 pound swat!

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    16-yard run, pass swat, 2-yard run, QB rush for incompletion to end the Texans first drive.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    3-0 thanks to a Hauschka FG

  • Ben Peacock

    Earl Thomas pick!! That’s reason number one I don’t like the empty backfield, when the defense knows exactly what you’re doing it’s that much harder to do it.

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      I almost picked ET as my MVP. Thought Schaub might make a few mistakes and who better to make him pay?

      • Ben Peacock

        He’s so good in that freelance role, his instincts for finding the ball are unbelievable. That’s two picks off of tips in 3 weeks

  • Ben Peacock

    Penalties were already a problem for this team, having Max Unger and Giacomini out will not help.

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      Where was Miller and Willson?

      • Ben Peacock

        I think the line’s going to be a serious issue today, you can’t send tight end help against JJ Watt on the interior. And realistically I don’t think Willson is that great of a blocker yet.

        • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

          Just wondering why Davis is seeing so much action.

          • Ben Peacock

            probably think he’s a better blocker than Willson, not sure though, he’s not very good.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Lynch with another Beastmode run there!

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Seahawks up 3-0 after the 1st qtr. Offense isn’t doing anything for the Hawks and had it not been for that INT, Seattle might be losing this one. Seahawks have been a second half team since Carroll took over though.

  • Ben Peacock

    Malcolm Smith just can’t cover a tight end. Already was a bit of a weakness for us but with KJ down, that’s a serious concern.

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      The whole D right now is a serious concern.

      • Ben Peacock

        I think they look mostly Ok, it’s all passes to backs, and tight ends. Andre Johnson is gonna catch a few regardless of defense. We just gotta take away the run, if they can’t run play action effectively they won’t move the ball.

        • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

          It’s just a few big runs that are hurting us.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Wright may not be coming back.

  • Matthew Gray

    Wow, Time for D to lock in!

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Well… It’s going to take some work for the Seahawks to make this a ball game. Only an 11 point lead for the Texans but the way the defense is playing for both teams, it’ll be very tough.

  • Ben Peacock

    Seahawk Defensive line has got to start winning their matchups, They need to be getting pressure with a 4 man rush to stop the Texans.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    We all knew the O-Line was going to be an issue but Wilson has zero time to do anything.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    It just got worse. Lynch fumble. Texans ball.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    This TE, Graham is killing us!

  • Ben Peacock

    Bend but don’t break, good stop there on a short field.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    That stop was big. 14 point lead for Houston now.

  • Michael Young

    We need a stop

  • Ben Peacock

    what a horrendous penalty, a bad call, but Chancellor can’t put himself in that position.

  • Michael Young

    Th

  • Michael Young

    That call was junk

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Ridiculous call there. No way that should have been called.

  • Michael Young

    We need to get pressure on Schaub…

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      You’re not kidding. He’s been rushed on maybe three plays so far.

  • Ben Peacock

    Oh no, Hope Michael Bennett is just knocked out and not anything worse.

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      He looked completely cold.

      • Ben Peacock

        Oh god, it’s a neck injury, never want to see that.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Too bad that ball didn’t stay in play for the Hawks.

  • Michael Young

    Pete does a great job making half time adjustments… Hope he does today, we get the ball first

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      I’ve been saying that too Michael. The Seahawks always come out in the second half a much better team. We’re going to need a strong second half in this one.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    This game is getting hard to watch. Schaub is shredding this defense apart.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    What? Was that pressure on Schaub? Odd

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Nice forced fumble by Smith and extra props for managing to recover it before it rolled out of bounds.

  • Todd Pheifer

    Finally a break. ‘Hawks must get touchdown if they want to have any shot at shifting the momentum.

  • Todd Pheifer

    Three points not much of a consolation after a big turnover.

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      No, but now it’s a two score game. Another big turnover/special teams play is needed.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Momentum shift?

    • Todd Pheifer

      Momentum shift, indeed.

  • Michael Young

    Here we go, we need a big stop.

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      I smell INT

      • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

        I didn’t mean a Wilson INT. Damn

  • Todd Pheifer

    Huge sack by Clemons.

  • Todd Pheifer

    Sherman!!!

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    TOUCHDOWN INTERCEPTION BY RICHARD SHERMAN!!!

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    This feels like a damn playoff game. Nervous.

  • Matthew Gray

    Gonna bring it home here.

  • Matthew Gray

    Beastmode wants some skittles.

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    I’m going to remain silent for a while

  • Matthew Gray

    Boom

    • Todd Pheifer

      Well said.

  • Todd Pheifer

    Oh, the amazing power of momentum in sports. 20 unanswered points.

  • Michael Young

    Sea-HAWKS!!!!!

  • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

    Another instant classic. This compared to the Patriots and Packers games from last season. Just wow.
