In Hauschka we trust. Steven Hauschka has quietly become the Seahawks most productive player this season. Through week ten he has made 22 of 23 field goal attempts and is perfect on 26 PATs. That’s a total of 92 points this season! The next highest scorer on the team is Lynch with seven touchdowns for 42 points. Hauschka’s kicking has also been a key to victory in several games (most recently the overtime win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers). Lest we forget, how many of us held our breath and were scared when he was hurt in the Tennessee Titans game only to despair when we witnessed the muffed field goal attempt at the end of the first half that resulted in a Titans touchdown? Before this week he was ranked fourth of all NFL kickers in FG attempts (tied with Dan Carpenter, Buffalo, and Ryan Succop, Kansas City).
