This Week

Ask my colleague Jordan Cordano wrote, the Seahawks added two starters to their lineup this past Tight end Ed Dickson returned from the non-football injury list and linebacker K.J. Wright finally returned to practice after missing the first six games after a surgical procedure on his knee. They will both be needed if Seattle is going to make a run to the playoffs.

Lions signal-caller Matthew Stafford can throw the ball all over the field with accuracy. Kenny Golladay and Golden Tate are quality receivers. It will be imperative for Seattle to get some pressure on the QB. Additionally, Kerryon Johnson has proven himself to be a legitimate running threat over the past month. He’s up to third in the NFC, averaging 74 yards per game.

It will be on the Seattle Seahawks offense, and more specifically, their ground game to grind down Detroit’s front seven and control the clock. Dickson will make a good safety valve for Hawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

It will be a close game, but one Seattle can win.
