The Playoff bound Seattle Seahawks were so hungry to end a three game losing skid, they played their first team and paid a price. Cornerback Kelly Herndon is finished for the year with broken ankle. The 'Hawks beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-7, but the team's starters would probably have been resting if Seattle would have gone into the game with momentum. Herndon was the second cornerback to go down as Marcus Trufant sprained an ankle last week.
Matt Hasselbeck passed for 216 yards including a touchdown pass to DJ Hackett. Saun Alexander made a one yard touchdown run. The always reliable Josh Brown contributed with 2 field goals.
