Seahawks Finish Strong--Season Stays Alive

The march to the Superbowl is still going on for our Seattle Seahawks. After holding the Redskins scoreless for three quarters, the 'Hawks gave up their lead and almost lost the game until some late heroics turned the games back into their favor. DJ Hackett scored a touchdown with less then 7:00 minutes remaining to give Seattle it's lead back and then Marcus Troufant intercepted a Todd Collins pass and ran it into the end zone to put the game essentially out of reach for the Redskins. Jordan Babineaux's interception and touchdown in the final minute put the proverbial icing on the cake. The Seahawks came away with a 35-14 runaway win.
There should be a case for giving a "game ball" to Washington Redskin fullback Mike Sellers. Sellers raised the ire of Seahawk fans by bringing up the old argument that Seattle crowd noise was aided by artificial devices. After a media blitz emphasizing the comments, the crowd was ready to do some hardcore screaming causing Washington's offense to be penalized frequently. Next week, Seattle travels to Green Bay to face the NFL's surprise hit, the Packers.
