Remember when the Seahawks' pass protection was by far the team's most pressing concern? It wasn't long ago that the offensive line, which featured new starters in four of five positions in 2016, was considered Seattle's Achilles' heel and a possible disqualifier for a team with Super Bowl aspirations.

Slowed by ankle and knee injuries, the Seahawks QB has just 35 yards rushing and no run longer than 9 yards.

With three scores against the Jets, the second-year running back leads the NFL in touchdowns with eight.

The Seahawks said there will be no carry-over from Sherman's rant that took numerous players to calm down the standout cornerback. Sherman erupted on the sideline, first at defensive coordinator Kris Richard and then at teammates.
