Seahawks | O-line struggles to protect Russell Wilson
The Seattle Seahawks' patchwork offensive line allowed QB Russell Wilson to be sacked seven times in the team's 14-9 win over the St. Louis Rams in Week 8 Monday, Oct. 28. The run blocking wasn't much better in the victory. "We had a million problems in protection," head coach Pete Carroll said. "The Rams rushed like crazy and we did a ton of stuff to try to offset it, but nothing helped us." Seattle only had 135 yards of total offensive in the contest, with 80 of them coming on a passing touchdown to WR Golden Tate.
Fantasy Tip: It'll be at least a couple of weeks before Seattle gets Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini back, so it might be a continuous struggle to protect Wilson until then. This trend also isn't good for Marshawn Lynch.
