Seattle are back. The Seahawks more than lived up to their status as a 16 point home favourite on Sunday as they absolutely dominated a Cutlerless Chicago Bears club 26-0. Russell Wilson threw for 235 yards and connected with Jimmy Graham for a TD in the victory, but star rusher Marshawn Lynch ended up leaving the game with a hamstring injury in the 3rd. Rookie Thomas Rawls ran for 104 yards on the day with the added workload of Lynch being out of the lineup. Seattle has now locked up their first win of the season and Chicago limps to a rough 0-3 start.

Winning is sweet. Getting smacked into by a victorious MMA fighter? Not so much. There was a supremely awkward moment at Bellator 143 when Darrion “The Wolf” Caldwell did a celebratory backflip off the cage and landed on the poor cameraperson below. Don’t worry. She’s okay and probably feeling better than Caldwell’s opponent Shawn Bunch.
Did You Know?
- The Pittsburgh Steelers are going to have to fill a hole at quarterback. Pivot Ben Roethlisberger exited yesterday’s 12-6 road victory over the Rams with an injury to his left knee that will likely keep him on the shelf for at least four weeks. Backup Michael Vick took over for the remainder of the contest while returning running back Le’Veon Bell had 62 yards rushing and 70 yards receiving on the day. Pittsburgh improves to 2-1 and St. Louis dips to 1-2 for 2015.
- The reignited magic between Matt Ryan and Julio Jones should be making the entirety of the NFC very nervous. Matty Ice went 24-36 with 2 TDs and Jones caught both of those paydirt reachers in yesterday’s 39-28 win over the Cowboys. Dallas, who were without Romo and Bryant on Sunday, were held scoreless for the entirety of the 2nd half. Atlanta hits an enviable 3-0 mark on the year with Dallas dropping to 2-1.
- Josh Donaldson’s MVP portfolio has been bulked up even more after Sunday afternoon. The Blue Jays superstar hit a solo walk-off homer with 2 outs remaining in the 9th to give Toronto (a -166 home favourite) the 5-4 victory over the Rays. The Yankees also won their Sunday contest (a 6-1 thumping of the White Sox) so the Jays are currently four games up in the AL East title chase.
- Brent Seabrook will remain a Chicago Blackhawk for a very long time. The 30-year-old franchise blueline staple has inked a new deal that will pay him $55 million over eight years. In case you were curious, fellow Chicago defensive stud Duncan Keith is locked up with the team through to 2022-2023. The Blackhawks are pegged as a 13/2 Stanley Cup contender for his season.
