The high flying S undefeated Seattle Seahawks will travel cross country to take on the Miami Dolphins (1-2) for another 10:00 start. The Dolphins are coming off a solid 31-13 Thursday night win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Here is what we learned from head coach Pete Carroll’s weekly call with the media
SWEET TIME SPOT
The Seahawks have won their last nine games when playing a game in the 10:00am time slot. The record is a direct result of attention to detail by Pete Carroll and his staff. The Seahawks have become road warriors for a reason.
DOLPHINS RYAN FITZPATRICK IS AN AGELESS WONDER
The Dolphins offense is led by the nomadic Ryan Fitzpatrick who is in his 15th season. In the Dolphins win over the Jaguars Fitzpatrick was 18/20 for 160 yards and two touchdowns. While he is no Russell Wilson Fitzpatrick ran the ball seven times for 38 yards. During Wednesday’s video call Carroll pointed out that Fitzpatrick is having fun and playing his best football.
SEAHAWKS INJURY REPORT NOT SO BLEAK
Several Seahawks finished the win over the Cowboys on the sideline due to injury. The backs stepped up and played true to form. On Wednesday Carroll said the team is taking a cautious but optimistic outlook on center Ethan Pocic, G Damien Lewis, S Lano Hill, CB Neiko Thorpe, and RB Chris Carson. While the outlook is still optimistic CB Quinto Dunbar and SS Jamal Adam’s status might go all the way up to game time. Rookie linebacker Jordyn Brooks looks to have the most serious injury and likely to be out until the bye week. The Seahawks bye week will start after they host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night football October 11th.
