Seahawks overcome slow start to crush Colts thanks to unlikely heroes

Robert Davis says he's boycotting the Seattle Seahawks until players stand up for the national anthem

Running back Chris Carson, who many predicted to be a fantasy threat this season, left the game during the fourth quarter after suffering a gruesome injury when his leg was folded up under two Colts players.

It was another Sunday Night Football showdown as the Indianapolis Colts went out west to square off with the Seattle Seahawks.

Jacoby Brissett and the rest of the Indianapolis Colts played well enough in the first half to hear the home team being booed off the field at halftime.

"I felt like everybody had the ability to turn it up a notch, and that's what we did", Wagner said.

Offensively, the Colts are averaging 17.7 points and 275.3 total yards (194.3 in passing and 81.0 in rushing) per game. He became the first quarterback in franchise history to rush for two touchdowns, pass for another and throw for at least 250 yards as the Colts put up 28 first-half points last week. Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable had been grooming Fant to start at left tackle for this season as well, but a torn ACL in the preseason has left the jury still out on him. The Colts would be wise to take a harder look at Brissett, but will the NFL's racial tendencies loosen enough for the team to fully commit to him?

Sunday's game was his first-ever for the Seahawks. "He's really solid and all that", Carroll said. The Vikings (2-2) lost more than just possession when Cook limped off with an injury to his left knee and did not return. The other INT fell to rookie DB Malik Hooker as the Seahawks were looking to build on an 18-15 lead late in the third quarter.

"And I forgot to celebrate with the team", McKissic said.

"They've got a lot of good players, don't get me wrong, but I think we had our plays there where we missed opportunities", Brissett said.

McKissic got his chance and ran with it.

"It kind of snowballed on us and got out of hand", safety Darius Butler said. If he is sidelined for an extended period, J.D.McKissic, Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls could all be in the mix for touches, leaving the Seahawks' backfield once again volatile from a fantasy perspective. We don't know that yet either so we'll find that out.

On 37 carries, Carson had rushed for 166 yards on the season going into Sunday night. But there's times when his teammates want him to drop the script, stop the smile and go belligerent and bellicose.
