With Thomas Rawls back, Pete Carroll said the Seahawks are “in a good situation” at running back.

Rawls is so pumped to return that family members are telling him to relax and “breathe.”

C.J. Prosise’s big hit after a big gain vs. the Patriots had everyone talking this week.

Here’s a preview of this week’s game, plus more to watch as the Seahawks and Eagles meet for the 15th time.

After the Seahawks lost a winnable game in New Orleans, the coaches decided it was time to let a heathier Russell Wilson make plays again.

The Eagles’ defense ranks as highly as Seattle’s in almost every category and will be a big challenge for Wilson and Seattle’s offense.

Meanwhile, Seattle’s defense has slumped a bit without Michael Bennett.

Wilson thinks Eagles QB Carson Wentz, the No. 2 overall pick, will “be a great football player for a long time.”

The Eagles, then run by Andy Reid, were going to draft Wilson in the third round in 2012, but the Hawks beat them to it.

Two years earlier, the Seahawks were happy the Eagles passed on Earl Thomas in the first round. They traded up to pick pass rusher Brandon Graham, who has turned into a solid player and figures to hassle Garry Gilliam this week.

The Eagles have re-signed three key players from their great special teams this week, including one-time Seahawks Donnie Jones and Chris Maragos.

Kam Chancellor was named NFC defensive player of the week.

Richard Sherman is lobbying for Cliff Avril, K.J. Wright and Doug Baldwin to make the Pro Bowl. Hard to argue with him.

A look at George Fant’s amazing rise — which probably could not have happened anywhere but in Seattle. He will remain the starting left tackle.

Gilliam said he was scouted as a baseball pitcher back in high school.

Wilson said he will be an investor in the Sonics — assuming he and Chris Hansen can get them back in Seattle.

Baldwin said he feels like a “zoo animal” — trapped in his football celebrity.

Sherman also wrote about how he wants to be the same kind of influence his parents and others were on him — and how Donald Trump comes across as such an anti-hero.
