CHAWK LINES -- Hawks at LionsThe Seahawks will honor Paul Allen with a uniform patch for the rest of the season.

The Seahawks will see three Super familiar faces in Detroit.

The Lions, who rank 30th against the run, brought in Snacks to help. Golden Tate welcomed Damon Harrison and also gave a throwback nod to his NFL career.

The Hawks will get their own defensive help. The return of K.J. Wright should allow Bobby Wagner to start making more plays. Wagner is close to the No. 2 spot on the franchise tackles list.

Wagner reiterated the Hawks need to keep Wright, and we think that means he has to accept a pay cut to return. Wright remains unconcerned about his contract.

Rasheem Green is questionable, but all the other key players are off the injury report for this game. Shamar Stephen (foot) and Dion Jordan (knee) apparently will play.

Ed Dickson is set to make his debut, which Pete Carroll called “like opening a Christmas present.” Dickson said he feels the best he has in nine years.

Here’s a look at Seattle’s last three unfortunate trips to Detroit.

The Hawks’ pass defense is playing its usual style and having similar success (running backs are still thorns in its side). Baby Boomer Shaquill Griffin: “I just feel like there’s nothing really different how we’re playing and how the original Legion of Boom guys played.”

Frank Clark’s contract continues to be a hot topic, though he likely won’t get a new one until after the season (cap constraints, ya know). Asked whether he wanted to stay in Seattle, Clark said, “Hell, yeah.”

The Lions have protected Matthew Stafford well, so Seattle probably won’t get much of a rush on him.

Chris Carson is No. 4 in broken tackles this season — just the way Pete Carroll likes his backs to run.

Thanks to their running attack, the Seahawks are the No. 1 red zone offense in the NFL. D.J. Fluker said, “If you watch us play, we’re all getting after it.”

Germain Ifedi has made a breakthrough in his third season, shutting up critics who had called him a bust for two years.

Carroll has talked to the NFL about Mychal Kendricks’ suspension and hopes the league decides on a definite length next week. Kendricks was suspended indefinitely before Week 5.

Russell Wilson told a radio guy, “We’re really rolling right now.”
