One down, two to go as the Seahawks show us who they really are for the home stretch.
The 28-14 win in Detroit showed they can beat a good team in its place (Carolina, take note). Next, the Hawks need to show they can beat a better team (the Chargers) in Seattle (so Green Bay, Minnesota and Kansas City can take note).

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.
We’ll never know whether the Dallas Cowboys would have put together a deal for Earl Thomas this week if the Seahawks’ star safety had not been lost for the season.
Instead, the Cowboys sent a first-round pick to Oakland for Amari Cooper, who joined Carlos Hyde and Eli Apple as starting players already changing teams as the trade deadline nears.
There’s surely more to come before next Tuesday, but will the Seahawks be one of the teams in the action?
