Seahawks ready for late-season run

RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin is optimistic that his team is on the verge of making another late-season surge.

"I do. I contemplated in my head whether I wanted to say that out loud, whether I wanted to jinx it, but I do," Baldwin said in the locker room after Sunday's game. "I believe that this is the start of something that we've seen in the past. Again, like I said I told Russell (Wilson), whatever this is we need to capture it, we need to hold onto it and continue to push forward to get better because the truth of the matter is we still have so much left in the tank."

With a 24-10 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, the Seahawks showed they aren't planning on going away quietly despite losing Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Cliff Avril to injury.

Since Wilson took over as the team's starting quarterback in 2012, Seattle has been nearly unbeatable once the calendar reaches December. They've compiled a 20-5 regular-season record over that span in games played in December and January.

Seattle's offensive line has made significant strides since they acquired Duane Brown in a trade before the deadline. Their running game showed some signs of life last week and their defense held the league's top-ranked scoring offense to just 10 points. With the Seahawks' uncanny ability to excel late in games and late in the season, Baldwin thinks the team is ready to make a move.

"With our defense, we're establishing our run game again, we've got some guys who have been banged up for the past few weeks, past few months who are going to come back so we're looking forward to capturing what we had tonight and using this to make a run and push for it," Baldwin said.

With the Eagles game now behind them, Seattle faces another difficult task this Sunday. The Jacksonville Jaguars tout the league's best defensive unit. They lead the league in points allowed, yards allowed, sacks and pass defense.

"We've got a really good-looking opponent," head coach Pete Carroll said. "Very similar in the makeup to the team we saw last week in their commitment to the run, their commitment to the defense, the front on defense, these guys are leading the NFL in rushing, they are leading the NFL in total defense and scoring defense and their special teams are tough too.

"This is a very similar matchup for us and of course, the names and the faces change, but it's a good club and I know they are fired up and it's going to be a big game for us."
