Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s “out there” for today —Wednesday, December 21 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Two Seahawks Make ESPN’s List
With the help of NFL personnel evaluators, ESPN senior writer Mike Sando compiled a list of 10 notable players who should have made the 2017 Pro Bowl.
Two Seahawks players made Sando’s list, in tight end Jimmy Graham and linebacker K.J. Wright. One evaluator described Graham as a top-five player at his position, while another said Wright doesn’t get enough credit for his abilities:
“My Lord, Graham is playing like a Pro Bowler,” an AFC personnel evaluator said. “I would absolutely take him over Jordan Reed. Graham is a top-five tight end right now.”

With Andrew Luck out with a concussion, the Indianapolis Colts were given a firsthand look at how much their Pro Bowl quarterback means to them.
It turns out Luck means a whole heck of a lot.
Ben Roethlisberger threw three touchdown passes to Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell rushed for 120 yards as the Pittsburgh Steelers took first place in the AFC North with a 28-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday.
The Steelers have a half-game lead over the Baltimore Ravens, who host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. They’ve now won two straight games since a four-game losing streak that put their playoff hopes in jeopardy.
Roethlisberger and the passing attack accounted for 221 of Pittsburgh’s 369 yards, spearheading drives that opened up a two-touchdown lead in the first quarter from which the Colts did not recover. The Steelers quarterback completed 14 of his 20 passes, with their game plan making a clear decision to send passes down the field.
Brown led the team with 91 yards on his five receptions. This is Brown’s third multi-touchdown game of the season and 12th of his career. It’s the first time he has ever scored three times in a game. Gordon McGuinness of Pro Football Focus made an astute observation about the former sixth-round pick:
Antonio Brown is basically the Tom Brady of WR draft wise, and we probably dont acknowledge that enough
