Houshmandzadeh had an off day with four catches for a low 38 yards. Head coach Jim Mora was seeing red after placekicker Olindo Mare missed a pair of field goals that wound up costing his team dearly. The Seahawks must utilize TE John Carlson, he was targeted 10 times but only made three catches for 28 yards. They outrushed and outpassed the Bears, but couldn’t get anything going in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks are still waiting on the health of QB Matt Hasselbeck, who suffered a rib injury, as he’s the man that controls their destiny. Their offense is ranked 10th in total yards a game, while their passing game sits 12th and their running game sits 15th. Their defense is all about the pass rush which is ranked 9th best, but they struggle against the rush ranked 25t.

QB Peyton Manning made 24 of 35 passes for 379 yards with four TD passes and one interception, overall he’s thrown for 983 yards with seven TD passes and two interceptions. Their top RB Joseph Addai had 13 carries for 63 yards, while top WR Reggie Wayne made seven catches for 126 yards with one TD. Te Dallas Clark and WR Pierre Garcon each added a TD. The Colts completely dominated the Cardinals on the ground and in the air. Their offense is all about air time, which is ranked best in the league and they average the fourth best total yards a game. If they could just balance out their running game to go along with their passing game they would be a force to reckon with. Their running game sits idly ranked 26th. On defense they allow the 11th least amount of total yards a game, while they sit 10th against the pass and 21st against the rush. DE Dwight Freeney has three sacks so far, but is out for 2-3 weeks with quadricep injury. The Colts are averaging 27 ppg while averaging 14 ppg at home.
