Seattle’s run game hits a purple wall
No team in the NFL has rushed for more yards this season than the Seahawks. Seattle currently leads the league with almost 150 rushing yards per game and they are also averaging more carries per week than any other team in the NFL this year.
In eight of their 12 games this season, the Seahawks’ offense has finished with at least 150 yards on the ground. This week, they will be going up against a Vikings defense that has only allowed five of their opponents to rush for 100 yards or more this year.

Knowing how productive Seattle’s rushing attack has been for them this season, expect Minnesota’s defense to put a lot of emphasis on stopping the run this week. And expect the Vikings to do well at this.
Thanks to Linval Joseph and Sheldon Richardson clogging up holes in the middle of the defensive line, Minnesota is only allowing their opponents to average 3.7 yards per carry this year (fifth-best in the NFL).
On Monday, the Seahawks’ running backs are going to get to know Joseph and Richardson really well as the two will play a big part in holding Seattle’s rushing attack to under 100 yards.
