FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Seattle's Bobby Wagner and Sean Lee of Dallas were the All-Pro leaders of their defenses at linebacker the previous time the Seahawks and Cowboys made the playoffs.
Little has changed for Wagner's group in two years. Not much is the same in the middle of the Dallas defense going into the first postseason meeting between these teams since the 2006 season.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Outside of middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, no one on the Seattle Seahawks defense has proven more valuable this season than safety Bradley McDougald.
And just in time for a visit from the leading passer in the NFL, the Seahawks aren't sure if McDougald will be able to play Sunday against Kansas City.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — It's almost a given now that a Monday night game played in Seattle is going to include some sort of wackiness.
The latest chapter came during Seattle's 21-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings that has the Seahawks on the cusp of clinching an NFC playoff spot. The Seahawks need just one win against either of their final two NFC opponents — at San Francisco this week or at home to Arizona in Week 17 — to wrap up a wild-card berth.
SEATTLE (AP) — Bobby Wagner leaped over the line of scrimmage, swatted Dan Bailey's field goal attempt and sparked the Seattle Seahawks to two late touchdowns.
Whether or not what Wagner did was entirely legal, he frankly didn't care.
SEATTLE (AP) — Bobby Wagner walked to his locker and noticed there was perhaps a bit too much noise and laughter less than 24 hours after a loss. Wagner didn't raise his voice. He respectfully said a few words and the noise immediately died down.
"His voice is bigger than ever and he's taken to it," Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "He's embellished the role to become - he's really the voice of our guys. He's done a great job with handling that."
SEATTLE (AP) — After a shaky beginning, Russell Wilson got hot in the fourth quarter, Bobby Wagner and Seattle's defense stymied Aaron Rodgers and the Seahawks stayed in the middle of the NFC playoff race.
"We've been through so much throughout this season it was time to get over the hump," Wagner said. "We've been down, we've been up, we've lost close games, we've won close games. It was time."
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The idea the Seattle Seahawks would score 31 points and lose used to be unfathomable with Pete Carroll in charge.
It's happened now twice this season, both times to the division-leading Los Angeles Rams. And by the end of the season those two games of being unable to slow down the Rams could end up being the difference between Seattle finding its way into the playoffs and being left home for the second straight year.
SEATTLE (AP) — Games in the second week of the preseason are mostly meaningless and usually a forgettable exercise for veterans.
Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner hasn't forgotten what happened this past August when the Seahawks were facing the Los Angeles Chargers.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The players the Seattle Seahawks lost off their defense over the past year became synonymous with being considered among the best at their position and creating an elite unit that was tough to have success against.
And yet, the current batch of Seahawks sit near the midseason point with a defense that statistically is back among the elite of the NFL.
DALLAS (AP) — L-u-u-u-u-u-ke, and this time it's unanimous.
Luke Kuechly was voted the NFL's top inside linebacker by The Associated Press for the second straight year Friday, with all 10 members of the panel picking the Carolina star first.
The top three remained unchanged from a year ago, with Seattle's Bobby Wagner second followed by C.J. Mosley of Baltimore. Kuechly got seven of 11 first-place votes in 2017, and Wagner picked up the other four. No such split this time.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Oakland may always be home for Marshawn Lynch, but Seattle was the city that truly made him a star.
There was the "Beast Quake" run that set the tone for the Pete Carroll era with the Seahawks. The Skittles that rained down on the field after his big runs. The ferocious running style that inspired teammates.
SEATTLE (AP) — Chris Carson dished out punishing runs. Russell Wilson made smart, decisive throws at key moments. A defense led by Bobby Wagner and an unhappy Earl Thomas forced turnovers, making Dak Prescott and Dallas look meager trying to move the ball.
The Seattle Seahawks returned to a familiar, old formula to avoid a dreaded 0-3 start, beating the Cowboys 24-13 on Sunday.
"This is how we want to play. We couldn't be any more specific about it," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Stuck at home while out with a groin injury, Bobby Wagner met up with former Seattle teammates Kam Chancellor and Cliff Avril to watch the Seahawks' game in Chicago.
Sitting there as his team lost wasn't very enjoyable for Wagner.
"I'm definitely a guy who yells at the TV. I'm calling out plays and think they're going to hear you," Wagner said Thursday.
CHICAGO (AP) — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Tre Flowers and guard D.J. Fluker are inactive for Monday's game against the Chicago Bears.
Both players were listed as doubtful. Flowers, a rookie, started the opener after Dontae Johnson was placed on injured reserve last week.
With linebackers K.J. Wright (knee) and Bobby Wagner (groin) and top receiver Doug Baldwin (knee) injured, the Seahawks are missing five starters. Backup Delano Hill and guard Jordan Simmons are also out.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — New Seattle Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks will play Monday night against the Chicago Bears despite his pending jail sentence.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Saturday that Kendricks would make his Seattle debut due to major injuries at linebacker. The Seahawks ruled out both of its starting linebackers, K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner, due to injuries. Wright is still a week away from returning from minor knee surgery and Wagner suffered a groin injury in Week 1.
SEATTLE (AP) — John Schneider and Pete Carroll continue to refer to the makeover of the Seattle Seahawks as a reset, even if it's looked more like rebuild.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (9-7)
New faces: RB Rashaad Penny, OL D.J. Fluker, WR Jaron Brown, WR Brandon Marshall, TE Ed Dickson, TE Will Dissly, DT Tom Johnson, DT Shamar Stephen, LB Barkevious Mingo, LB Shaquem Griffin, DE Rasheem Green, QB Brett Hundley, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr., offensive line coach Mike Solari.
Key losses: TE Jimmy Graham, WR Paul Richardson, RB Eddie Lacy, DE Michael Bennett, DE Cliff Avril, SS Kam Chancellor, CB Richard Sherman.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Bobby Wagner reacted as though he was hoping the question would come.
With all the changes on the Seattle Seahawks defense — the leaders, the voices, the veterans no longer around — will there be a new focus on a group of linebackers that at times has seemed underappreciated?
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Linebacker Bobby Wagner practiced on Friday and will play when the Seattle Seahawks face the Dallas Cowboys despite a lingering hamstring problem.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Wagner is ahead of where he was last week when he did not practice at all and was a game-time decision against the Rams.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner expressed regret Wednesday for taking to social media to vent his frustrations about comments made by teammate Earl Thomas after Seattle's blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Whether all is settled between Seattle's star linebacker and its standout free safety is left to interpretation.
Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden will miss his fifth straight game with a fractured left leg, meaning rookie Cameron Sutton will make his first career start against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
Haden practiced this week and hoped he would be able to return. Instead the Steelers will turn to Sutton, a third-round pick.
Pittsburgh will have rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who was limited during the week with a hamstring injury.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks placed safety Kam Chancellor on injured reserve, waived guard Mark Glowinski, and promoted linebacker Kache Palacio and cornerback Mike Tyson from the practice squad Saturday.
Chancellor wasn't expected to play again this season due to a neck injury sustained against the Arizona Cardinals in November. He had remained on the roster for weeks for salary cap purposes.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks appear likely to be without at least one of their starting linebackers for Sunday's matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.
K.J. Wright has not practiced all week due to a concussion sustained last Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. While not officially ruled out, Wright has all but run out of time to clear the league's concussion protocol in time for Sunday's game. He's listed as doubtful to play against the Rams.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The good news for the Seattle Seahawks is that no one on their defense was suspended for the chaos that ensued at the conclusion of their trip to Jacksonville.
They still could be significantly undermanned heading into the most important game of the regular season to date.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — With concerns about depth at linebacker, the Seattle Seahawks have promoted linebacker Paul Dawson off their practice squad and placed offensive lineman Oday Aboushi on injured reserve.
The Seahawks made the roster moves Wednesday before beginning preparations for Sunday's NFC West matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. Seattle is uncertain of the status of linebackers Bobby Wagner (hamstring) and K.J. Wright (concussion).
SEATTLE (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles were without starting middle linebacker Joe Walker for Sunday night's game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Walker was among Philadelphia's inactives with a neck injury. He was listed as questionable on the final injury report after not practicing all week. He was the only starter out for the Eagles.
SEATTLE (AP) — It took a moment for Bobby Wagner to recall four years ago and what it felt like to be on a team that was 10-1 at one point of the season.
"That was a long time ago. I just remember a lot of winning and a lot of laughter," Wagner said. "It kind of just feels like you understand you are going to get everybody's best game.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — When Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner was younger in his career and still lacking some recognition, it was teammate Richard Sherman that was regularly touting Wagner's talent.
With Sherman out for the season, maybe he'll be able to find time to lead Wagner's campaign as his name is getting mentioned as a potential defensive player of the year candidate.
"(Sherman) needs to be in the building pumping us up," joked fellow Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Bobby Wagner knows he won't have Richard Sherman chirping in his ear from the Seattle Seahawks secondary the rest of the season.
Wagner may not have Kam Chancellor to rely on as protection for at least this week either.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Back from a long weekend of needed rest, the Seattle Seahawks began life without Richard Sherman on Tuesday.
It was noticeably different for those who have become accustomed to hearing the cornerback's voice on a daily basis.
"Just his energy, his passion, his trash talking is definitely going to be missed," Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. "But I'm positive he's going to find a way to talk trash on the sideline."
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Richard Sherman limped off the field with a ruptured Achilles tendon, just one of a host of players knocked out of the Seattle Seahawks' 22-16 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.
"It's a good division win, a good team win," Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said afterward, "but it's hard to truly appreciate it when you see a lot of guys go down with minor injuries, serious injuries."
When the schedule came out, folks in Seattle and Phoenix pointed to the Seahawks-Cardinals game on Thursday night as a pivotal one in the NFC West.
Forget that: Arizona, plagued by injuries and mediocre play, has been a huge disappointment.
Indeed, the Seahawks haven't exactly been world beaters, either, bothered by untimely penalties and a sporadic attack.
The Washington Redskins will be without three of their five starting offensive linemen Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
Redskins center Spencer Long (knee), guard Shaun Lauvao (stinger) and tackle Trent Williams (knee) are inactive for Sunday's game. Washington also won't have starting wide receiver Jamison Crowder (hamstring), tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) and defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis (hand).
