|Seahawks DST sends a message |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(12/3/13) The Seahawks shut down one of the league's most prolific offenses in Week 13, embarrassing the Saints 34-7. The 7 points were the fewest scored by New Orleans since Sean Payton became coach in 2006.
Seattle limited New Orleans to 188 total yards and 2.6 yards per carry. Quarterback Drew Brees threw for 147 yards, ending his streak of 43 games with 200-plus passing yards.
The Seahawks DST scored in the first quarter when end Cliff Avril hit Brees' arm as he threw and end Michael Bennett caught the fumble and rumbled 22 yards for a touchdown. Avril was credited with the sack, giving him 7 1/2.
The Seahawks DST enters Week 14 at San Francisco with a ton of momentum.
|Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett deliver more sacks |

(11/10/13) Seahawks defensive lineman Cliff Avril, who contributed half a sack Week 9 against the Buccaneers, and defensive lineman Michael Bennett, who contributed a whole sack, both continued with the sacks Week 10 at Atlanta. Avril had one on two solo tackles, and Bennett had one on one solo tackle.
Avril is up to 5 1/2 sacks this season, just four away from last year's total. Bennett is up to 6 1/2, just 2 1/2 away from last year's total.

(11/1/13) Seahawks DE Michael Bennett, DT Brandon Mebane and OT J.R. Sweezy are listed as probable Week 9 against the Buccaneers.
Mebane has been held out due to non-injury reasons. Bennett is dealing with an illness. Sweezy has an elbow issue.
|Seahawks D-linemen hunt down the QB |

(10/18/13) The Seahawks' depth along the defensive line allowed them to keep the pressure on throughout Week 7 against the Cardinals Thursday. All told, the Seahawks brought down Carson Palmer seven times, with eight players combining for sacks.
A pair of linebackers, Malcolm Smith and K.J. Wright combined for 1 1/2 sacks, while the rest came from the line. Tony McDaniel, Clinton McDonald, Michael Bennett, Chris Clemons and Cliff Avril each picked up a full sack, while Red Bryant combined for a half sack with Wright.
|Michael Bennett put up career-best numbers in 2012 (nine sacks, three forced fumbles, 41 total tackles) but could only snare a one-year deal from the Seahawks this spring. It was reported Bennett had a torn rotator cuff and that could have harpooned what would have otherwise been a lucrative market for him. A solid year with the Seahawks should bring more rewards in the following offseason. For Fantasy purposes, though, he's not productive enough to call anything more than a late-round pick.
