The Detroit Lions boosted their chances of slowing down Seattle's running game and contending in the NFC North with one major move.Lions general manager Bob Quinn acquired Damon "Snacks" Harrison from the New York Giants for a fifth-round pick J.R. Sweezy Jersey , adding one of the NFL's top interior defensive linemen to help right away. He began practicing with his new team Thursday."It shows we want to win now," Detroit defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois said. "Bob is always up to something. He's not trying to win later, or to rebuild."The timing seems perfect for the Lions, who host the Seahawks on Sunday. Seattle has emerged as one of the NFL's best running teams, helping it win three of four after losing the first two games of the season. The Lions have been one of the league's worst against the run, and yet have overcome the weakness well enough to also win three of four after starting 0-2.Suddenly, Detroit's defense got better on the ground thanks to the 6-foot-5, 355-pound Harrison."Snacks has been a big-timer for a long time," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "Big presence. Really good in the running game and disruptive in the pass rush, too."So, it's a great get for them."Here are some other things to know about a matchup of 3-3 teams at Ford Field:SPREAD THE WEALTHCarroll has made clear Chris Carson will be the starting running back. That does not guarantee Carson will get the vast majority of the carries because Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny also merit playing time.Carson is averaging 4.5 yards per carry and has two 100-yard games. Davis also has a 100-yard game and is averaging 4.6 yards per carry, and leads the team with three rushing touchdowns. Penny ran for nearly five yards per carry in limited action in Seattle's last game against Oakland and is getting six-plus rushing attempts per game.Even with quarterback Russell Wilson carrying the ball just a few times per game on average, Seattle ranks seventh in the league in rushing with 127.8 yards per game.Detroit http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-tom-johnson-jersey , in the pre-Harrison average, gave up 139.3 yards rusher per game to rank No. 30 against the run.EFFICENT SCORINGDetroit tight end Michael Roberts is tied for the team lead with three touchdown receptions. That's quite a feat considering he has caught just four passes, on four targets, in the three games he has been healthy enough to play in his second season.The Lions drafted Roberts in the fourth round last year after he led the nation in touchdowns by tight ends, scoring 16 at Toledo."I wouldn't be here if I didn't control the red zone in college, and I'm doing what they brought me here to do," Roberts said.BYE BACKThe off week appeared to fall at a good time for the Seahawks. They are expected to have linebacker K.J. Wright and tight end Ed Dickson on the field for the first time this season. Wright has been out since having knee surgery following the third preseason game. Dickson missed all of training camp and the first six games with upper leg injuries that landed him on the non-football injury list.Seattle found capable replacements for Wright in Barkevious Mingo and Austin Calitro. Dickson's return should boost a position group that's seen attrition with Will Dissly's season-ending knee injury and Nick Vannett's lingering back problems.Seattle also should have rookie defensive lineman Rasheem Green back after missing three weeks due to a lingering ankle injury.WHAT A RUSHThe Lions are No. 11 in rushing offense, averaging 122.3 yards, a dramatic improvement from ranking last in 2017. Rookie Kerryon Johnson ran for a career-high 158 yards in last week's win at Miami, taking advantage of holes created by the improved offensive line."We have to build upon the good performances because nobody will care if we aren't consistent," offensive tackle Taylor Decker said. "Our improved running game has taken the wind out of the sails of pass rushers. We're making them play the run and the physical play can wear those pass rushers out eventually."MICHIGAN MANSeattle defensive end Frank Clark set career highs with 2 陆 sacks and two forced fumbles in the last game, a 27-3 win at Oakland. He earned NFC defensive player of the week honors for the performance that was made even more impressive because he missed much of the second half when he was sick. No one had more influence on professional sports in the Pacific Northwest than Paul Allen.But though he was the owner of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks and the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers and partial owner of Major League Soccer's Seattle Sounders, Allen usually shied away from the spotlight sought by others in his same position. As an owner Cheap Michael Dickson Jersey , he didn't have the same visibility as the Dallas Mavericks' Mark Cuban nor was he an omnipresent figure on the sidelines like the Cowboys' Jerry Jones.Allen would leave the locker rooms before cameras arrived, shuffling down hallways and out a side door to avoid taking attention from those he believed deserved it.The 65-year-old Allen died Monday from complications of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, according to his company, Vulcan Inc. His death leaves a big void in the sports landscape in the upper left corner of the United States, and questions are likely soon to follow about the future of the Seahawks and Blazers.He was a revered figure in Seattle for his entrepreneurship, philanthropy and for keeping the Seahawks from moving to Southern California in the mid-1990s. In Oregon, he was the billionaire who bought the Trail Blazers at age 35 and grew them into a small-market powerhouse with a pair of NBA Finals appearances while keeping them rooted in Portland.He was also part of arguably the most successful expansion franchise launch in pro sports history with the arrival of the Sounders in 2009."He was a visionary second to none who changed the world but also changed this city which he loved," said Tod Leiweke, who was chief executive of the Seahawks in the 2000s. "He left as big an impact on Seattle as any person on any city. His legacy here in Seattle will be felt forever."Allen's passion was basketball, leading to his purchase of the Blazers in 1988. Within a few years, the team was playing in the NBA Finals with Allen regularly sitting baseline to watch his team on the floor.But it was the NFL where Allen got the most attention, first for saving his hometown team from relocation and later as the team developed into one of the league's elite franchises. Then-owner Ken Behring was set to move the Seahawks in 1996. Moving trucks had cleared out the team's facility and players did offseason workouts in Southern California until the league threatened hefty fines against Behring and lawsuits halted the attempted relocation. Allen then purchased an option to buy the franchise and he became full owner once voters approved the construction of what is now CenturyLink Field.After Allen became the owner, the Seahawks had 12 playoff appearances K.J. Wright Jersey , three NFC titles and the only Super Bowl victory in team history. The team had made the playoffs only four times and had reached a single conference title game before him. Amid the success, Allen's most public moments came when he raised Seattle's "12 Flag" before each of the NFC title games the team hosted."His passion for the game, combined with his quiet determination, led to a model organization on and off the field," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said.Allen saw the Seahawks reach the Super Bowl for the first time in the 2005 season when they lost to Pittsburgh. Eight years later, he finally raised the championship trophy after Seattle's 43-8 thumping of Denver to conclude the 2013 season, and that night he performed at the celebration party at the team's hotel.When Seattle celebrated its title in February 2014 inside CenturyLink Field, the normally reserved Allen took a moment to address the crowd. He spoke for less than four minutes, but his words carried weight for the fans."I can't say how proud I am that the Seahawks are able to bring the Vince Lombardi trophy home to Seattle," Allen said that day. "Now we are all Super Bowl champions, each and every one of us."
