SEATTLE (AP) — Pete Carroll kicked his players out of the Seattle's practice facility Monday with a simple message for their week off.
Get some rest.
Rather than starting to look ahead for their next game Nov. 28 at Miami, Carroll decided after 10 weeks it was best for the Seahawks — winners of two straight — to get an extended break. So following a short team meeting Monday, the Seahawks were sent on their way coming off Sunday's 28-7 rout of the New York Jets.
The Seahawks (6-4) are 5-0 at home for the first time since 2005, the season they won the NFC championship and played in their only Super Bowl. And the 6-4 start is the best for the franchise since 2007, the last time Seattle won 10 games.
