Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch get most of the attention, but the Seahawks offensive line’s performance against Buffalo caught the eye of NFL Hall of Famer John Madden. 

Left tackle Russell Okung, left guard John Moffitt, center Max Unger, right guard Paul McQuistan and right tackle Breno Giacomini usually don’t get their numbers called in a game unless they are called for holding. But the way this group dominated the Buffalo Bills’ Sunday earned them NFL Hall of Fame coach and broadcaster John Madden’s weekly “Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award.”

“Seattle has done a good job of controlling the line of scrimmage on a consistent basis,” Madden, who coached the Raiders before becoming an iconic broadcast analyst for NFL games, said in the release announcing the selection.

 

The Seahawks’ line, which is coached by Tom Cable, is now in the running for the fourth annual yearly award that recognizes what Madden calls “the backbone of every NFL team.”

The Seahawks take on the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday, with the broadcast starting at 3 p.m. on Newstalk KIT.
