When the Seattle Seahawks announced this would be the week fans would get their wish with long-anticipated throwback uniforms making their debut, it seemed a way to build some hype and attention around a midseason matchup that might lack some excitement.
As it turns out, the Seahawks are grabbing at some nostalgia during the week of what’s become an important game for Seattle and Cleveland.
Both the Seahawks and Browns sit at 4-2. Both are a half-game behind their respective division leaders. Both have shown flashes of being dominant in phases of their games, while simultaneously facing questions about their legitimacy as contenders in their divisions.
Cleveland will start P.J. Walker at quarterback against the Seahawks after he came off the bench in place of Deshaun Waston to lead the Browns to a 39-38 win over the Colts. It will be the second start of the season for Walker and while his numbers won’t jump off the page, he does own a win over then-unbeaten San Francisco at home and then led the Browns on an 80-yard winning touchdown drive to beat Indianapolis.
Before a stint in the XFL and with the Carolina Panthers, Walker, who was signed to the Browns practice squad in August, spent two seasons with Indianapolis. While with the Colts, he served as Ventrone’s scout team kick returner.
Seattle QB Geno Smith has always been his own harshest critic. And the mistakes of the past two weeks have lingered with him more than any of the good plays he’s made.
While Smith threw two touchdown passes in last week’s win over Arizona, he also had another red-zone turnover and fumbled a snap. The previous week Smith threw two interceptions and Seattle managed just 10 points in five red-zone trips in the loss to the Bengals.
Myles Garrett doesn’t hide his passion for basketball, going as far as to mimic dribbling moves on the field before rushing the quarterback. He also became a minority owner of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers this week.
There’s also no doubt Garrett has hops. He showed his vertical skills last week at Indianapolis when he jumped over the Colts’ line in one motion and blocked a field goal.
Seattle’s throwback look for this season is a nod to the colors the team wore from its inception in 1976 through the 2001 season, with a specific nod to the uniform style worn in the 1990s. Seattle underwent a uniform makeover when Lumen Field opened in 2002 and then updated the look in 2012. But fans have long asked for the original colors to return.
Seattle leaned into the throwback nostalgia with promos and videos with a 90s theme and Lumen Field will be decked out in the old color scheme for this week.
While fans have flocked to grab the old-school merchandise, some of the luster will be lost if the silver helmets and blue jerseys are worn in a losing effort.
Seattle has been unkind to Cleveland over the years. Although the teams don't play often, the Browns haven't won in Seattle since 1989. In that 17-7 game, the Browns touchdowns came on a Tim Manoa run and a Bernie Kosar pass to Lawyer Tillman. And Matt Bahr knocked in a field goal.
Walker hasn't lost yet with the Browns, but big-time defensive plays have bailed out shaky performances by the journeyman quarterback. Will Cleveland's defense rise to the challenge again in Week 8?
The Seahawks have stabilized since a Week 1 loss to the Rams, winning four of their last five games with their only loss being a narrow defeat on the road in Cincinnati. Still, Seattle's offense hasn't reached its potential. Geno Smith was intercepted twice by the Bengals before the bye, and the passing game still looked like it was missing something against the dismal Cardinals.
A breakthrough game from Kenneth Walker III, who rushed for 105 yards vs. Arizona, could signal that the running game will become more important going forward.
The Seahawks have allowed a total of 30 points in their last three games, so taking advantage of a depleted Browns offense might be just as important as finding a rhythm on the offensive end in this Week 8 matchup.
