FPI: Near coin flip at the Meadowlands

ESPN's FPI gives the Seahawks a very slight advantage in Sunday's game, the third-tightest matchup of Week 7. The Giants have lost three straight to the Hawks, including two in a row at home.

The Seahawks did not make any transactions today, so their roster will remain at 52 for tomorrow's game against the Giants. The Seahawks had 24 hours prior to kickoff to fill the roster spot that opened when DE Cliff Avril went on injured reserve, or else they'd have to wait until next week to make an addition. They're healthy enough that they didn't need to add anyone right away.

The Seahawks have downgraded CB Jeremy Lane to out. This will be the second straight game he's missed because of a groin injury. Rookie Shaquill Griffin will start on the right side again and Justin Coleman will be the nickelback.

Week 7 NFL score predictions: Seahawks at Giants

Seattle's defense is playing more like its old, reliable self. New York surely won't enjoy the same turnover advantage that it did last week, resulting in win No. 1 of the season.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Here's the final Seahawks practice report with designations for Sunday's game vs. the Giants. Note that C.J. Prosise, Michael Bennett, Marcus Smith and Nazair Jones were all full participants the last two days (Friday was a walk-through, so participation was estimated), which is a good sign for their availability. All are listed as questionable.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks placed DE Cliff Avril (neck) on injured reserve Friday, an expected move. The team has yet to make a corresponding transaction, which means its 53-man roster is currently at 52. If the Seahawks were to fill Avril's roster spot this weekend, they'd have to do so 24 hours prior to kickoff of Sunday's game against the Giants (1:25 p.m. PST). But they could wait until next week to do so and keep their roster at 52 until then. Seattle doesn't have any defensive linemen on its 10-member practice squad.

The Seahawks list CB Jeremy Lane (groin) as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Giants, which means he'll likely miss his second straight game. Rookie Shaquill Griffin would again start opposite Richard Sherman in Lane's absence, with Justin Coleman handling the slot in nickel situations. Seattle lists DL Michael Bennett (heel) as questionable, but coach Pete Carroll said it looks like he'll be able to play. Also questionable: RB C.J. Prosise (ankle), DE Marcus Smith (ankle), DT Nazair Jones (knee). LG Luke Joeckel (knee) and DE Cliff Avril (neck) are out, as expected.

Seattle expects Bennett Sun.; others unknown

A thin Seahawks team expects Michael Bennett to be ready for Sunday's game against the Giants, but many others are unknown, and coach Pete Carroll says Cliff Avril might not play again.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The full Seahawks practice report for Thursday. Pete Carroll said it looks like DL Michael Bennett will be able to play vs. the Giants. CB Jeremy Lane's status is uncertain.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Pete Carroll was asked how much concern there is that DE Cliff Avril may never play again because of his neck/spine injury. Carroll's response: “We have to wait and see on that. That's really up to the docs and Cliff and all that kind of stuff, and I'm one-thousand percent supportive of whatever we need to do here to help him, and so that's why we're taking our time. The IR thing gives him six weeks at least to figure whatever else we can figure out. But he's not sure what's best for him right now and he's trying to find that out. We're giving him hopefully a good sense and a comfort that we're going to support it all the way throughout and figure out what's best and all that."

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Pete Carroll confirmed that DE Cliff Avril is going on injured reserve, though it hasn't happened yet. No decision yet on whether or not Avril (neck/spine) will have surgery.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

No firm word from Pete Carroll on CB Jeremy Lane's status for Sunday vs. the Giants. He just returned to practice from a groin injury he suffered in Week 4 vs. the Colts. Carroll said the team will need to see how he responds over the next few days.

Also from ESPN Stats & Information: the Seahawks' defense has allowed a touchdown on only 23 percent of opponents' drives that reached the red zone this season, the best rate in the NFL. Buffalo is next at 33 percent. Seattle is allowing 1.5 points per drive, fifth-best in the league.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Three interrelated and telling numbers about the Seahawks' passing game this season, via ESPN Stats & Information: Russell Wilson has been sacked or put under duress on 32 percent of his dropbacks (fifth-highest in the NFL); he's held the ball for an average of 2.8 seconds before throwing (third-longest); and he's attempted 36 passes from outside the pocket (tied for the most).

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Russell Wilson was asked today for his take on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell saying he thinks players should stand during the national anthem. Wilson: “I think everybody has their own opinions and everything else. I believe in the national anthem in the sense of America and what it represents, or is supposed to represent at least, I should say. Everybody has their different views. For our football team, we're about bringing people together and that's really our only focus. The good thing is there is actual dialogue and I think that's really the intent of all of this is to have dialogue around what's going on in our country more than anything else and actually converting that dialogue into change. I think that change is really what matters more than anything else. It's being able to love people better and try to do better throughout that process.”

Here's the full Seahawks practice report for today:

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks' practice report lists DL Michael Bennett (heel) as not participating today despite coach Pete Carroll saying yesterday that he likely would. Bennett said earlier in the day that he plans on playing Sunday against the Giants. He's dealing with what Carroll previously called a plantar fascia foot injury. CB Jeremy Lane, who hasn't played since injuring his groin in the first quarter of Week 4, also missed practice today.
