DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell felt his offense needed to have a clean day.
“We turned the ball over twice, and one of them went for seven points. That’s the difference in the game,” he said.
DETROIT (AP) — Geno Smith and Rashaad Penny were so good the Seattle Seahawks never needed their punter.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — As recent years have shown, keeping their running backs healthy for an entire season has been an issue for the Seattle Seahawks.
So while the Seahawks are going into this season with the intention of using Rashaad Penny as their featured back, it seems more likely the depth of Seattle’s running backs room — especially with the expected style of the offense — will be tested at some point.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The bookends to the Seattle Seahawks' season may have provided the clearest examples of what their offense was expected to look like.
Everything in between turned out to be a jumbled mess with a lot of what-ifs and reasons why Seattle (6-10) will finish with its worst record since 2009.
SEATTLE (AP) — Russell Wilson was the last off the field, waving his arms and stopping to sign a few autographs for the Seahawks fans who lingered in the rain.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Desperate for depth at running back, the Seattle Seahawks signed 36-year-old Adrian Peterson to their practice squad on Wednesday.
There’s no guarantee Peterson will be added to Seattle’s active roster ahead of Sunday’s game against San Francisco, but with Chris Carson out for the season, and Rashaad Penny and Travis Homer missing last Monday’s game with injuries, the Seahawks opted to add the veteran to bolster their depth.
