RENTON, Wash. Dennis Eckersley Jersey . - When Marshawn Lynch got to his feet following the longest touchdown run of his career, there was still one more defender to shrug off.Safety Earl Thomas went racing off the sideline to leap on Lynch and add to the Seattle Seahawks end-zone celebration.The Seahawks are the hottest team in the NFL with a five-game win streak and the chance at a second straight NFC West title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. And Seattle (11-4) has rediscovered having fun while re-establishing itself as the favourite in the NFC.It was never more evident than Sunday nights 35-6 rout of Arizona. No moment was more telling than Lynchs 79-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter.I had as much fun last night as Ive had coaching. ... All of the stuff that was happening was just a blast, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said on his weekly radio show Monday morning.Five weeks ago, Seattle even making the post-season was in question, perhaps on the cusp of being the latest Super Bowl winner to watch the playoffs the following season at home. Now all Seattle needs is a win at home against St. Louis and Detroit and Green Bay to avoid playing a tie and the Seahawks will be the No. 1 seed.Last season, the Seahawks played at MetLife Stadium and shut out the New York Giants 23-0 in Week 15, then returned a month-and-a-half later to stymie Denver in the Super Bowl. Could a repeat be on the horizon with this years Super Bowl played on the Cardinals home field?I dont think that far, Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. I think we have a lot of challenges up before we think that far ahead, but I like our chances.The result Sunday night wasnt unexpected. For all Arizona has overcome this season with injuries and absences, the Cardinals were still starting a third-string quarterback against the No. 1 defence in the NFL.The surprise was the eruption of Seattles offence, setting a single-game franchise record for total yards with 596. It was the second-most yards by any team this season, trailing only the 639 posted by Pittsburgh in its win over Indianapolis.It came against an Arizona defence that had given Seattle fits in the past two matchups. The Seahawks had only 192 yards in their 17-10 loss to the Cardinals in Week 16 last season, and managed just 293 yards while quarterback Russell Wilson was getting sacked seven times in their 19-3 win a month ago.Wilson threw for 339 yards Sunday, a career high in the regular season. The Seahawks had six pass plays of 20 or more yards including Luke Willsons 80-yard touchdown to go along with Wilsons 55-yard run and Lynchs spectacular touchdown.Its the combination of all of this that has happened with Marshawn and Russell, the guys up front, Carroll said. This attitude that were playing with, it gives us a chance to really have high hopes going into the last game.The Seahawks rushed for 267 yards against the Cardinals and are averaging 175.3 per game. Its the second-highest per game average in the NFL in the past 30 seasons: Atlanta averaged 183.7 yards rushing in 2006.Wilson likely wont reach 1,000 yards rushing, needing 158 in the finale against the Rams. But he could become just the fourth quarterback to reach 900 yards rushing in a season.Were so lucky that hes playing for us, Carroll said.NOTES: Carroll sounded pessimistic about WR Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) being ready for Sundays regular-season finale. Kearse didnt feel his hamstring pop, Carroll said, but getting healthy in a week seemed unlikely. ... LT Russell Okung (bruised lung) is expected to practice later this week. Carroll was unsure if C Max Unger (ankle) would practice.___AP Sports Writer Bob Baum contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Dwight Gooden Jersey .S. routed Sweden 7-0 Sunday to win its fourth straight title and seventh overall under-18 world championship. Olson earned his third shutout of the tournament and the Americans allowed only four goals in six games to set an International Ice Hockey Federation under-18 record. Albert Belle Indians Jersey . -- LeGarrette Blount made one last big splash into a soggy end zone. https://www.cheapindiansonline.com/3758u-buddy-bell-jersey-indians.html .com Tours Nova Scotia Open. The 27-year-old Sloan, a former Texas-El Paso player from Calgary matched first-round leader Rodriguez at 10-under 132 on Ashburn Golf Clubs New Course.EDMONTON -- Chris Jones is from the small town of South Pittsburgh, Tenn., where, he says, theres a lot of blue collar people who "work extremely hard for their money." And that hard work, he said, is what he will bring to the Edmonton Eskimos as the 20th head coach in their history. He also brings a wealth of CFL experience. Hes been a defensive coach since 2002, including stints as an assistant head coach two years in Calgary and most recently as assistant head coach, assistant general manager and defensive co-ordinator for the Toronto Argonauts. Jones has been in the post-season each of his 12 years in the league, won seven division titles and three Grey Cups. The length of terms of his contract were not revealed. "Today is about 2014 and beyond," Eskimo general manager Ed Hervey said in introducing Jones to the media and fans on Wednesday. "I know I have selected the right person to coach this team. We know there is work to do but we are committed to making this thing right and I believe our team is in the right hands of Chris Jones." Saying he was "tremendously excited" to have his first head coaching job, Jones told the gathering of about 50 people in the Eskimos dressing room that he remembers growing up in South Pittsburgh "where they make cast iron and all I wanted to do is be a head football coach. "Now I have a chance to do it with what I feel like is the best organization in this league and I fully expect to put together a great staff, I fully expect to win a ton of games and bring a Grey Cup back here. "My teams have won a lot of games, Grey Cup championships. Its been a tremendous, tremendous ride and its going to continue in Edmonton." One of hhis first priorities is to secure a coaching staff. Tyler Olson Indians Jersey. He wouldnt mention any names, he said, because many of the people hes looking at are employed by other teams and hes waiting for permission to speak to the individuals. But, he said, when it comes to finding his staff and upgrading the player roster, "were going to hit the ground running. This is not going to be one of those slow procedures. . . its going to come rather quickly." Jones, who was a guest coach with Edmonton in 1999 when Hervey was a rookie receiver on the team, brings an aggressive style and attitude and said the Eskimos will play that way under his regime. He takes over a team that went 4-14 in 2013, a record that resulted in the firing of head coach Kavis Reed and at times had Hervey publicly criticizing the players. "Some of the parts are here," Jones said of the Eskimos. "Its just a matter of finding some help in other spots. To win you need great players, great coaches and in the next few months we will work on that." Hervey, who publicly apologized to members of the media for his attitude towards and treatment of last season, said he wanted a head coach similar to him and he likes the fit between himself and Jones. "His resume speaks for itself. He has the type of attitude that we need here. The expectation levels are high and when you talk about what is expected I felt there was only one person who could meet those expectations and hes standing in front of you. "I made the right football decision, for many reasons. I firmly believe we have the right guy for the job. I believe in Chris Jones. When I look at our club I honestly believe he gives us the best chance of winning." ' ' '
