The Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon. The Hawks are hoping for a second win against their rivals this season to move them closer to the playoffs.

The Seahawks' schedule is about to get tougher, and the timing couldn’t be worse. They learned this week that they’ll be without two key players for the rest of the season.

KPLU sports commentator Art Thiel said it’s bad news as the team heads to Kansas City to face the Chiefs on Sunday.

Art also says Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez narrowly losing his bid for a second Cy Young Award was "a little bit unfair."

The spotlight will be on the Seahawks once again this weekend as the team tries to bounce back from all the controversy that's been swirling around them recently. They play the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte on Sunday.

The Seahawks start their season with a bang, or should we say a boom. The defending Super Bowl champions trounced the Green Bay Packers Thursday night by a score of 36-16 at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

The Hawks’ notorious Legion of Boom defense certainly showed its stuff. But KPLU sports commentator Art Thiel says the offense was on fire as well.

It may be baseball season, but Seahawks fans are already thinking about football this fall. That's because the 2014 NFL schedule came out this week, but that's not the only reason.
