On a cursory glance, it’s looking more and more like the game between the Texans and the Seahawks in October was an unfortunate crossing of paths for both teams. After that game, the Texans, who were already down J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus, have lost key pieces of the offense in Deshaun Watson and, now, D’Onta Foreman.
Seattle, after that game, has lost both Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor for the year. Save for Earl Thomas, who has been battling injuries this season, the so-called Legion of Boom has been effectively busted in 2017. Tonight will mark the first time since 2011 that the famed Seahawks’ secondary will not suit up for a game.
Did the Texans-Seahawks game cause these injuries? No, except maybe Deshaun Watson’s injury. What does this have to do with tonight’s game? Very little. I just thought it was curious, and I needed to fill space to make up the post.
Now that I’ve done that, I invite you to sit, relax, and watch Monday Night Football. Because what else are you going to do? Interact with your families? Pssh. That’s what the offseason is for.
