Following up on Doug Baldwin's apparently-iffy status as of now for Sunday's game at San Francisco. He's missed three and a half games this season. The table shows Russell Wilson's 2018 passing numbers with and without Baldwin on the field.

The Seahawks' practice report for Wednesday paints the picture of a team that just played a Monday night game in December. It lists nine players as not practicing and three more as limited. Doug Baldwin, who missed the Vikings game, is among those who didn't participate. Pete Carroll described him as day-to-day, so his status for the 49ers rematch in Santa Clara is uncertain. Said Carroll of Baldwin: "We'll just go one day at a time with Doug and never expecting anything other than he may pull off another one of these miracles to get back and play. His mind is set on doing that. We'll see how he makes it through the week."

The Seahawks (8-5) can clinch a wild-card berth with a win over San Francisco on Sunday. Said Bobby Wagner about the low outside expectations that followed all the key offseason departures: "Everybody was so focused on comparing the team to what we had and they were forgetting what we still had."

Asked again about his controversial blocked field goal against the Vikings, Bobby Wagner said that while his hands touched teammates as he jumped over the line, he didn't push off or gain any elevation by doing that. "At the end of the day, it counted. I'm gonna take it."

While talking about linebacker Mychal Kendricks heading to IR on Wednesday, Pete Carroll said: "He wants to be part of this thing so badly, but he doesn't get to this time around. We'll look forward to getting him back next time and keep him with us." That sounds like a strong indication of a desire to re-sign Kendricks, who will be a free agent at season's end. It may also be an indication that the Seahawks don't think Kendricks will have to spend much time, if any, in prison over his insider trading charges. He's to be sentenced in January.


Are the Vikings Over-reacting?

Tony Reali and the national panel debate if the Vikings should have fired OC DeFilippo one day after the loss to Seattle, if Wagner's controversial FG block was illegal, if Giannis avoiding off-season workouts with the NBA elite is smart and much more.

Refs void flag on Seattle's apparent illegal block

An apparent good call by game officials in the Seahawks' 21-7 win over the Vikings on a Seattle block of a field goal in the fourth quarter was reversed -- with no prompt explanation.

Bobby Wagner blocked Dan Bailey's field goal attempt midway through the fourth quarter, sparking the Seahawks to two late touchdowns and a 21-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night, Seattle's fourth straight victory.

The Seahawks controlled the tempo in the first half against the Vikings, running the ball and the clock and keeping Minnesota's offense off the field. But they also didn't cash in on some long drives that should have given them something more than the 3-0 lead they take into the locker room. The running game and the defense are exactly what Seattle wants at this point but it needs to find a way to finish drives if it's going to put the Vikings away and all but secure a playoff spot tonight.
