Thomas missed Seattle’s loss to Washington and win over Arizona after pulling his right hamstring in a wild win over Houston.
Philadelphia has become the favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl and it’s easy to see why. With Carson Wentz making pinpoint throws, a solid defensive secondary and established running game, the Eaglescontrol the clock and confuse opposing QBs like they did Dak Prescott on Sunday night with his three interceptions.
The Eagles offense rushed for 215 yards on 33 carries and saw four rushers in double-figures led by Jay Ajayi with 91. Corey Clement torched the Cowboys late and arguably the team’s No. 4 back Kenjon Barner saw the end zone in the rushing onslaught.
“I think he’ll make it back,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said on his radio show on 710 ESPN. “He felt like he probably could have played had he gotten a couple days of practice in. So it worked out great. We made it through the game. Bradley (McDougald) did a great job of filling in for him and so he should be back. Now he has to make it through the days (of practice) and each doesn’t kind of pile up on him but I think he’ll do just fine.”
It’s not all good news in the Pacific Northwest, however, as Richard Sherman is gone for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon and safety Kam Chancellor may not be available against Atlanta after suffering a stinger last Thursday against Arizona.
The White Sox and Royals were the only two teams to fail to make the postseason in any of the simulated seasons. For the Royals, that should serve as a wake-up call. For the White Sox, it’s all according to the plan. If Chicago overachieves this season because its wave of young players starts to mature more quickly than expected, that forward momentum and a ton of free payroll could make the White Sox a prime team to watch when the sparkling free-agent class of next winter hits the market.
