Good morning. Feels weird not to have a Seahawks game today, but plenty of action ahead.
Non-Seahawks game of the day
Denver (6-0) at Indianapolis (4-2), 5:25 p.m., NBC
Not at tough choice here. Peyton Manning returns to Indy as the head man of the dominating Broncos offense. Shots fired during the week from Colts owner Jim Irsay. Manning facing his successor. National Sunday night game. Should be fun.
Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star wrote an open letter to Manning.
Yahoo’s Les Carpenter wrote about how meticulous Manning can be.
Seahawks Week 7 highlights
Oddly, not one sack in the highlights. From NFL.com.

Favorite Seahawks moment
From reader Ray Eickmeyer:
My favorite moment was when I went to the Monday Night Football game in Philadelphia on Dec. 5, 2005.
The week before this game the 12th man caused 11 false starts as the NY Giants lost to the Seahawks at home. I traveled on the road to the MNF and the stadium was packed with rowdy Eagles fans. What made this moment so special was by the end of the third quarter nearly ALL the Eagles fans left the stadium, there were maybe 50-100 Eagles fans still at the stadium. It was amazing. An empty stadium on a primetime NFL game. So at the fourth quarter I, with about 50 other Seahawks fans, walked back and forth along the seats to line ourselves up with the scrimmage line. I’ve never seen a NFL game like this, the stadium was empty, and we could watch from wherever we wanted. I will probably never see a primetime game like this again, let alone an NFL game. As you know, at the time this game was the biggest win in MNF history : Seahawks 42, Eagles 0.

Recipe of the day
Since we were just in Arizona, let’s go with huevos rancheros.
Chalk talk with Brock Huard
I’ve seen some talk here about the 55-yard pass to Marshawn Lynch out of the backfield last Sunday against Tennessee. Huard takes a look at that play.
Now, that’s funny (at least to me)
Sometimes, it’s hard to get going on Sunday. Here’s some motivational speaking to get started:
