Stelton: Should the Seahawks be resting key players in Week 17?

Dec 27, 2018, 11:58 AM | Updated: 12:04 pm

The Seahawks are gearing up for the playoffs, but there’s an obstacle before they get there – a Week 17 game against the lowly Arizona Cardinals.

While Sunday’s regular season finale has some meaning as far as playoff seeding goes for the Seahawks, Seattle also has a number of players who are banged up and could stand to get some rest this week.

Bob Stelton of 710 ESPN Seattle’s Bob, Groz and Tom would like to see Pete Carroll’s team err on the side of caution at CenturyLink Field on Sunday, as he shares in the attached video.
