RENTON. Wash. -- Some key numbers for the Seahawks after Sunday's 41-20 victory over Minnesota:
Seattle's 13-game home winning streak, a franchise record, also is the longest active home streak in the NFL. Denver has won 12 in a row at home.
Marshawn Lynch now is tied with Minnesota's Adrian Peterson with nine rushing touchdowns this season. Lynch had two rushing TDs Sunday; Peterson had none. Lynch also caught a 6-yard shovel pass from Russell Wilson for another TD, the fourth time in his career he's had three touchdowns in the same game.
Seattle defensive end Cliff Avril had a sack and a forced fumble on one play in the first half, giving him 6 1/2 sacks and three forced fumbles this season. He now had 27 sacks and 11 forced fumbles since the start of the 2011 season, the only player in the NFL with more than 25 sacks and at least 10 forced fumbles over the past three seasons.
If the Seahawks win their final three regular-season home games this season, Wilson will tie former Cowboys quarterback Danny White for the most consecutive home wins to start an NFL career at 16. Wilson could break the record if the streak continues into the playoff this season. Two other former QBs still are ahead of Wilson for now -- Kurt Warner with 15 straight home wins at the start of his career and Marc Bulger with 14.
This chart will give you an idea of how good a job the Seattle defense did against Peterson Sunday when he rushed for only 65 yards on 21 carries.
