The NFC's strongest team just became more formidable.
Harvin had originally planned to make his Seahawks debut two weeks ago, only to suffer a setback when his hip flared up in practice. He'll have to avoid the same problem this week to follow through on his expectation of playing on a limited snap count.
Harvin isn't the only key player returning this week. Starting offensive tackles Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini are both expected to be full speed for the first time in more than one month. If all goes as hoped, they will join Harvin in the lineup Sunday.
It's looking more and more like the NFC's road to the Super Bowl will go through Seattle in January.
