Rookie TE John Carlson: With injuries to Hasselbeck and receivers Bobby Engram and Deion Branch, Seattle's passing game hasn't been the same this season. That has opened the door for Carlson, who leads the team in receptions (38) and receiving yards (456). Last week, Carlson recorded a season-high 105 yards on six receptions.
More Morris: Against Denver in Week 7, Morris rushed for 138 yards in the first half before leaving with a knee injury that sidelined him for the next three weeks. New England's leading rusher has been rusty since his return, but appeared more like his old self against a potent Pittsburgh run defense last week. Look for Morris to continue to improve against Seattle's 22nd-ranked run defense.
