The Seahawks are arriving into this game with three consecutive wins to open the season. The last two wins have been stunning, thumping off the Patriots and the Cowboys. The Dolphins appear to be finding their place in this early part of the season, scoring 31 points over Jacksonville last week.
Chris Carson will play
Seattle’s running back Chris Carson was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game, but is predicted to start against the Miami Dolphins, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Seahawks’ RB Chris Carson, listed as questionable for Sunday with an ankle injury, is expected to play against the Dolphins, per source. RB Carlos Hyde, also questionable Sunday with a shoulder injury, will be a pre-game decision.

Carson endured what coach Pete Carroll called a first-degree knee strain following a gator-roll tackle by Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill in last week’s event, for which Hill was fined $6,522. Carson was a full partaker in practice this week; however, it was limited during the previous two days.
Stopping the seahawks
How will Miami decide to maintain the Seahawks’ vertical passing game? The way Russell Wilson is playing and the relationship with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett downfield has been impressive. Wilson is pressing opposing teams into difficult decisions. Suppose Miami assigns more resources downfield by combining deep-zone looks or adding an extra defensive back to the blend to slow down the deep ball. The Seahawks could try to respond with a run-heavy attack like the beast mode days. Coach Brian Flores will need a big performance from his secondary to knock off Seattle.
