Turnover Thursday has arrived at Virginia Mason Athletic Center, and the attention is on takeaways and giveaways during meetings and practice today.
And for good reason too. Not only are teams with a plus or even turnover margin 65-11 in games so far this season, but the Seahawks’ next opponent is very active in the turnover category. The Bears are tied for the league lead with 14 takeaways, but that stat is tempered by their 12 giveaways, which creates a middling +2 turnover margin.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks are tied for 14th in the NFL with eight takeaways, which, coupled with their nine giveaways, gives them a -1 turnover margin, tied for 16th in the league.
