Burress' suspension helps Seattle

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The Seahawks have had a hard time matching up against elite receivers this season. Lee Evans and Isaac Bruce beat them for big plays. Plaxico Burress' suspension for the Seahawks-Giants game in Week 5 comes as good news for Seattle.

Cornerback Kelly Jennings has been playing with a broken rib. He's a smaller corner and vulnerable to giving up plays against bigger receivers, even when Jennings is in position. Not having to worry about Burress improves Seattle's chances, no question.
