Seahawks in the thick of tight NFC race

By FPI's measure, Seattle's odds to make the playoffs remain ahead of Atlanta's despite Monday's loss. That said, the Seahawks' chances dropped 17 percentage points this week, and their shot at the NFC West slipped slightly despite the Rams' loss.

Should the Seahawks have blitzed more?

Seattle bothered Matt Ryan with a few blitzes Monday night, but the Hawks mostly used a standard rush. Ryan was barely pressured by four or fewer rushers, letting him take advantage of the Seahawks' coverage on such plays.

Pete Carroll said on 710 ESPN Seattle that the Seahawks will likely have an update on strong safety Kam Chancellor early this week. Chancellor missed Monday night's game with a neck injury and he's likely to miss the rest of the season, according to ESPN and NFL Network reports.

Injury updates from Pete Carroll on his 710 ESPN Seattle radio show: running back Mike Davis is unlikely to play Sunday after suffering a groin strain Monday night. Right guard Oday Aboushi suffered a dislocated shoulder and will be out this week. Left guard Luke Joeckel has a good chance to be back after missing the last five games following knee surgery. Carroll wasn't sure about cornerback Shaquill Griffin, who suffered a concussion vs. Atlanta.

Injuries in the secondary have Seattle's defense looking mortal while kicker Blair Walsh has made only three of his past eight field goal attempts. The Seahawks can still be a dangerous team, but they're trending the wrong way.

Pete Carroll said of the Seahawks' unsuccessful fake field goal at the end of the first half, "It would have been a really good call if we made it." Carroll said that, at worst, the Seahawks felt Luke Willson could have run out of bounds to stop the clock and give Seattle a closer look at a field goal, but he saw it as a chance to score a touchdown.

Pete Carroll called it a groin strain that led to running back Mike Davis exiting for good in the third quarter. Davis, who was cut by San Francisco over the offseason, vowed to be ready in time to face his former team on Sunday. Carroll confirmed cornerback Shaquill Griffin suffered a concussion and said right guard Oday Aboushi "banged his shoulder pretty good." He didn't know the extent of Aboushi's injury.

Blair Walsh said he was too worried kicking the ball straight and didn't drive it enough on his 52-yard attempt, which fell short to seal Atlanta's win. "That side of the stadium is definitely tricky and I wanted to make sure it was straight so it went through, but I need to probably drive it obviously more, and I didn't," he said. Walsh added: "It's tough when you're not there for your team in a moment like that, but I keep working my tail off and committing to what I'm doing. I was happy with everything else that I did in the game, so it's tough that the last play is what it comes down to, but that's part of football."
