SEATTLE: The Seahawks are well-versed in zone blocking after a year under current offensive line coach Tom Cable, one of the best zone-blocking coaches in the game. They play a lot of two-tight end and three-receiver sets and do a lot of inside zone runs with Marshawn Lynch, who will continue to get a mammoth workload. Change-of-pace back Leon Washington will occasionally spell Lynch on passing downs, taking about a third of the reps, and rookie Robert Turbin is expected to be used on only a handful of snaps as long as Lynch is able to remain healthy. Seattle is run-heavy near the goal line: Lynch will again have a huge role in the red zone, as Seattle was one of four teams to run it more than 60 percent of the time in goal-to-go situations. The Seahawks run a West Coast offense similar to the one QB Matt Flynn played in at Green Bay. Seattle uses a lot of three-WR sets, and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell was able to open things up for slot receiver Doug Baldwin. Split end Sidney Rice is more of a perimeter threat in this offense, and Golden Tate has a chance for an increased number of targets at flanker. Tight end Zach Miller ended up being a bit redundant with Baldwin in the middle of the field, which is why his numbers were down. Miller's contributions are not expected to increase now that he'll be splitting reps with Kellen Winslow. Although their 2011 leading tackler LB David Hawthorne is now in New Orleans, the Seahawks should remain an above-average defense. They finished fourth in the NFL with 22 interceptions (Brandon Browner had six) and made huge improvements in both yards allowed and scoring defense in 2011. One of the reasons was the play of DL Chris Clemons, who after floundering for several different teams has found a home in Seattle with back-to-back 11-sack seasons'there's little reason to believe the explosive DE won't reach double figures again in 2012. Safety Kam Chancellor is an elite in-the-box run-stuffer who even plays some linebacker on passing downs. He's also good enough in coverage that he's not a liability when opponents decide to pass the ball. Chancellor forms one of the NFL's best young safety tandems with Earl Thomas, who draws comparisons to Troy Polamalu due to his athleticism and exceptional instincts.
MIAMI: The Dolphins will have a different look under new head coach Joe Philbin, as his West Coast offense figures to emphasize short catch-and-run plays rather than the between-the-tackles running to set up the pass that Miami has used in recent years. The running game itself will undergo a big change as they transition to a zone-blocking scheme. Reggie Bush has some experience in it, as the Saints sprinkled in zone plays during his time there. Daniel Thomas gets a fresh slate and has the tools (especially pass protection and receiving) to thrive in the new system. Neither Bush nor Thomas is a true short-yardage back, though Bush figures to get the first crack at the role. With the West Coast roots of Philbin and new offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, expect this year's attack to be much more catch-and-run, which suits rookie QB Ryan Tannehill even if veteran Matt Moore holds him off early. Brandon Marshall is gone and slot man Davone Bess figures to be a major beneficiary stat-wise. The backs and TE Anthony Fasano will play a bigger role in the receiving game as well, with Fasano serving as a target near the goal line on play-action. Brian Hartline and Chad Ochocinco figure to be targeted rarely. Fullback/H-back Charles Clay is a part-time player but should be in for an increase in reps and targets. He could end up surpassing Fasano in receiving numbers. Miami excelled in stopping the run in 2011, and wound up placing third in the NFL with 95.6 rushing YPG allowed. Although the defense did not markedly improve in its offense-focused draft, the Dolphins signed CB Richard Marshall and should remain capable of stopping opposing offenses that don't possess the passing game of a team like New England. Miami is switching to a 4-3 and Karlos Dansby will be the key to maintaining the team's performance against the run as its middle linebacker. Dansby's best years, however, came playing in a 3-4, making the move a bit of a risk.

*Seahawks-Dolphins Preview* ===========================


The Seattle Seahawks have been one of the best home teams in the NFL. If they want to parlay their best start since 2007 into a playoff appearance, however, they'll likely need to play more consistently on the road.

They can start Sunday when they visit a Miami Dolphins team looking to avoid its fourth straight loss.

Seattle has won two in a row coming out of its bye and is 6-4 for the first time since its last 10-win season in 2007, but its 1-4 road mark leaves much to be desired. The road losses have come by a combined 21 points.

"Disappointed in the way we've played on the road that we didn't find a way to get a couple more of those wins," coach Pete Carroll said. "We've been in every one of them. We understand all of that.

"I think we're getting harder to beat."

The Seahawks' last two away games are against Chicago next week and Buffalo on Dec. 16.

Carroll gave his players the entire bye week off after a team meeting last Monday, but he and his staff are still trying to eliminate some deficiencies, one of them on defense.

Seattle ranks third in the league with 296.8 yards allowed per game, but opponents are converting 40.6 percent of their third downs. The Seahawks showed improvement in their last two games, holding Minnesota and New York to a combined five of 21 on third downs.

"For as good as we can defense at times to be at 40 percent, that's not good enough for us," Carroll said. "We need to knock that thing down."

The Dolphins (4-6) have numerous problems, having lost three in a row after looking like a possible playoff team through the first seven games. An ineffective running game and turnovers have been the biggest factors in the slide.

After Reggie Bush's hot start - he ran for 241 yards the first two weeks - the Dolphins haven't rushed for 100 in a game since September. Bush has averaged 3.0 yards per carry in his last six contests.

The Miami offense has accounted for one touchdown over the last 10 quarters.

"The running game hasn't been effective lately," guard Richie Incognito said. "That puts a lot of pressure on the rest of the offense. We know we have to get the running game going and execute better. It comes down to guys winning one-on-one blocks."

Ryan Tannehill has been at the center of the Dolphins' failure to take care of the ball. Miami has turned it over seven times in the last two games, five on Tannehill interceptions.

"It's really frustrating," said Tannehill, whose 70.8 passer rating ranks 30th in the league. "Especially with some of the success we had earlier in the year being able to move the ball."

A Miami run defense that suddenly appears vulnerable could be taken advantage of by Seattle's Marshawn Lynch. The Dolphins allowed 83.9 rushing yards per game through their first eight, but 148.5 in the last two.

Lynch is second in the NFL with 1,005 rushing yards and has reached the 100 mark in four consecutive games, including back-to-back season highs of 124 yards in the past two contests.

Seattle should be healthier after the bye, as 13 players were listed on the team's final injury report before their last game. Only guard James Carpenter was unable to practice Monday as he continues to undergo tests for a concussion suffered three weeks ago.

The Dolphins won the teams' last meeting in 2008 in Miami, 21-19.
