Seahawks’ Brandon Browner makes up for last game

Published on December 5, 2011 by     

Brandon Browner has stood out in Seattle’s secondary the past two weeks, and not just because he’s 6 feet 4.

On Sunday against Washington, he was the man in coverage on the 50-yard touchdown pass from Rex Grossman to Anthony Armstrong that turned out to be the game-winning score.

“I really felt bad,” Browner said. “I really felt like I lost the game for us last week. I learned from it.”

Yes, he did, and Thursday against Philadelphia, Browner stood out for a very different reason: He picked off Philadelphia’s Vince Young twice, becoming the first Seahawk to intercept two passes in more than a year.

Long way to TD

Linebacker David Hawthorne had a clear path to the end zone after his fourth-quarter interception.

It wasn’t quite the perfect scenario, though.

“In my dreams, I usually only run like 20 yards,” Hawthorne said.

Thursday he had to run 77 after stepping in front of Philadelphia’s LeSean McCoy and outrunning everyone to the end zone. Hawthorne was a game-time decision because of a sore knee, and he didn’t know if he would be able to play until he worked out before the game.

Turnover a new leaf

“Turnover Thursday” is the designation Seattle uses during its normal practice schedule. The Seahawks carried that theme into Thursday’s game against the Eagles.

Seattle intercepted the Eagles’ Vince Young four times, the Seahawks committed no turnovers and for the first time this season they had a positive turnover margin of plus four.

“This is turnover Thursday for us anyway when we practice,” coach Pete Carroll said. “So the fact we got a whole bunch of them tonight is a really big deal to us.”

Chris cross

Defensive end Chris Clemons was playing against the team that traded him to Seattle. He played for the Eagles in 2008 and 2009.

Seattle acquired Clemons and a fourth-round pick in exchange for Darryl Tapp last year, and as a Seahawk, Clemons has emerged as the team’s most dangerous pass rusher with 19 sacks in 28 starts. He said there wasn’t any extra motivation in facing his former employer.

“Just going out and doing my job like I do every week,” Clemons said, “trying to help my team win a game. There was no extra motivation from that team. It was all business for me. I never took it personal. It was the best thing they ever did for me.”

Clemons had three tackles. One play brought him to the Eagles sideline in pursuit, and it appeared he shouted directly in front of Eagles coach Andy Reid.
