Minnesota goes into Seattle on Monday night and will face the No. 1 rushing offense in the NFL this season. The Seahawks average 148.8 yards per game this season. Rookie running back Rashaad Penny is coming on late in his debut season, but Chris Carson leads Seattle's running game.
Carson has 704 rushing yards this season and has caught the Vikings' attention. Coach Mike Zimmer said that Carson is one of the league's best backs this season and Minnesota's defenders are preparing to slow Carson.
