Following the Seattle Seahawks’ 9-3 loss to the Los Angeles Rams Sunday, tight end Jimmy Graham was asked how he felt physically.
“Me? I feel fine,” Graham said. “I feel the same. I feel like a beast. So I’ll play more and more and get more and more opportunities. I just want to be there for my guys and be there for my team.”
Graham saw a big increase in snaps in Week 2. He was on the field for 82 percent of the team’s offensive plays (55 overall). In Week 1, he played just 17 snaps (21 percent overall).
He was targeted four times Sunday and caught three balls for 42 yards.
So, Wentz has thrown three more touchdowns than the Rams have scored as a team.
“We need more production out of our offense,” Fisher said. “All things point to the quarterback position, but I’m expecting Case to continue to get better in this offense, and we’re going to win games and score points.”
Parcells stamp of approval: The Patriots drafted 23-year-old Brissett out of North Carolina State in the third round of the 2016 draft with the 91st overall pick. Brissett came with a stamp of approval from former Patriots coach Bill Parcells, who saw Brissett during his high school days in Florida. Parcells told the Boston Herald, “[Brissett is] a Curtis Martin, Willie McGinest, Troy Brown type player. That’s the kind of guy he is. That’s what New England is getting. Those kinds, those Tedy Bruschi types, those players who’ve been successful — he’s very similar in his personal life to those kinds of guys.”
Originally a Gator: Brissett, a native of West Palm Beach, Florida, spent his first two collegiate seasons with the Florida Gators before transferring to North Carolina State (where he sat out the 2013 season). During his senior season, Brissett completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,662 yards with 20 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.
With Allen out two weeks ago, Woodhead totaled 120 yards from scrimmage against the Chiefs.
But like Allen, Woodhead went down with a knee injury, tearing his ACL in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
