Among the offensive starters the Seattle Seahawks can least afford to lose, left tackle Russell Okung, reliable guardian of a right-handed passer’s blind side, ranks just behind quarterback Russell Wilson.

Running back Marshawn Lynch inspires enough adjectives to fill a thesaurus page, but “indispensable” is not one of them. For all the lightning seen Sunday at CenturyLink Field, little of it was supplied by the wide receivers: Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Sidney Rice combined for three receptions during the Seahawks 29-3 victory against San Francisco. And despite Zach Miller’s timely emergence as a go-to target during last season’s playoffs, let’s not forget the tight end has averaged about two catches a game since his 2011 arrival as a free agent.
