Seahawks' Chris Carson: Carries for 102 yards, score

Carson rushed 23 times for 102 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 37-30 win over the Vikings. He also caught one of two targets for seven yards.

There were obvious concerns about his workload following Week 12's win over the Eagles, in which he fumbled twice in the fourth quarter and was out-touched by Rashaad Penny. Carson got the start Monday, however, and extinguished those worries early by firing out of the gate with a nine-yard rush. Coach Pete Carroll was planning on a timeshare and Penny received carries on the first drive as well, while both had productive nights with the latter reaching 107 yards from scrimmage and scoring twice. This is shaping up to be a split backfield moving forward, although the duo's 43 combined touches in this one will likely prove to be an anomaly. The Seahawks travel to Los Angeles for a matchup against the Rams' middling run defense (104.2 rushing yards allowed per game).
