Wake and Suh have combined for 106 ½ sacks since 2010. … SS Reshad Jones was only player in NFL last season with more than 100 tackles, five or more interceptions and two or more sacks. … Seahawks have won at least 10 games in four straight seasons. … Seahawks opening at home for second time since 2011.
