The match also saw Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson being forced off through a hamstring injury in the 80th minute. He said: "Maybe they appreciate the fans more than the result, because the fans were top for them".


Starting tight end Will Dissly's promising start to his second season was derailed by an Achilles injury, his second season-ending injury in as many years, while veteran Ed Dickson missed the entire year due to injury.

The Astros ended up winning the world championship in a back-and-forth series that culminated in a Game 7 at Dodger Stadium. "I feel like every single guy over there needs a beating", said the 36-year-old heading into his 15th season.


The 34-year-old Olsen chose the Seahawks after visiting with the Buffalo Bills and former coach Ron Rivera, now with the Washington Redskins. Seattle is one of the teams with the most cap space this offseason, so this is just the first move in what is expected to be a busy free agency for the Seahawks. Both the Bills and Washington have coaches who he worked with at Carolina, leading some to consider one of those two as the favorite as well as the fact that Olsen's career has also been in Chicago or Carolina. As The News Tribune's Gregg Bell points out, Olsen falls in line with the sort of affordable deals the Seahawks have a history of making with veterans.

"He's killing the rehab", Carroll said. He's been around a lot. There's no question he will. Ultimately, Olsen thought the Seahawks give him the best chance to win a Super Bowl in 2020. And because the Panthers cut Olsen a couple of weeks ago, rather than pay $11.6 million in the final year of his contract, he was available immediately - plus the Seahawks will not have to surrender a compensatory draft pick in 2021.
