What Had Happened Was: 12/16/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
The Seattle Seahawks are back in the postseason after the team’s 24-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday. Seattle has now claimed three of the last four NFC West titles and earned at least one home game in the playoffs.
The Detroit Lions still loom as a dark horse for the No. 2 seed in the NFC and a first-round bye, but with the win, the Seahawks ended a three-game skid against the Rams and also became the first team in the NFL to clinch its division.
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson tossed three touchdown passes while receiver Tyler Lockett hauled in one of those scores and amassed 130 yards receiving en route to Seattle’s victory.
On Dec. 3, their son, Charles Cole III, 33, posted a picture on Twitter of his folks in their caps and gowns. The cute picture has gotten a ton of attention online with a little help from a very sweet caption:
“My parents went back to college together and they graduated today. Together,” Cole wrote.
Super Mario Run is here. Rejoice.
