Today's schedule and leftover game notes

Mike Holmgren has his day-after news conference at 2:15 this afternoon. I will have updates after that. The players have been given the day off, so they are not available until Wednesday. They also have Tuesday off, their regularly scheduled break.

Here are a few notes from Sunday's 30-23 victory over Chicago:

QB Matt Hasselbeck

His 30 completions tied for the second most of his career. The 337 passing yards marked his 15th-career 300-yard passing game, most in franchise history. Hasselbeck had 15 first-quarter passing attempts, second most of his career (16 last week versus SF). Hasselbeck now ranks third in the NFC with 17 TD passes, fifth with 2,638 passing yards and fourth in passer rating (91.3).

WR Bobby Engram

He was presented during pregame with the award for being named Seahawks Man of the Year by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. He went on to catch eight passes for his jersey number (84). He ranks fifth in the NFC in receptions (60) and yards (744). His best season in a Seahawks uniform came in 2005 when he caught 67 passes for 778 yards.
