Continuing our Veteran’s Day theme, today’s image of the day features Seattle Seahawks mascot Blitz saluting a group of US Marines in the stands behind him. The NFL honored veterans around the country this weekend, although whether a giant anthropomorphic blue bird is the best way to do that is up for debate.

What isn’t up for debate is that the Seahawks downed the New York Jets 28-7,  leaving the Jets in last place in the AFC East at 3-6. (And yes, as a Patriots fan, that brings this reporter great joy.)
