Seahawks Rebound Slightly in Latest NFL Power Rankings
Sunday's big win over Arizona gave the Seattle Seahawks a little bump in this week's NFL power rankings.
Dan Schneier at Fox Sports gives the Seahawks the highest rating at No. 6 this week.
The Seahawks are beginning to patch up some of their key issues on the offensive line, but their defense heads into December a notch below where it was this time of the year against both the run and pass.
The analysts at ESPN see Seattle as the No. 7 team.
Russell Wilson was 11-of-13 for 153 yards against at least five pass-rushers Sunday. He was 5-of-14 against the Cardinals' blitz in the Seahawks' home loss to Arizona last season.
At CBS Sports, Pete Prisco has some questions, but puts the Seahawks at No. 8.
The offense still isn't clicking, but that defense came alive against the Cardinals. Now comes the big one at San Francisco Thursday night.
At NFL.com, Elliott Harrison has Seattle at No. 9.
While it's still worrisome that Seattle's offense relies so much on Russell Wilson's legs (over 70 yards rushing for the third straight week), that was a huge win Sunday. Is it fair to say the bully is back, Seahawks fans? Or is that too fair weather?
Finally at CBS Sports, Pat Kirwan still has the Seahawks in the second 10 at No. 14.
The Seahawks are figuring out defense without Brandon Mebane and the 19-3 win over the Cardinals is a solid start on a run back to the playoffs. A short week with a Thanksgiving Day game in San Francisco will be a very big test. Russell Wilson is 0-2 in San Francisco with one passing touchdown and just 12 yards rushing.
