Seahawks Remain Top Ten Team in Latest NFL Power Rankings
Even with a revitalized ground game and a decisive win over the New York Giants, the Seattle Seahawks remained in the upper third of the latest Power Rankings.
Elliott Harrison at NFL.com puts Seattle at No. 7.
Tweeted this on Sunday, and I'll say it again: Marshawn Lynch is the most entertaining power back to watch since Earl Campbell. When his touchdown plunge put Seattle up 24-17 in the fourth quarter, you could just feel the crowd get energized. Not sure there is another running back like him in the game today. His lateral moves are awesome for a guy who runs with such brute force.
At CBS Sports, Pete Prisco has the Seahawks at # 8, but has some concerns.
They got that running game cranked up against the Giants, which is the identity of this team. The quarterback still runs too much.
His colleague at CBS Sports, Pat Kirwan also puts Seattle at No. 8.
The Seattle running game is downright scary right now and it will have to carry the team until the defense gets healthy. A trip to Kansas City this week will be a real test.
At Fox Sports, Dan Schneier ranks the Seahawks at No. 10.
With top two offensive linemen Russell Okung and Max Unger back, the Seahawks’ ground game was reborn. Going forward, this rushing attack can lead anchor the offense.
