With their domination of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks rise once again to the summit of the NFL power rankings.

At CBS Sports, Pete Prisco has the Seahawks at No. 1. He says it will be bad for teams that come into Seattle for the playoffs. He also, begrudgingly, gives props to quarterback Russell Wilson.

By beating the Rams this week, the NFC playoffs will go through Seattle. That will be brutal for any visiting team.


Dan Schneier at Fox Sports puts Seattle on top.

Beast Mode plowing people again and Russell Wilson continuing to make chunk yardage plays with his feet. That’s about all the Seahawks will need from their offense with the way their defense is attacking right now.


At NFL.com, Elliott Harrison says Seattle is No.1.

That was nothing short of championship football we all witnessed Sunday night. Seattle darn near played a perfect second half. Steven Hauschka's missed kicks aside, it is becoming increasing difficult to foresee a team knocking off the defending champs. If we had to nitpick anything, it would be all the penalties -- maybe someone could show Michael Bennett the neutral zone. (It's that area of space between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, as set forth by the Organian Peace Treaty.)


The Associated Press has Pete Carroll's team ranked No. 1 in its AP Pro 32 Poll.


The panel of experts at ESPN.com put the Seahawks at No. 2 behind the Patriots.

Richard Sherman's interception Sunday night was the 24th of his career, most of any player since he entered the league in 2011. Seattle is heating up at the right time.
