Seahawks Crack Top 10 in NFL.Com Power Rankings
With Monday night exposure and an 8 sack performance by the defense, the Seahawks moved up 6 places in the NFL.com rankings.
It's been a while since the Seattle Seahawks have been ranked in the Top 10 in any of the various sports websites power rankings. This week after a wild Monday night game that has created a national controversy, the Seahawks are ranked at #10 by the leagues official website, NFL.com.
Elliot Harrison, an analyst for the NFL Network and NFL.com wrote:
The last play of the Seattle Seahawks' 14-12 "win" over the Green Bay Packers on Monday night will be recalled for years to come. Combine that with the bogus pass-interference call on Green Bay's Sam Shields -- not to mention a series of other questionable calls, including one on Seattle's Kam Chancellor -- and the overall result in the Great Northwest felt a wee bit unsatisfying, as a few folks have noted in the aftermath ...
Harrison went further:
OK, getting away from the play we've all seen 35,000 times by now, what a performance by the Seahawks' front seven, which dominated in the first half with eight sacks. Some of those guys push off better than Golden Tate, and that's really saying something. (Sorry, I can't help myself.)
In any case, it's good to see the Seahawks getting some recognition for a tough defense, and an offense led by a "Beast Mode" running game.
