Seahawks Rise in NFL Power Rankings

With their decisive win over San Francisco Sunday night, the Seattle Seahawks are on (or near) the top of this week’s NFL Power Rankings.

After beating the 49ers last Sunday in front of a national TV audience, the Seahawks are almost unanimously in the number one spot this week.

Pete Prisco at CBSsports.com has the Seahawks behind the Denver Broncos, but says:

At home, they are downright nasty. That brutal beating of the 49ers serves notice to the rest of the league.

 

The group at ESPN.com tells us:

The Seahawks have allowed a league-low 10 points this season against offenses led by Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick. Hosting the Jaguars Sunday might get ugly.

 

NFL.com agrees:

The Seattle Seahawks finally proved it Sunday night. Seahawks fans have lambasted the Power Rankings for failing to put their team on top. But the Seahawks have not gotten out of the divisional round in the Pete Carroll era, and they were missing two of their best pass rushers in Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin. So this space had been patiently keeping them at third. That said, they have now dominated the San Francisco 49ers in back-to-back games — and, had their receivers caught anything the last time the team traveled to San Francisco, Sunday’s victory might have been their third in a row over their Bay Area rivals. While it’s scary to think that this defense will still be adding Clemons and Irvin, the Richard Sherman-led secondary is so doggone good, I’m not sure it matters.
