Seahawks Still a Top 5 Team in Weekly NFL Power Rankings
Despite an 8-1 record and being undefeated at home, the Seattle Seahawks fell slightly in one of the latest NFL Power Rankings.
The Seahawks own the NFC's best record at 8-1, trailing only the 9-0 Chiefs for the NFL's best record. But with back to back difficult wins over lesser teams, Seattle has fallen a bit in NFL.com's rankings.
Pete Prisco at CBSSports.com still has the Seahawks at #2:
That was a heck of a comeback, but I am still concerned about that offense. They need their tackles back.
ESPN.com has the Seahwks at # 4:
They can't play like that again. Seattle was the second team to win this season with a minus-3 turnover margin. Teams with a minus-3 turnover margin are 2-19 this season.
At FoxsSports.com, former Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick also has the Seahawks in fourth place:
The Seahawks now have two pretty impressive come-from-behind victories on their resume this season. They climbed out of a 17-point deficit in Week 4 and then a 21-point deficit Sunday against the Bucs. What's concerning is that they had to come from behind.
At NFL.com, Elliott Harrison puts Seattle at #5:
Seahawks fans are going to blow up Twitter demanding respect. But what, might I ask, was impressive about Seattle's wins over the Titans, Rams or Bucs? Sure, Pete Carroll's team is resilient. The inconvenient truth, though, is that the Seahawks haven't played well for over a month, and Tampa Bay is downright lousy. And that near-miss came in a home game.
