Fortunately, the Seahawks’ defense has stepped up. They scored against New Orleans and played an incredible game in Arizona to earn a tie. With their excellent defense and mediocre offense, the Seahawks still sit atop the NFC West division at 4-2-1. The second-place Rams are still led by Case Keenum, and the Cardinals have yet to wake up and play consistently this year.
Remember where we were last year around this time, when the Seahawks dug themselves a hole and spent the entire second half of the season climbing furiously out. This year, their defense has kept them in games and they’ve been able to take a few close ones, such as the 12-10 victory against Miami in Week One.
Now the Seahawks have to play like the game is on the line every down.
