Seattle Seahawks Unanimous No.1 in NFL Power Rankings
Other teams are up, some are down, but Seattle remains the top team in the NFL this week.
Taking 11 first place votes, the Seahawks claim the No. 1 spot in the Associated Press Pro 32 rankings.
Pat Kirwan at CBSSports.com had this to say about the league’s best team.
The Seahawks have the best record, they just shut out the Giants on the road, and their next road game could be the Super Bowl.
The group of analysts at ESPN.com gave a look to the future.
A Week 16 win against the feisty Cardinals would present the Seahawks with an interesting question. Do you rest key starters in Week 17 with a two-week layoff between action?
At FoxSports.com, former Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick gave kudos to Seattle for the ability to win on the road.
Just beating the Giants on the road wouldn’t have been much to brag about, but completely shutting them out and doing it in the 1 p.m. ET time slot for a West Coast team is something to pat yourselves on the back about.
Finally, Elliott Harrison at NFL.com gave the Seahawks props for their suffocating defense.
There is no reason to move the lead dog out of the top spot. Not sure anyone has noticed yet, but the Seahawks have now overtaken the Panthers in a pretty important category: fewest points allowed. Seattle is No. 1, at 14.6 points per game.
