Seahawks jump to No. 2 in Touchdown Wire’s Week 14...


The Seattle Seahawks took over the NFC West lead and the No. 2 seed in the NFC after beating the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night.

For their efforts, they have also jumped all the way up to No. 2 in Touchdown Wire’s NFL power rankings entering Week 14.

“The Seahawks came into Monday Night Football against the Vikings with a 5-0 record in games decided by four points or less, and an average margin of victory of 5.4 in their nine wins,” writes Doug Farrar. “And given the fact that Seattle and Minnesota are about as similarly designed as two NFL teams can be, you knew this was going to be a tight one. Things went a bit off the rails with this bizarre pick-six for safety Anthony Harris off a Russell Wilson deflection.”

“But the Seahawks were able to swing back from that 14-7 deficit with the dual rushing attack of Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny, and Wilson’s own ability to exploit Minnesota’s vulnerable outside cornerbacks, especially Xavier Rhodes, in a 37-30 win,” Farrar continues. “Wilson didn’t advance his own MVP argument against Lamar Jackson (who may have the thing wrapped up at this point), but he did take back the lead in touchdown passes on the season from Jackson with his two on the night. Perhaps the most important thing for Pete Carroll’s team as they look to make a dent in the playoffs is a secondary that, aside from the occasional busted play, has shown a great deal of improvement in the second half of the season.”

The Seahawks continue their hunt to remain at the top of the NFC West with a contest against the division-rival Rams next Sunday on the road.
