Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

Randall Cobb

5. Seattle Seahawks (LW: 7)

It has been stated many times in the past weeks, but it is worth repeating after the Seahawks’ back-to-back divisional wins — Seattle’s schedule featuring five division games in its final six weeks is a massive benefit to the team’s NFC West title push. Seattle is now playing their best football when it matters the most and have likely knocked the 49ers out of the hunt while bearing down on the Cardinals. Seattle will get their opportunity to further improve their title hopes when they travel to Arizona in a few weeks. Between now and then, however, the 8-4 Seahawks will have to play in Philadelphia and host a revenge-hungry 49ers team in the next two weeks. If the Seahawks are truly capable of repeating as Super Bowl Champions, they will, once again, have to pass these tests.
