Seahawks Rise to Top of NFL Power Rankings
At 10-1, with the NFL’s best record, the Seattle Seahawks claim the top spot in two of this week’s NFL power rankings.
The Seahawks took the #1 spot in this week’s Associated Press Pro 32 Power Rankings for the first time this season.
At CBSSports.com, Pete Prisco also has Seattle at #1:
They are the first team to 10 victories and have the inside track to the No. 1 seed in the NFC. They will be tough to beat at home.
ESPN has the Seahawks at #2 behind the Denver Broncos:
Seattle has looked scary for a few weeks, but even scarier was the potential impact Percy Harvin flashed on his 58-yard kickoff return. The hip looked pretty healthy there.
Brian Billick at FoxSports.com also has Seattle behind Denver:
Russell Wilson is 13-0 at home in his career and won his 21st game overall on Sunday. He is tied with Dan Marino and just one shy of Ben Roethlisberger for the most wins in the first two seasons of a career.
Finally, Elliott Harrison at NFL.com also has the Seahawks at #2:
Now this is the Seahawks team we’ve been waiting to see. The Seattle defense has imposed its will two weeks in a row, including on Sunday; the unit did a bang-up job stifling Adrian Peterson (65 yards) while scoring points of its own. The second spot isn’t a bad one to be in.
