The Athletic -- Rank: 5
Pete Carroll said the magic number is 50+ combined completions and rush attempts is what helps you win games.— Joe Fann (@Joe_Fann) December 2, 2020
He credits Vince Lombardi for that formula.
Carroll has built a great culture, and his teams play with great effort and energy. The Seahawks are 8-3 and in first place in the NFC West. Given their remaining schedule, they have a great shot at earning the top seed in the NFC and competing for a Super Bowl. But Carroll still has issues with game management, and the Seahawks' defense ranks 26th in DVOA. It sounds crazy to say this late in the season, but it still feels like the Seahawks are finding their identity.

USA Today -- Rank: 8
ESPN -- Rank: 6
In all likelihood, it's a three-team race for the NFC West crown between Seattle, the Rams and Arizona. Since the Seahawks have a two-game lead over Arizona and a split in the season series, the Rams look like their biggest challenger. They're one game behind the Seahawks, but beat Seattle at SoFi Stadium. The Seahawks should be heavily favored in their next three games (Giants, Jets, at Washington), while the Rams have three winnable games of their own over that stretch. That means they could still be within one game of each other when they meet at Lumen Field in the rematch. -- Brady Henderson
