2020 NFL Power Rankings: Seattle Seahawks
Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.
Here is where the Seattle Seahawks rank in terms of average, best and worst:
- Average ranking: 7.8 (7th)
- Best ranking: 6th (CBS Sports)
- Worst ranking: 10th (The Athletic)
Below you will find a Week 15 roundup for the Seahawks in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.
The Athletic -- Rank: 10
They have made a habit of making first-round picks that drive analytics heads nuts. Linebacker Jordyn Brooks at No. 27 was no exception. Brooks has not played a significant role for Seattle during his rookie season. He's appeared in 11 games and played 29 percent of the defensive snaps. Pete Carroll praised Brooks for his 11-tackle performance in Week 13, but Brooks is unlikely to see an expanded role, given how well Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright have played. With their 40-3 win over the Jets, the Seahawks have the same record as the Rams atop the NFC West.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 6
They got back on track against a bad Jets team after losing to a so-so Giants team at home. Now they face a tough road game against Washington.
USA Today -- Rank: 9
Nice weekend for Russell Wilson, who set a Seattle single-season record with his 36th TD pass while becoming first quarterback in the Super Bowl era (since 1966) to win at least nine games in each of his first nine seasons.
ESPN -- Rank: 7
Russell Wilson was the MVP front-runner for much of the first half of the season, which the Seahawks needed, with their defense getting gashed at a historic rate. Seattle is still second in offensive scoring, even with Wilson coming back down to earth. Seattle's defense has turned things around, albeit against some dreadful offenses. After Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets, that group has allowed only 14.5 points per game the past four contests (fourth fewest in that span), about half as many points as it allowed in the first nine. Seattle's special teams have been strong the whole time, led by Jason Myers going 18-for-18 on field goal tries. -- Brady Henderson
NFL.com -- Rank: 7
The Seahawks had a grand old time at the expense of the lowly Jets, dominating the NFL's only winless team on both sides of the ball in a 40-3 win. Russell Wilson played a game of catch with his receivers, who ran like gazelles through wide-open spaces. On defense, Jamal Adams made history against his old team, setting the NFL sack record for defensive backs (he's up to 8.5). About the only thing the defense didn't do well was catch the ball -- Adams was unable to pull in a ball fired right into his chest, one of three would-be picks by Sam Darnold that landed harmlessly on the turf. The Seahawks remain tied with the Rams atop the NFC West, with a challenging Week 15 tilt against the Washington Football Team up next.
