2021 NFL Power Rankings: Seattle Seahawks

Throughout the 2021 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:

Below you will find a Week 13 roundup for the Seahawks in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 28

At 3-8 with a broken offense and a 1% chance to make the playoffs, according to ESPN's Football Power Index, not much is inspiring confidence with the Seahawks. They couldn't finish on offense against the Rams when Geno Smith replaced an injured Russell Wilson, then the same thing happened in their two losses with Smith as starter. The thought then was how much they were missing Wilson, one of the NFL's best closers. But their offense has been just as bad since his return from finger surgery, scoring only 28 combined points in three straight losses. Wilson said his finger is fine and there's no rust, but he is missing throws he usually doesn't miss. Their defense is playing well, but that's not enough to rescue this lost season. -- Brady Henderson

NFL.com -- Rank: 26

It's all over now. The Seahawks had one last chance to pump some life into their cursed season with a prime-time win over the Washington Football Team, but it ended up being more of the same: Russell Wilson struggled with accuracy, Seattle couldn't run the ball, DK Metcalf was entirely detached from the game plan and OC Shane Waldron couldn't make the necessary adjustments in a 17-15 loss. The conversation will now begin to shift to the future: Should Waldron return for a second season? Has Pete Carroll worn out his welcome? Does it make sense to actually entertain trading Wilson away? Does Wilson want to be here? Sleepless in Seattle, indeed.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 25

They are done. This season is over. They can't make the playoffs, which begs the question about what changes are coming.

USA Today -- Rank: 24

Appropriate time to thank the NFL for "flexing" its muscle so we don't have to watch Seattle in prime time in successive weeks.

The Athletic -- Rank: 26

Problem area: The entire offense, one of the most disappointing units in all of the NFL this season. Monday's performance was an abomination: Seattle had just five first downs before its final offensive possession began with 2:19 remaining, and 96 of its 267 total yards came on that one drive. The Seahawks cannot consistently move the ball; they can't run it, as Pete Carroll would prefer; and Russell Wilson isn't hitting the deep, explosive plays the way he'd like. There is no easy fix here, and Seattle is facing some major questions as a result.
