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 3 roundup for the Seahawks in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 6

Fantasy surprise: WR Tyler Lockett

Lockett has been one of the NFL's best receivers since 2018, and he just earned a $69 million contract extension because of it. So, no one should be surprised that he is producing at a high level. But could anyone have expected this much production? Lockett's 278 receiving yards are four shy of Deebo Samuel's league lead, and the total easily broke Steve Largent's franchise record for the most by a Seahawk through two games. Two of Lockett's three touchdowns have been on catches of 60-plus yards. So Seattle's new-found emphasis on short and intermediate throws hasn't stopped Russell Wilson and Lockett from finding their usual success with the deep ball. -- Brady Henderson

NFL.com -- Rank: 9

The Seahawks had a 30-16 lead over the Titans after Freddie Swain zipped into the end zone with his 68-yard touchdown with 13:06 to play in the fourth quarter. This one felt like it was over -- but no one told the Titans, who reeled off the game's final 17 points in a stunning 33-30 overtime win in Seattle. Before Sunday, the Seahawks were 52-0 when leading by at least 15 points at home. Seattle let the lead slip away because the offense stalled and the defense lost its handle on Derrick Henry, who ran wild in the second half. Said Jamal Adams after the game: "Sometimes s--- just happens, man," Adams said. "... They executed, we didn't."

CBS Sports -- Rank: 15

That was a brutal home loss to the Titans as they blew a fourth-quarter lead. The defense just fell apart in the second half.

USA Today -- Rank: 13

Their early lack of balance is perfectly exemplified by Russell Wilson's ridiculous NFL-leading QB rating (146.9), and Seattle's last-place standing in the NFC West. Again, it's early. Very early.

The Athletic -- Rank: 8

That whole "Russell Wilson will accept trades to these teams" narrative seems like a long time ago. He threw for 343 yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans, an uncharacteristic fourth-quarter meltdown at home for Seattle. While Wilson could've done more in the final quarter and overtime, he's still one of the game's best -- he has six touchdowns and no picks two games into the season, and a passer rating of 146.9. The future of the Wilson-Seahawks marriage, though, still isn't set in stone.
