Seattle Seahawks: Week 16 NFL Power Rankings (#6)

Record: 9-5

Net points per drive: 0.77 (3rd)

DVOA: 38.5% (2nd)

Weighted DVOA: 44.8% (2nd)

Seattle is in an interesting spot as well. Like Green Bay, I’m torn on them, whereas the 5 teams ahead of them on this list I’m less torn on. Seattle might be playing better than anyone right now and I fully expect them to beat the 49ers in Seattle this week, but can you really trust a team that lost to Arizona, St. Louis, Miami, and Detroit on the road to go into Washington and win a playoff game, let alone into San Francisco, Green Bay, or Atlanta. If they had been able to get the #2 seed, I’d like their Super Bowl chances better, because they’d only have to play 1 road playoff game in that scenario, at most, but thanks to the 49ers’ win in New England, the only way that happens is if the 49ers somehow lose at home to the Cardinals.
