After a slow start to the season the Seattle Seahawks look like their old dominant selves again.
The red hot Hawks have won 5 straight and 8 of their last 9 games.
The defense, led by the Legion of Boom have gotten their swagger back. They’ve gotten back to that hard hitting, smash mouth attitude which made them so special last year.
The Seahawks offense, led by Russell Wilson, is starting to become a very productive bunch. With Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch in the backfield doing what he does best and Wilson extending plays like no other QB in the game can, they look very hard to stop.
That’s not mentioning the fact that Russell Wilson to this point is 15th in overall rushing, which is insane for a QB.
In their last game against the Arizona Cardinals, who have one of the best defenses in the league, Seattle’s offense produced their highest yard total in franchise history at 596.
With Seattle beating Arizona Sunday, they can now clinch the division and lock up the 1st seed in the NFC with a win next week against St.Louis.
If they do indeed win next week the road to the Super Bowl will have to go through Century Link Field aka the 12th man, where the Seahawks are almost unbeatable.
Despite being done earlier this season by the Dallas Cowboys, the Cowboys didn’t play this Seattle team to date, as they were banged up with injuries on their defense and they just didn’t look like themselves at that point.
It also seems extremely unlikely that the reigning Super Bowl champs would let Dallas stroll into Seattle and beat them again.
With their swagger back and with both their defense and offense seemingly peaking a the right time the Seahawks look virtually unbeatable.
Also if they have home field advantage throughout the postseason, you might as well go ahead and punch their ticket to their second straight SuperBowl.
Are they better than last year? That has yet to be seen, but they do look just as dominant as they did a season ago when they made opposing teams have nightmares before games. That’s enough to know right there.
