Where the Seattle Seahawks Stand Heading into the Bye Week


As the Week 4 bye approaches, Arizona, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Seattle and St. Louis are all preparing for a week away from the field, but not away from the game.

With the extra rest, teams will take the time to recoup their bodies to full strength and watch additional film on their upcoming opponents.

For the Seahawks, this week is no different; they will fly around in practice, get a heavy dose of film study, and nurse their bodies back to full health.

Heading into the bye week, the Hawks sit in a favorable position — not only are they 2-1, but the (supposed) NFC contenders are nowhere to be found. The Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints and 49ers are all 1-2. All three were teams believed to be in contention for the NFC’s No. 1 seed heading into the postseason.

While the season has just begun, it is safe to say that each of these three have had their share of struggles and must adjust accordingly if they want to contend with the Seahawks for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
