Rushing Yards Don’t Come Easy Against The Seahawks
Last season the Seahawks proved that running the football and being able to defend against the run is a solid recipe for winning the Super Bowl.
We’ve already discussed how Seattle’s ground game is the best in the NFL. Now it’s time to give the defense some props.
If you can run against the Seahawks, you have a chance at beating them. The Cowboys proved that earlier in the season and the Chiefs proved that again yesterday with Jamaal Charles‘ performance.
Even with those two games, Seattle still ranks seventh in the NFL in limiting opponents rushing plays. The Seahawks give up just over 90 yards-per-game on the ground. Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane is lost for the season but the Seahawks are expected to get linebacker Bobby Wagner back. His presence will help prevent what happened in Kansas City yesterday when Charles was able to run up the middle for huge gains.
So there you have it. Four damn good reasons why the Seahawks will be in the playoffs. Do you agree? Let me know in the comments if I left out anything and what YOU think of their chances the rest of the way.
Thanks for reading and GO HAWKS!!!
