Zero interceptions this season.

For a team known and feared for its defense, the Seahawks defense has been very un-frightening so far this season. They’ve created only four turnovers, all of them fumble recoveries.

If the Seahawks want to compete with some of the best teams in the NFC (Green Bay and Arizona), they have to start creating turnovers. The offense tends to stall, and very rarely goes on long extended drives (unless they go uptempo).

Turnovers often equal wins. It’s as simple as that.

And if the Seahawks don’t start creating turnovers before facing legitimate teams like the Bengals, Panthers and Cardinals, they can kiss that Super Bowl berth goodbye.
