The Seattle Seahawks had a phenomenal defensive performance in their Week 4 against the Giants on MNF. Thanks to a great job from the Seahawks pass rush which tallied a season-high 11 sacks. Seven different Seahawks players recorded at least one sack and four of them had two sacks. Devon Witherspoon earned Defensive Player of the Week honors for collecting two sacks and an interception return for a touchdown.

Although the Seahawks' defense led the way in the 24-3 beat down of the Giants, the Seahawks' offense looked a bit disjointed. Geno Smith was banged up during the game and had to leave the game in the first half, before returning at the start of the second half.

Geno was just 13 for 20 on pass attempts and threw for 110 yards with one touchdown pass. The Seahawks' running backs played well as Seattle rushed for over 121 yards. Kenneth Walker led the way with 79 yards rushing and a touchdown on 17 carries.

These three Seattle Seahawks could be set up for a huge game in Week 6

The Seahawks face a new challenge in Week 6 against the Bengals. Cincinnati is coming off their best performance of the season in a 34-20 win over the Cardinals in Week 5. Joe Burrow was 36/46 on pass attempts and threw for 317 yards, three touchdowns, with one interception. The Bengals defense was able to force three turnovers and created 10 points off those turnovers which included a pick-six of Cardinals QB Josh Dobbs.

Certainly, the Bengals will be a much tougher road opponent then the Seahawks faced in Week 4. The Seahawks will need to play a complete game if they are going to win on Sunday. Who will be the key difference makers for the Seahawks in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals?
