A quick look at the Week 17 Power Rankings for the Seattle Seahawks next game vs. Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks who were climbing the rankings for weeks on end, took a massive drop after a loss at home to the St. Louis Rams. The Arizona Cardinals are atop many power ranking polls and hold the number #1 spot for ESPN this week.
Seattle Seahawks Power Rank Number:
- ESPN POWER RANKING # 10
- SEATTLE SPORTSCAST # 5
- The Seahawks lost 3 spots last week with the loss to the Rams. Injuries took its toll on the Hawks last week and it showed. The Rams always play division opponents tough and games with them are physical & close. The Seahawks down to backup running backs and Russell Okung out last week, led to some inconsistency on offense. The Seahawks can compete with any team and the Rams just seem to happen. They have from the beginning of the Pete Carroll era. Sunday will tell the tale of where the Seahawks stand as far as rankings goes. Injuries maybe too much to overcome Sunday but don't put anything past the Seahawks.
Arizona Cardinals Power Rank Number:
- ESPN POWER RANKING #1
- SEATTLE SPORTSCAST #3
- The Cardinals are no doubt one of the most complete teams in NFL but they still need to prove it before I give them a #1 spot. They haven't exactly done much in the playoffs of late and we'll see if they can hold their own against the Seahawks, who will have it out for them Sunday. Both the Patriots and the Panthers both have a better resume for now.
