The Seattle Seahawks are 6-1 for first time in franchise history after a convincing road in over the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football. I have to admit, coming into the season I wasn’t necessarily buying the Super Bowl hype. I wasn’t even sure that the Seahawks were the best team in their own division. But now here we are seven games in and there’s no doubt about it, the Seattle Seahawks are a very legitimate threat to go all the way.
With all that being said, a beatdown of the Cardinals is not really a statement win. However, it was a divisional road win. Good teams win the games they’re supposed to win and the Seahawks did it in convincing fashion. Russell Wilson continued to play smart football without turning the ball over and Marshawn Lynch was yet again in full on Beast Mode. These two players are the backbone of the Seattle offense and right now they’re about as reliable as it gets in the NFL.
The Seahawks’ defense also continued to live up to its reputation as the league’s best on Thursday night. The unit intercepted Carson Palmer twice and only allowed 234 total yards of offense.
The incredible and scary part about this 2013 Seahawks team is the fact that it’s still not fully healthy along the offensive line and Percy Harvin has yet to even take play a single down. Once this team is at full strength, the rest of the league better look out.
