Several readers have asked for more detailed information on the Seahawks' third-down defense this season. I've been able to put together down-and-distance conversion rates on both sides of the ball, breaking it down by play selection as well. These are pretty slick. The charts show how much more frequently Seattle runs on third down; Seattle has run 19 times on third down, compared to five times for opponents. The Giants, for instance, called pass plays on each of their nine third-down chances against the Seahawks. Charts below.
