The Seahawks are now 25th in total offense (16th rush, 20th pass) and 19th in total defense (17th rush, 19th pass). Seattle ranks ninth in red-zone offense (.542) and 20th in red-zone defense. The red-zone defense has risen from 31st to 26th to 20th in recent weeks. That is a good sign for Seattle (and also a reflection of playing the 49ers). It's obvious Seattle does not have a dominant defense. But if the offense comes around and the defense plays its best in the red zone, Seattle can win games (and even playoff games, probably depending on venue). That was the formula the Seahawks used last season, when they had the NFL's second-ranked red-zone defense. Full league-wide rankings are here.
