RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Third downs have been a nightmare for the Seattle Seahawks.
Offensively, they've struggled to convert to keep drives alive. Defensively, they've allowed far too many conversions.
Coming off a 19-13 loss at St. Louis, the Seahawks are addressing their third-down struggles.
Seattle's offense has converted on just 28 percent of its third downs so far this season. In the last two weeks, the Seahawks are converting at just a 20 percent clip.
While the defense has been playing well - ranked second in the league in both yards and points per game - it has struggled to stop teams on third down. Against St. Louis, Seattle forced the Rams into eight third-and-long situations but allowed five to be converted. All five conversions kept drives alive that led to 16 of the Rams' 19 points for the game.
