RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Buried within the dizzying numbers the Seattle Seahawks have posted the last three weeks that grabbed the attention of the entire NFL, is a steady rise in efficiency that's at the base of their high-scoring, late-season charge with wins in six of their last seven games.
It may sound like what coaches and players say all the time, but Seattle's has been dramatically better on third-down conversions and in the red zone as the season has progressed.
Seattle is 24 of 24 in converting red zone possessions over the past six games. The last time they failed to score on a drive inside the opponents' 20 was in Week 9 against Minnesota when the Seahawks took a knee and ran out the clock at the Vikings' 9.
They're also coming off converting 11 of 13 on third downs last week versus San Francisco, the highest conversion rate in the NFL this season.
