The Seattle Seahawks are trying their best to stay afloat in the playoff race - and in the Power Rankings.
The Seattle Seahawks aren't the same team they were to start the season. But is it too late?
The Seahawks faithful are still clinging to hope that it isn't and the nation's Power Rankings differ in opinion on just how much the Seahawks should be bumped up in terms of their standing in the rest of the league.
CBS Sportsline moved the Seahawks up two spots to no. 16 and credited their defense for turning their season around. But they don't see it being enough to get them in the playoffs though next season could be a good one.
ESPN jumped the Seahawks up a whole five spots to no. 15 and for once, the quarterback play got some due as Tarvaris Jackson has thrown three touchdown passes without a pick during the Seahawks current three-game win streak.
SBNation moved up one spot to no. 19. Simply: too little, too late.
