2012 NFL Power Rankings Week 13: Seahawks take a dive

Mike Ehrmann

The collapse against the Miami Dolphins dinged the Seahawks in most major publications' NFL power rankings.

The Seattle Seahawks dropped out of most major publications' NFL power rankings top-10 following their 24-21 defeat by the Miami Dolphins.

ESPN only dropped the Seahawks down one spot to No. 13. Both the Cincinnati Bengals and the Indianapolis Colts leapfrogged the Seahawks, with ESPN citing Seattle's once-unstoppable run defense looking more human as the season wears on,

The Seahawks are allowing 155 yards rushing per game over the past five after allowing 70 per game over their first six.

CBS Sports dropped the Seahawks down three spots to No. 12, citing the team's road woes. Seattle is undefeated at home but has only won one game on the road - against the Carolina Panthers on Oct. 7. The Seahawks have two remaining road games left on the schedule.

Not being able to win on the road is killing this team. At some point, that has to change. Now there's a chance their corners could be gone for a month. Ouch.

The AP Pro32 Poll dropped the Seahawks down three spots as well to No. 13. With 237 votes they are only four votes ahead of the No. 14 Pittsburgh Steelers and five votes ahead of the No. 15 New Orleans Saints.

The Seahawks' next game is on the road against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Dec. 2.
