After losing tot he Washington Redskins this week at home the Seattle Seahawks still managed to move up two slots in this week's SB Nation NFL Power Rankings. Joel Thorman still sees some potential in this team, as they have some winnable games ahead that could allow them to finish the year on a positive note:

21. Seattle Seahawks (4-7, LW: 23): They've lost some tough games this year but they need to beat teams like the Browns and Redskins if they're serious about making a run.

The Seahawks have a favorable schedule of home games coming up. This week they will host the Philadelphia Eagles, who have probably been one of the NFL's most disappointing teams in 2011. The St. Louis Rams then come to town afterward with only a pair of victories so far. Seattle also has to go to the Bears, who are down to back-up quarterback Caleb Hanie, and Arizona later in the year.
