Following a bye week, the Seahawks stayed put in a majority of NFL power polls.

The Seattle Seahawks got a much-needed bye in Week 11, and without any major upsets during NFL action last Sunday, the team's ranking in most power rankings is unchanged from the previous week.

ESPN kept the Seahawks at No. 12 in this week's power rankings, keeping them one spot above the resurgent New Orleans Saints who seem to have played themselves back into contention after floundering early in the season.

CBS gave the the Seahawks a boost in this week's power poll, bumping them two spots to No. 9, adding that the team will need to learn to win on the road in order to have a legitimate shot in the playoffs.

SB Nation's own Joel Thorman kept Seattle at No. 13 after the bye week, and suggested that the team has a real chance at a 10-win season given their upcoming opponents.

The Seahawks (6-4) head to Miami in Week 12 to take on the 4-6 Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium. Kickoff is 10 a.m. PT and the game will be televised on FOX.
