The Seahawks continue to climb up the power rankings as they make a playoff push.

The Seattle Seahawks have won two straight games, and that has them on the rise in NFL power rankings all over the web. The Seahawks dismantled the Cardinals, 58-0, in Week 14 after picking up a huge win over Chicago on the road the previous Sunday.

SB Nation's Joel Thorman still doesn't have Seattle in the top 10 in his NFL power rankings, putting the Redskins (7-6) ahead of the Seahawks. Thorman does have praise for rookie quarterback Russell Wilson:

11. Seattle Seahawks (LW: 13, 8-5): If you held a re-draft today, Russell Wilson would be a top-10 pick and no one would really bat an eye.

ESPN slots Seattle at No. 10, with NFC West blogger Mike Sando putting the Seahawks at No. 7. Seattle-based reporter John Clayton put Seattle at No. 9.

Zac Wassink of Yahoo Sports also has the Seahawks at No. 10, while NFL Network's Elliot Harrison has Seattle at No. 7 due in large part to its back-to-back impressive wins.

Brian Billick of Fox Sports kept the Seahawks at No. 8, while Pete Priscoe of CBS has Seattle at No. 8.

The Seahawks will look to continue their rise when they face the Buffalo Bills in Toronto next Sunday. That will be Seattle's last road game of the year, and it will be hoping for a third win away from CenturyLink Field.
