Super Bowl XLVIII Snapshots: Seattle Seahawks

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Jan 28, 2014

2 of 4


-The Seahawks rank 12th in rushing offense, averaging 4.30 yards a run behind Wilson and Marshawn Lynch's combined near-1800 yards.

-The Seahawks' 136.75 rushing yards a game are fourth most in the league. Over two playoff games against the Saints and 49ers, the two-game average sits at 144.5 yards a game.

-Seattle is 7-1 when the team clears 150 yards, with their only loss coming in their best season output of 218 against Indianapolis.

HOW DOES IT FACTOR: The Broncos are undefeated, 10-0, against teams that don't clear the 100-yard rushing mark this season. Much of that, obviously, has to do with opponents abandoning the run when Denver's offense stockpiles points, and Seattle, like any opponent, couldn't afford to go one-dimensional, should that happen.

Five times this season, the Seahawks were able to run past the century mark against top-ten defenses in terms of yards per attempt: Arizona twice (135, 103), San Francisco (115), St. Louis (111), and the New York Giants (134). The first Arizona game, and the Giants game, are merely the ninth and tenth best efforts this season, suggesting that Denver (3.87 YPA average) stands a good chance of boxing in Beast Mode.
