They proved it on Thursday when they went up against the Arizona Cardinals and won 34-22. They are now 6-1, on their way to one of the best seasons in their franchise history.
 
They have already tied the number of road games they won last year and can for now easily boast that they are the best there is in the entire NFC for now.
 
Every team has its weaknesses and problems. The Seahawks are no different and from time to time their flaws can be seen. But what is amazing is that the Seahawks find successful ways to solve their problems and evolve from their mistakes.
 
“It feels like we are still growing. We are still a very young team and it feels that way,” said Pete Carroll, Seahawks coach. “We have enough firepower in a lot of areas to overcome the things that are going in the wrong direction, but we are playing good, solid football.”
 
The Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer had to face the brutal offensive of the Seahawks defensive lineup. They racked 13 hits and seven sacks, nearly a franchise record. The Seahawks weren’t just done with a good defense but did a spectacular job of foiling the ground offensive of Cardinals. The Cardinals just managed 30 yards and their longest run was a mere six yards.  
 
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes.
 
“That is how we kind of separated ourselves. That is what we need and we did a great job in the red zone,” he said.
 
On Monday the Seahawks will face the St. Louis Rams. Coach Carroll gave the team four days off to relax before the match on October 28. To predict that the Seahawks will be 9-2 or even 10-1 is by Week 13 actually realistic. And to say that they will continue to improve on their way is also right. There are chances that their wide receiver Percy Harvin could come back to practice as soon as the coming week. And the starting offensive tackles might get back into action too, adding more strength to the team.
 
Left tackle Russell Okung and right Right tackle Breno Giacomini could both be back in the practice as soon as next month. Okung was placed on the injured reserve with a status confirmed as returning and may play during Week 11 match against the Minnesota Vikings.
