The Hawks this season have honestly been unstoppable. Their defense, in particular, has been the best in the NFL, allowing a league-best 9 points-per-game. The collection of all-pro CB Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are the reason that this Seahawks secondary rules the skies. In the Seahawk’s first two games against mobile and extremely dangerous QBs Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick, the Seahawks defense held the Panthers and 49ers to under 127 yards passing. For this reason the Seahawks get the #1 spot. Their offense, lead by 2nd-year QB out of Wisconsin Russel “Hustle” Wilson (664 yards and 6 touchdowns) and Marshawn “Mow Your Lawn” Lynch (210 yards and 2 touchdowns rushing), can really play ball. Their receiving corps, although underrated, has a lot of talent. Both Sidney Rice and Golden Tate have anchored the WR position for the Seahawks with over 300 yards and 19 receptions between the two. Thus, with a totally dominating defense and perfectly adequate offense, the Seahawks look to make yet another push to the Lombardi this season
New Orleans Saints
With an easily top-10 offense and a resurrected Rob Ryan defense, this Saints team is dangerous. We all know that Drew Brees and the Saints can score points, Brees has been proving that since the day he was signed by New Orleans, but what makes this team different from all the rest is their new-look defense. To many people’s surprise, the Saints have transformed their once awful defense into a formidable force in the NFC South. Through the first three weeks the Saints have allowed a 4th best 38 points in 3 games and have sacked opposing QBs 8 times this season. Drew Brees is still as good as ever and this Saint’s offense looks to be showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The real question is how long the Saints defense can keep up such great performances week after week. Who knows, but the Saints should make it look Big Easy.
