The Seahawks are pretty hot right now

Seattle Seahawks' Russell Wilson scores a touchdown against Buffalo Bills' Khari Brown during the first half of their NFL football game in Toronto Reuters

We’ve covered most of the high points of the Seahawks’ 50-17 win over the Bills in Toronto already this afternoon, but we’ll try to tie things up in a neat little bow.

The Seahawks scored on their first five possessions, including three rushing touchdowns by quarterback Russell Wilson, to take a 31-17 halftime lead. They then scored 16 points in the third quarter thanks to Ryan Fitzpatrick turnovers on three straight possessions. And then they ran a fake punt to set themselves up for a field goal that made them just the third team in NFL history to score at least 50 points in back to back weeks.

Buffalo was totally overwhelmed by Wilson and Marshawn Lynch, who wound up with 113 yards on just 10 carries. He’s run 21 times for 241 yards over the last two weeks. Wilson ran for 92 yards and threw for 205 without having to do too much in the second half. Big play followed big play almost the entire afternoon and things got out of hand once the Bills offense totally lost its way after halftime.

Seattle’s heading into their Week 16 home game with the 49ers on quite the hot streak. Counting overtime against the Bears, the Seahawks have scored 108 points in their last 10 quarters of football while allowing just 20. If the 49ers lose to the Patriots on Sunday night, that game will be for the NFC West lead heading into the final weekend.

It’s a good time to be on a hot streak and there’s no one hotter in the NFL right now than the Seahawks.

    You know, Josh, if they could play the Bills every week, they would stay hot, know’m sayin’?

    Its clear that the Seahawks are the class of the NFC and the most complete team.

    I’ll wait until they play a real team,cardinals and bills can give you a false sense of how good you really are

  4. drillbit19k says: Dec 16, 2012 7:32 PM

    Better hope ten wins is good enough to get in when they host STL in two weeks.

    Being the “hottest” team doesn’t get you much if you don’t make the playoffs

    My God. Compliments on the Seahawks? …Were the Mayans right after all?!

    Define “real team”? I do believe they won against the Pats, Pack and Bears.

    Lets not forget about the Monday night Gift they received. They shouldn’t be contention. They were handed a win they didn’t earn. Tainted season, plus they have the “cheaters corners”. They are a joke.

    The Hawks have beat the Pats, Cowboys, Panthers, Packers (heh) and Bears. Unfortunately the Falcons and Texans aren’t on their schedule. Keep waiting to believe it…

  10. benihanagt says: Dec 16, 2012 7:37 PM

    Hawks have the best Strength of Victory in the NFL.

    Who else scored 50 on Arizona? nobody
    Who else scored 50 on Buffalo? only NE

    When was the last time YOUR team scored 50 back to back?

    The people saying that they’ll wait until the hawks play a real team better not be falcons fans, since they only beat below .500 teams until today. The Seahawks have beat multiple teams above .500 that are in playoff hunt. Who’s the idiot that said the hawks shouldn’t be in contention because of the GB game? They’d still be 8-6 with wins over Chicago, Minnesota and Dallas. With more conference wins than the Bucs and I’m not sure about Washington. Still, definitely in playoff contention. Why haven’t any other teams beat the cardinals or bills like the Seahawks did? Also, there are more than just the hawks with players that got suspended for Adderral. Aqib talib on the patriots is a good example. They should probably be kicked out of the playoffs, too. People are just afraid of how well the hawks are playing and it’s hilarious. Keep being in denial because if the hawks can pull off getting some home field games during the playoffs, then everyone will be forced to notice how good this team is.

    I’m curious if the 49er fans will cry and whine after next weeks beatdown, like the Packers and their fans cried and whined after their beatdown?

    I guess i will check back after the game to find out.

  17. realfootballfan says: Dec 16, 2012 8:03 PM

    Let’s not get carried away. They’ve drummed two of the worst teams in the league the past two weeks.

    I’ll give you one thing, if they somehow get a home playoff game, that will be a big problem for anyone who has to go out there.

    Otherwise, they’re one and out in the playoffs against a 3 or 4 seed because they’re terrible on the road. They lost to the Dolphins a couple of weeks ago for god sake.

    Seahawks were my pre-season pick for most underrated team coming into this season, mainly because of their pass rush and secondary (Sherman makes Pro-Bowl this year, and that is literally a Pro-Bowl/Super Bowl fill secondary). This team will win out and finish 11-5.

    I also highlighted that this offense had potential to be real explosive. Now that Wilson has been given more oppurtunities to make plays (he’s earned it too) instead of the conservative hand-off to Lynch 30 times approach, this team could be a sleeper in the NFC playoffs.

    Seahawks vs. Atlanta, GB, Minn., SF or NYG not in Seattle = loss! Face Seagull fans, you know, I know it…..Everybody knows it. Away from home against a quality team, you’ll lose!
    Just sayin’!

  20. themackstrong says: Dec 16, 2012 8:15 PM

    The funny thing to me is fans ignored Seahawks whether we were winning, losing or rebuilding. Now that we are dominating teams offensive/defense/special teams and one of the hottest teams getting to the playoffs these same fans want to hate on Seattle, their fans and coach. Pete Carroll doesn’t care, Seahawk fans don’t care and have plenty to be excited about with this team being 2nd youngest in the NFL with bright future. Russell Wilson is the real deal…Go Hawks!

    Funny thing is they beat GB (they did) and MIN already. Giants fade this time of year, and I’m still not completely sold on SF.

    Seahawks have the pass rush and secondary, and running game — formulas to winning games in January (and maybe February).

  22. bengalguy says: Dec 16, 2012 8:36 PM

    Hey Blacknol08,
    No one cares if your not sold on SF…….as of right now they’re better than you! And ya didnt beat GB or Minn on the road. Away from Qwest field ( or whatever the hell u call it these days) ….your merely avg. & you know it!

    @Bengalguy, fortunately for you I root for the Panthers.

    You have to concede that this IS a good team that has been overlooked all season.

  25. otis52gsh says: Dec 16, 2012 9:03 PM

    I don’t care who wins it all, just so it isn’t the Seattle cheat hawks.

    Hey there was a Flynn siting in Canada!

  27. jessesnapple says: Dec 16, 2012 9:14 PM

    Hey bengalguy, no one cares if you think the Seahawks are average away from home. Anyone who actually follows those games would understand that the hawks early losses were due to Wilson not having a full play book to use and a couple dropped passes, not trying to say the dropped passes justify the losses but that won’t happen all the time. Last two road losses were due to awful defensive play calling in the fourth quarter that allowed teams to score game winning touchdowns. No longer has it been the offense’s fault. The team has been coming together more and the offense is just clicking right now. The D is capable of forcing turnovers and should have learned from those two losses what defense not to use in those situations. Now with the offense clicking, the D might not have to be relied on to make a stop. Obviously we’ll see how the last two games play out, but if the hawks win out, there really shouldn’t be one team that feels good about having to play Seattle.

  28. xplicitpits says: Dec 16, 2012 9:33 PM

    “Beat a good team!” Ha ha ha in the words of Mike Rob “Make good teams look bad & bad teams look terrible!” Exactly what Seattle’s done. Youngest offense in the league! Youngest team in the league! Be scared! We are this good, this young, this fast! #GOHAWKS

  29. trollhammer20 says: Dec 16, 2012 9:35 PM

    You have to play who is on your schedule, and if you think you’re a good team, you should be able to easily handle mediocre to bad teams.

    Loved the halftime adjustments today. Defense was a tad shaky, giving up 10 points on two drives to end the first half, but in the second, the pass rush cranked up and forced fumbles and INTs.

    The inconsistent pass rush is the biggest reason to have doubts about the ability of this team. Then again, the way the offense has started to click, ever since the end of the Bear game, they just may be able to win shootouts.

    This game really showed everything wrong with the Bills as a franchise. They got smoked by guys that they traded/passed on, they were sorely outcoached on both sides of the ball yet again, they played in that abysmal hole known as the Rogers center which strips a home game from the Buffalo faithful, and they lost in incredibly embarrassing fashion yet again.

    Team is pathetic, Ownership is pathetic, front office is pathetic, coaching staff is pathetic…this team is going no where this decade either at this rate.

    There is so much wrong with this franchise I don’t even know where to begin.

  31. xplicitpits says: Dec 16, 2012 10:25 PM

    Billsboy88 you are absolutely right. Watching the game I was saying the samething. I think Chan Gailey has too much control & they would be much better. Spiller is fast boy!

    If the Seahawks are so “average”, then why are the Patriots the only other team this year to beat Buffalo by 50 points or more?

    And don’t be so smug about the Seahawks, your team couldn’t beat Miami, either.
