The Seahawks’ throttling of the Saints on Monday night proves that, currently, the Seahawks are the best team in the NFL — and that a big gap exists between them and the second-place team.
With only one loss in 12 games and an inability to lose at home, the Seahawks have become the presumptive favorites to win the NFC championship and to earn a berth in Super Bowl XLVIII.
For that reason, they remain firmly entrenched as the top team in the PFT power rankings.
Sure, a lot can happen between now and February. But it would be a major upset if anyone beats Seattle in two postseason games before the Super Bowl. And it’s hard to imagine anyone from the AFC other than the Patriots finding a way to beat them at MetLife Stadium.
