The Seattle Seahawks finished last season as the second best team in the NFC West and will start the 2013 season in the same place in PFT’s preseason rankings.
However, that still warrants a spot in the top 5 in our rankings.
The Seahawks fell just short of a trip to the NFC Championship game last season and are considered among the favorites to win the NFC in 2013. The San Francisco 49ers still feel they are the ones to beat in the west and Seattle will have to get past their hated rival to reach their ultimate goal.
For an in-depth look at the Seahawks check out our full preview of the team as they get set to open training camp on Thursday. Is our ranking of Seattle correct? Let us know what you think.
