Last time out: The Seahawks had a bye in Week 7

Record: 3-3 overall, 1-1 in division

Bye-week synopsis: The Seahawks have won three of their past four games to get back to .500 on the season. They clearly aren't the elite contender of yesteryear but Seattle has done a nice job staying in the playoff hunt while re-tooling. The Seahawks are currently fifth in the NFL in scoring defense despite the departure of many big names and the loss of safety Earl Thomas to a season-ending broken leg. It is still early in the season and Seattle must prove it can keep up this pace with so many new faces.
