Seahawks climb to No. 1 in Touchdown Wire’s Week 5...


After a perfect 5-0 start, the Seattle Seahawks have claimed the top spot at No. 1 in Touchdown Wire’s Week 5 NFL power rankings.

Seattle was only in the No. 5 spot entering the week. Touchdown Wire’s Doug Farrar explains . . .

“Up 26-21, and with two minutes left in the game, the Vikings’ coaching staff made the decision to run Alexander Mattison on fourth-and-one from the Seattle six-yard line instead of taking the chip-shot field goal,” writes Farrar. “The unsuccessful conversion left Russell Wilson with 94 yards to cover to win the game. This would be a disadvantage to a push for most quarterbacks. In Wilson’s case, anytime you give him the ball, you are pretty much doomed. As the Vikings discovered.”

“He is the heavyweight champion,” Farrar continues. “He’s also the MVP. He is absolutely the most dangerous quarterback in the NFL. And right now, Russell Wilson leads the best team in football.”
