1. Seattle Seahawks:
The Seahawks had about as dominant a win over the 49ers as you will ever find, beating what many believed (myself included) was the best team in football 29-3, a week after they dismantled the Green Bay Packers. The scary thing with this Seahawks team? They have still yet to figure things out on offense. Russell Wilson has not been the same player he was last year, only two touchdowns this year, with one interception, and we know that he is capable of far more than this. The running game was good game one versus the Panthers, but blew up against the dominant front of the 49ers, rushing for a total of 172 yards and two touchdowns, led by Marshawn Lynch who ran for 98 and scored both touchdowns. As controversial as their defense may be, with guys like Brandon Browner and Dick Sherman being tested positive for adderall last season, these guys are damn good. They managed to lock up the most explosive offense of week one. This included the 49ers top weapons on offence of Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore, Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin. The pass rush was good with three sacks, the pass coverage was great led by the aforementioned Sherman, Chancellor and Thomas who all secured interceptions. Just an all around dominant effort bashing one of the best teams in the NFL. They claim the top spot in this weeks power rankings, and with the way that defense is dominating, they might not give it up for quite a while.
