Post Season

Game 1 2 New Orleans Saints AVG. 307.4 D. Brees 24/43 309 yds 1 TD

Game 2 30 San Francisco 49ers AVG. 186.2 C. Kaepernick 14/24 153 1 TD

So under examination the Seahawks played 9 games against a passing offense ranked 20 or worse, 2 games against top 10 passing attacks. Out of 16 games the Seahawks played teams ranking in the bottom half of the league in passing 11 times.

What does all this mean? Absolutely nothing! While they didn't play a pass happy schedule it doesn't mean they are not a very good pass defense. They held Drew Brees to embarrassing numbers in week 13, and Matt Ryan didn't do much better in week 10. One thing is very obvious they don't give up many passing TD's.
