RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Earl Thomas says there is no room on the Seattle Seahawks bandwagon. If you weren't on the ride already, Thomas says it's too late.
There are plenty of folks latching on to the Seahawks considering how they are surging toward the postseason. Seattle won its fourth straight game when it beat up NFC West-leading San Francisco 42-13 on Sunday night before a national TV audience.
Seattle (10-5) was already rolling with consecutive games reaching the 50-point mark. But that came against lesser competition in blowouts of Arizona and Buffalo.
The win over the 49ers legitimized everything Seattle has been building. The Seahawks scored with ease on what was the top scoring defense in the NFL, led by rookie Russell Wilson's four TD passes. And they showed the country how tough an out the Seahawks could be in the postseason.
