The run defense (3.1 yards per rush) and stingy 75.6 opposing passer rating are also among the league's best. Seattle pitched an eight-sack, first-half shutout against the formidable Pack, with Clemons getting four of them. Pretty good for a guy in his eighth season who entered the game with 43 career sacks.
