Despite the lack of a run game the team put up the third best points scored against the opponent's average points allowed. Regrettably, the team put up the third worst points allowed against the opponent's average points scored.
The last two games have not inspired confidence that the team can make a playoff run. They are regressing in the run game on both sides of the ball and the offense has failed to rally late in the last two close games.
Next up are the Rams. They offer another opportunity to get back on track. The Rams are scoring at a paltry 16.2 points per game. Plus, they are allowing 23 points per game ... not pretty.
The Seahawks need the two possible wins against the Rams. Without winning this game, the hope of a playoff game greatly dims. Not just because of the wins and losses but because they are floundering in winnable games.
The zero line represents the opponent's season average points scored and allowed. The y-axis is also used to show Seahawk's actual game results for points scored and allowed.
Lines & Points
Note: These are team points and averages. They represent team results. They are not strictly offense and defense, although most of the points scored are by the offense and most of the points allowed are by the defense.
Green - Points scored (the green line across the graph is the average)
Yellow - Points allowed (the yellow line across the graph is the average)
Red - Points scored vs opponent's points allowed season average
Blue - Points allowed vs opponent's points scored season average
Thin Red and Blue wavy lines - Moving 4-week Average (MA)
Since there are so few games, the MA lines are just a visual confirmation of what you see with the actual game results. The other types of trend lines give exaggerated results with so few data points (linear, power, logarithmic, etc.).
- 3 or 5 game trends
- Any other thing that can influence the performance.
