This week I’ve got Seattle ranked 26th overall, so lets see if they can start climbing up the rankings in the next six weeks.

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports ranks the Seahawks 25th overall. ESPN puts Seattle at 25th overall.

Don Banks at Sports Illustrated ranks the Seahawks 28th overall. And Clifton Brown of the Sporting News also puts Seattle at 28th overall.

On another note, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that the Rams promoted rookie running back Chris Ogbonnaya to the active roster from the practice squad on Saturday, fueling speculation that starting running back Steven Jackson, who missed practice all week with back spasms, might not play on Sunday.

If Jackson can’t go, Kenneth Darby and Samkon Gado likely would get the carries for St. Louis.

1. Indianapolis (1): Colts can clinch an AFC South title today with a win over Houston and a Jacksonville loss to the Niners.

2. New Orleans (2): The Saints host New England on Monday night in the best game of the week.

3. Minnesota (3): Vikings looking to go 5-0 in the NFC North with a win over Chicago today.

4. New England (6):
Brady-Moss duo has combined for 31 touchdowns in 27 games played together.

5. Cincinnati (4): Just when you think the Bengals are for real they play a stinker and lose to the Raiders.

6. Dallas (7): Handled Raiders easily on Thanksgiving Day.

7. Arizona (9):
The Cardinals are a different team without QB Kurt Warner, who is questionable for today’s game at Tennessee with a concussion but expects to play.

8. San Diego (10): Chargers back in the driver’s seat atop the AFC West after impressive win over Broncos last week.

9. Pittsburgh (5): Steelers appear to be suffering from a Super Bowl hangover.

10. Denver (8): Broncos got back on the winning track, ending a four-game losing streak with a convincing win over the N.Y. Giants at home on Thanksgiving Day.

11. Philadelphia (11): Still waiting for this team to play up to its talent level.

12. N.Y. Giants (13): Up-and-down play mirrors the young players on this team.

13. Atlanta (12): The Falcons better get going if they want to make the playoffs for a second straight season

14. Miami (16): No Ronnie Brown, no problem for the Dolphins, who have won two straight since losing Brown for the season with a foot injury.

15. Baltimore: (14): The Ravens can’t win defensive battles anymore.

16. Houston (15): The Texans need to take care of business at home against the Colts to stay in the AFC playoff hunt.

17. Jacksonville (18): They’re doing it with smoke and mirrors, but the Jags are 6-4 and in the middle of the playoff hunt.

18. Green Bay (19): The Packers have righted the ship, and are a three-game winning streak.

19. Tennessee (23): QB Vince Young still hasn’t lost a game this season as the starter.

20. San Francisco (17):
Heading in the wrong direction. It doesn’t look like they’ll live up to Coach Singletary’s playoff prediction.

21. N.Y. Jets (20): Losers of three straight, the seat is getting warm for head coach Rex Ryan.

22. Chicago (21): See above, and add more firewood for Bears head coach Lovie Smith’s seat in Chicago.

23. Carolina (22): Inconsistent from week to week, but the Panthers have enough talent to still get back in the playoff hunt.

24. Buffalo (24): It took Terrell Owens 10 games to get his first, 100-yard receiving effort.

25. Kansas City (28): Don’t look now, but the Chiefs have won two straight.

26. Seattle (25):
Hawk can’t lose to St. Louis, can they?

27. Washington (26): Countdown to Jim Zorn leaving Washington down to six games.

28. Oakland (27): Reserve QB Bruce Gradkowski isn’t the answer either.

29. Tampa Bay (29): The year isn’t over yet and first-year head coach Raheem Morris already has fired both coordinators.

30. St. Louis (30): If Steven Jackson doesn’t play the Rams might get blanked again by Seattle.

31. Detroit (31): Rookie QB Matthew Stafford still taking his lumps – he’s thrown 12 touchdowns and 18 interceptions on the season.

32. Cleveland (32): Actually scored some points against Detroit last week, but don’t expect that to continue against the Bengals today.

    I hope the Hawks do lose to St. Louis. Or beat them but then lose out the rest of the season. This is an offense driven league and Ruskell just pissed away a ready-made elite one.

  2. We could indeed lose to the Rams, even without Bulger.

  3. I don’t see how we can lose to the Rams if they don’t have Bulger and Jackson. If they do, well, it ain’t gonna be pretty around here…

  4. How the mighty have fallen. 26th, acceptable and from a home C_Hawk blog. Not good. Well, I’m not buying into the Rams over Hawks just yet. No Holt, Bruce, Bulger and at best Jackson is dinged. I’m laying the -3 on the Seahawks.

  5. bird_spit says:

    Win or lose, hawks suck. I hope, yet doubt, coaches play personnel to evaluate and/or to get experience;aka Unger at center for instance. 2010 for hawks has plenty of upside assuming good FA market.

  6. Dukeshire says:

    Seahawks are winning today. Book it! This will be the season opener 2.0.

  7. yellaman says:

    Seahawk win today but it doesn’t forgive this teams inept play for the first 10 games. I’m just sayin
