Seahawks defense back on top after 3-game win streak

RENTON, Wash. (AP) It may not have looked that way earlier in the season, but the Seattle Seahawks are back to being an elite defense.

Seattle is tied for the league lead in scoring defense after Sunday's 24-7 romp over the New York Giants. The Seahawks are allowing just 15.7 points per game, tied with Jacksonville for the league lead. They've given up a combined 244 yards rushing in the past three games, including just 46 yards on the ground in rolling past New York.

It's no surprise the Seahawks have won three straight because their defense is back playing at the level that has become their standard.
