Seattle's defense coming around just in time for stretch run

SEATTLE (AP) — Justifiably maligned for the first half of the season, something has happened to the Seattle Seahawks defense in the past three weeks.

They’re getting stops. They’re causing disruption and forcing turnovers. They’re starting to be the complement to Seattle’s offense that continues to sizzle in different ways.

The latest example came in Monday night’s 23-17 win over Philadelphia. Seattle (8-3) sacked Carson Wentz six times. They held the Eagles to 250 yards and only a touchdown and 2-point conversion in the final seconds made the score as close as it was.

“From the beginning we knew what we had, we knew what type of talent we had,” safety Jamal Adams said.
