Stats ‘n stuff

Leon Washington continues to lead the NFL in kickoff return average, although it dipped to 37.0 from 40.4 after he had 87 yards on four returns against the Bears on Sunday.

The Seahawks also remain first in the league for opponents’ average starting point on kickoffs (20.6-yard line), but they moved into the top spot for average starting point on kickoffs (33.7) as well.

Rookie free safety Earl Thomas is tied for second in the league with three interceptions, one behind the Panthers’ Charles Godfrey.

The Seahawks rank second in rush defense, allowing an average of 70.4 yards. But they’re 24th overall because the pass defense ranks No. 30, allowing an average of 290.8 yards – and Bears QB Jay Cutler had 290 on Sunday.

With six sacks against the Bears, the Seahawks have 17 to tie for the sixth-highest total in the league.

Justin Forsett continues to lead the team in rushing (282 yards), but with his 10-catch performance against the Bears Mike Williams now leads the team in receiving (21 for 261 yards).

Strong safety Lawyer Milloy leads the team in tackles (32), while defensive end Chris Clemons is tops in sacks (4½) and QB hits (12). Linebacker Matt McCoy continues to lead the club in special teams tackles (6).

With two sacks against the Bears, Milloy became only the 11th player in league history to have 20 sacks and 20 interceptions in their career.

The Seahawks also continued their mirror-image records in games before and after their bye week. With the win in Chicago, they are 6-16 in games after their bye – and 16-6 in games prior to their bye after loss to the Rams in St. Louis.
