Focus on third downs

The Seahawks have a major advantage in one area of Sunday’s game — the all-important third down.

Seattle excels both on offense (43%, No. 8 in the NFL) and defense (36%, No. 10 in the NFL), while Arizona comes in at No. 29 in both categories (30% on offense and 45% on defense).

“We can take advantage of this,” Coach Pete Carroll told his players this morning. “And all we have to do is do what we do and perform like we’re capable of. Just be who we are and we have the advantage.”
