It's Tuesday, so we're shrugging off Sunday's loss and looking ahead to this Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. What is happening in Seattle's season?

If you're looking for a better example of football being played on a field, not paper, look no further than the 2012 Seattle Seahawks. They epitomize the notion of the sport being more art than science, as the 2-2 team have made late pushes, gotten hot at the right time, and received a fair dose of help from replacement refs on their way to a .500 record this season.

Like the Carolina Panthers they're a young team, and have similar youthful struggles. However, through a combination of effective running, and stifling defense they have overcome their woeful offense this year. Here are the Seahawks, inside the numbers:

Passing offense: 130.8 yards per game (32nd in the NFL)

Leading passer: Russell Wilson- 60/100, 594 yards, 4 TD, 4 INT, 73.5 QB rating

Leading receiver: Sidney Rice- 12 receptions, 132 yards, 1 TD

Rushing offense: 150.8 yards per game (6th in the NFL)

Leading rusher: Marshawn Lynch- 92 attempts, 423 yards (4.6 YPC), 2 TD

Passing defense: 213 yards allowed per game (9th in the NFL)

Leading pass rusher: Chris Clemons- 8 tackles, 5.0 sacks

Key defensive back: Kam Chancellor- 28 tackles

Run defense: 62.8 yards allowed per game (2nd in the NFL)

Key linebacker: K.J. Wright- 30 tackles, 1 FF
