Seahawks Vs. Panthers, Week 5: Seattle offense has work to do, despite win

The Seattle Seahawks moved to 3-2 with their 16-12 win against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, but despite the win, the Seahawks' offense still has a lot of room for improvement.

Over at Field Gulls, SB Nation's Seahawks blog, Jacson Bevens called the game a, "a phenomenal defensive effort that masks a litany of offensive shortcomings."

Despite better offensive statistics than in previous weeks, Bevens noted the Seattle offense continued to struggle to complete drives. Russell Wilson threw a pick-six which resulted in Carolina's only touchdown of the game. Bevens called the interception Wilson's "worst play of the season."

While the offense might have left a little bit to be desired, the Seahawk defense was stout once again. Seattle allowed just three points defensively and preserved the win with a goalline stand and a forced fumble on the final possession. As has been the case all season for Seattle, Sunday's game was a strong defensive performance with the offense just trying to do enough. Or as Bevens summarized it:

There's a lot of work that needs to be done by the 'Hawks offense to maximize their drives, but the story of this game was the defense, which was suffocating and spectacular -- like being choking to death in a tiny room filled with lit fireworks.
