The eight-game road trip that seemed to stretch on forever is finally complete, and the Portland Winterhawks are finally back in town.

The First Real Test For The Seattle Seahawks Defense

Coming off a bye week, the Seattle Seahawks maintain their claim to the number one defense in all of the NFL, according to Football Outsiders and the advanced metric Defense-adjusted Value Over Average, or simply DVOA.
