RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Expectations are so high in the Seattle Seahawks locker room that what's impressive to others is merely acceptable to them.
In two games, the Seahawks' swarming defense has surrendered only 10 points, shutting down Carolina and San Francisco. They've made Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick look confused, created game-changing turnovers and shown just how much fun it is making the game miserable for others.
And the Seahawks are putting on this defensive show missing at least three expected starters.
On a team with offensive stars like Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch, Seattle's defense is deservedly getting praise for what they've done to start the season.
