Total offense

How it ranks: 380.3 yards per game, fifth in the NFL.

Analysis: As we have noted previously, the Seahawks have finished in the NFL’s top five in total offense only three times – second in 2005 (369.7 yards per game), third in 1997 (359.9) and third in 1978 (344.4). And yes, 344 yards per game ranking 21st shows how the NFL has changed over the years.

The Seahawks are on pace for 6,084 yards, which would break the team record of 6,012 set last season (which was an average of 375.75 per game). Or put another way, the Seahawks need to get 308 yards against the Cardinals on Sunday to break the franchise record for yards in a season. More here.
