The Seattle Seahawks have been historically bad on defense this season, but Jamal Adams believes they are turning a corner to end the season. Following Seattle’s Monday night win over the Philadelphia Eagles, Adams spoke about the confidence he has in the Seahawks’ defense in the final weeks of the season.

“The swagger is through the roof,” said Adams. “We’re playing with a lot of swagger, we’re playing with a lot of confidence. We know when we step on the field, we’re going to try to take the ball away, we’re going to get a sack, we’re going to get a pick, then we’re going to invite everybody to the party. That’s what we do.”

Adams himself had quite a performance against the Eagles, logging nine tackles, two quarterback hits, and a sack. Altogether, Seattle’s defense performed well, sacking Carson Wentz six times and intercepting him in a crucial red zone situation.

In the team’s first nine games of the season, Seattle’s defense had allowed 448.3 yards per game and an average of 29.5 points per game. However, the Seahawks have tightened things up a bit defensively in the past two weeks, allowing an average of 282 yards and 19 points per game.

With a win over the Eagles in Week 11, the Seahawks have retained the sole lead in the NFC West and are positioning themselves well to contend in the playoffs. While Russell Wilson and the offense have shown that they can win games for Seattle, the defense of the Seahawks could determine how their season ends.
