Hyde Hawks Still Better

The Seahawks trouble on the road last year was well chronicled. They were a completely different team, especially on defense. They went 3-5 away from Qwest, 3-6 if you include the playoffs. I thought it would be interesting to compare the "bad" Seahawks to the normal Bills.

2007 "Road" Seahawks
Pts For: 19.29
Pts Against: 19.43
Total Yards For: 314.72
Rushing For: 84.86
Passing For: 229.86
Total Yards Against: 333.57
Rushing Against: 118.57
Passing Against: 215

2007 Bills
Pts For: 15.8
Pts Against: 22.1
Total Yards For: 277.1
Rushing For: 112.5
Passing For: 164.6
Total Yards Against: 362.9
Rushing Against: 124.6
Passing Against: 238.4

They managed to outrush the "bad" Hawks, but that's it. Think about that. The Seahawks played their worst football on the road last year to the point that it is a major focus point going into this season, yet they still statistically outperformed the Bills in almost every category.

cool Stats on both this post and the post of holmy's first away games. Both inspire confidence that this first game is gonna see the seahawks fly.
