3. Seattle Seahawks (111 points scored)

The Seattle Seahawks began the season to every Rams fan's pleasure, as Los Angeles put a beatdown on their division rival, 30-13. But, since that game, the Seahawks have won three in a row and are coming off an early bye week. At 3-1, the Seahawks are technically second in the standings, but come in at no. 3 here by way of total points scored.

Offensively, Seattle has worked its way up to the no. 7 scoring offense in the league at over 27 points per game. That's not too shabby for a team that began the year scoring just 13 in Week 1. Quarterback Geno Smith hasn't necessarily been overly impressive, and neither has the team's run game, but the Seahawks have done just enough to stay in the middle of the league in both aspects of offense.

Where Seattle has excelled is in taking care of the football. They are first in the NFL in terms of the least amount of giveaways, with just one, and it was a Geno Smith interception. Yes, you read that right. Smith has just one pick on the year and the Seahawks have yet to lose a fumble. If you want to know why they are 3-1 but not overly impressive in either offensive category, that is precisely why.
