The facts: Seattle wasn't competitive during a 44-6 defeat to the Giants at the Meadowlands in Week 5.
The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two.
Matt Hasselbeck apparently avoided a serious knee injury after suffering a hyperextension during Seattle's first possession. Hasselbeck's initial reaction suggested a serious injury. He finished the game.
Olindo Mare made two more field goals without a miss. He has made all nine attempts this season, including one from 50-plus yards.
Officials assessed only two penalties against Seattle. The Seahawks had suffered more penalty problems than usual through three games.
Another potential silver lining for Seattle unrelated to this horrendous performance: The Seahawks return home to face an injury-depleted and struggling Packers team. Green Bay has allowed at least 25 points in each of its last four games. The Packers are 2-3 after a 2-0 start.
