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.

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.
