RENTON, Wash. - In the locker room after stifling Arizona, Michael Bennett was holding court, more than happy to proclaim this Seattle Seahawks defence as the best all-time.Certainly it was bombastic and the opinion of just one player. Yet Bennett might have been on to something. Maybe not the point of Seattles defence being mentioned in the same breath of the best all-time, but certainly one of the best defences of this era.Its cool for (Bennett) to say it. Obviously wed love to be in that discussion, but I wouldnt say it, Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said. Theres been some great defences to play out there. I think wed be in the discussion to be one of the best defences, especially this year and last year, and what weve done on a consistent bases year in and year out.Depending on what happens in the season finale Sunday against St. Louis, the Seahawks have a chance to place themselves into the conversation among the best in this era. Even if the numbers dont translate directly between generations — with differences in player skills and rules — what Seattle has accomplished is noteworthy in a historical context.You have to rate defences in their own time periods, because the rules today, I dont know if the defences back then would be as good, and they were killing quarterbacks and theyd probably get ejected out of games for half of the stuff they were doing back then, Sherman said. But those were the rules back then that they played by, and they played the game at a high level, but like you said, the game has changed.Seattle enters Week 17 leading the NFL in total yards allowed, points allowed, yards passing allowed and ranks third in yards rushing allowed. Last season, the Seahawks led the NFL in total defence (273.6 yards per game) and scoring defence (14.4 points).Its almost a certainty the Seahawks will finish this season as the leaders in total defence. Seattle and Detroit are the only two teams in the league giving up less than 300 yards per game and the Seahawks have a nearly 30-yard advantage over the Lions. Seattle also has a slight edge over the Lions in points allowed.And if Seattle can finish the season as leaders of those two categories it will join rare company.Were definitely playing really good ball right now and its definitely going to be something to talk about later on in the years, Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said.According to STATS, only three teams in league history have led the league in yards allowed and points allowed in consecutive seasons: the 1954-55 Cleveland Browns, the 1969-70 Minnesota Vikings and the 1985-86 Chicago Bears.But what could separate Seattle as the best of this era is its scoring defence. Only two teams in league history have led the NFL in scoring defence in three straight seasons. Cleveland did it for five straight seasons from 1953-57, and Minnesota was the best scoring defence in the league between 1969-71.Seattle led the league in 2012 (15.3 points per game), 2013 (14.4) and could add a third defensive scoring title by shutting down the Rams on Sunday.On Wednesday, Bennett said total yards and points allowed are the statistics that matter most.Those are two things you take into account. You dont want to allow points and you dont want to give up a lot of yards, Bennett said. When we give up 30 rushing yards were thinking, Could we have given up 20? Its one of those things where were really ambitious about it when we go out there.Whether this years version of the Seahawks will be considered better than last seasons squad that won the first Super Bowl in franchise history wont be known for another month. The 2013 version had better pass defence and scoring defence numbers. The 2014 version is far better at stopping the run. The ultimate tiebreaker — winning a title — goes in favour of the 2013 squad. For now.I think were different. Its going to be hard to say youre better than the defence that won the Super Bowl — No. 1 in just about every category that you can be No. 1 in, Sherman said. So, just different, I think at the end of the day. You can ask me that question after the season and Ill probably have a better answer for you.___Online:AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL T. J. Oshie Jersey .

We ended up shooting ourselves in the foot.The Lakers led much of the first half but never by more than six points, thanks in part to free throw troubles. Los Angeles was 15 for 23 at the line in the first two quarters.The Lakers led 46-40 after Wayne Ellingtons 3-pointer with 3:16 to play in the second period.
