RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Third downs have been a nightmare for the Seattle Seahawks.

Offensively, they've struggled to convert to keep drives alive. Defensively, they've allowed far more conversions than they'd like.

Coming off a 19-13 loss at St. Louis, the third-down struggles have become a focus for the Seahawks.

Seattle's offense has converted on just 28 percent of its third downs so far this season. In the last two weeks, the Seahawks are converting at just a 20 percent clip.
