RENTON, Wash. —

A week off for the Seattle Seahawks allowed coach Pete Carroll to take a closer look at some of his team's struggles.

Third down has been the biggest issue for the Seahawks this season on both sides of the ball. A defense that ranks third in the league in yards and points per game given up is allowing opposing offenses to convert on 41 percent of third down opportunities.

Offensively, Seattle (6-4) is converting just 33 percent on third down. Both stats are in the bottom third of the league. The Seahawks face Miami (4-6) on Sunday.

"For as good as we can play on defense at times to be at 40 percent, that's not good enough for us. We need to knock that thing down," Carroll said.
