The Seahawks have traditionally been one of hte league's least-penalized teams. They were called for the fewest fouls in the league in 2007 and in 2004 and tied for second-fewest in 2005.

That has changed this season. Seattle was the 11th-most penalized team in the league in 2010, Pete Carroll's first-year as coach when the Seahawks were penalized 101 times. This season, Seattle is rising in a category that no one wants to lead the league in. Well, no one but the Raiders that is.
