The Seattle Seahawks have emerged as one of the NFL's biggest surprises in 2012.
With victories over the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers (with an asterisk) and most recently the Chicago Bears, the Seahawks are in position to make the playoffs with the No. 6 seed or better.
Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson has played out of his mind since struggling in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers. In the five games since, he's thrown 11 touchdowns and just one interception.
It's going to be interesting to see how this team responds to the loss of Brandon Browner, who will begin serving his four-game suspension this week, per Jason La Canfora. Furthermore, Richard Sherman may also be serving a four-game suspension of his own if he doesn't win his appeal next week.
For now, though, the Seahawks have been a pleasant surprise this season, though certainly not the only one.
Let's take a look at the players and teams that have surprised us the most in 2012.
