The Seattle Seahawks managed to experience a decrease in accepted penalties in their second preseason game against the overmatched San Diego Chargers last Friday night.

That’s right: eight penalties is progress in your 2014 NFL season — even though it’s exactly on pace for the highest average of just one year ago.
