Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner continues to set the tone for his team on defense. Wagner has paced the Seahawks in tackles while also being near the top in sacks and tackles for loss.

Wagner's performance this season has earned him the No. 1 PFF grade among linebackers.

Wagner currently owns an 87.9 defensive grade from PFF. That places him above Myles Jack of the Jacksonville Jaguars (85.3 rating) and Lavonte David of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (84.1 rating).

Through 10 games this season, Wagner has racked up 96 tackles, which ranks third in the league. That also includes 56 solo tackles, good for the eighth-most in the league. Additionally, the linebacker has accounted for 6 tackles for loss and 3 sacks. Wagner posted 2 sacks in a Week 8 win against the San Francisco 49ers.

The Seahawks find themselves at 7-3 and in a tie for the top record in the NFC West with the Los Angeles Rams. They'll face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12 on Monday Night Football, who are facing a massive question at QB and struggling on offense.
