Predicting the Seahawks 2016 record
By Dan Viens
WEEK 7 – AT ARIZONA CARDINALS
Wow. Sunday Night Football in the desert between the two best teams in the division, and perhaps in the NFC. It’s quite possible both teams will enter this game undefeated. The Cardinals get the good fortune of facing the Patriots week #1 without Tom Brady, although a week #3 trip to Buffalo could be a huge challenge.
As I said in the intro, this comes down to pure logic. The Cardinals are good. Better than we want to believe. It’s reasonable to think the teams will split their two matchups. As successful as the Hawks have been in prime time games, let’s give this one to the home team.
SEAHAWKS LOSE (5-1)
WEEK 8 – AT NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Pity the New Orleans Saints. They have improved their defense, and still have Drew Brees, but they face a ticked off Seahawks team coming off a huge conference loss to their rival.
They’ll make the Saints pay.
SEAHAWKS WIN (6-1)
WEEK 9 – BUFFALO BILLS AT HOME
This is another tough one to call. The Bills should be outstanding on defense, but that’s a long road trip for them, and I don’t see Tyrod Taylor being able to generate many points at CenturyLink against the Seahawks defense.
SEAHAWKS WIN (7-1)
Next: Super Bowl rematch!
