The Seahawks are 6-3 and a win can tie them for first in the NFC West. The Falcons are 5-4 and desperately need a win to keep playoff hopes alive. Here’s who wins.

Seahawks fans (of which I am one), I could easily type Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor will not play Monday over and over. I could do this just like Jack Torrance in The Shining writing, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

But I won’t. Because that is just sad. But you know what else is sad? The Seahawks playing without Sherman and Chancellor. Most likely for the rest of the year. One being gone sucks. Both being gone means worse.

I know, we 12s should have faith, etc. I want to, trust me. But Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane are not Sherman. DeAndre Hopkins had over 200 yards receiving even with a healthy Sherman. Julio Jones is better than Hopkins. And Matt Ryan, Jones’ quarterback, is not a rookie.

Sure, the Falcons offense is nowhere near as good as 2016. But it’s still good and capable.

Our only hope is that Russell Wilson just completely goes off on Atlanta. Oh and the game is in Seattle. Still…
