The Seahawks are on the precipice. One loss in the next three games, especially one this coming week, might basically end Seattle’s season. Here is a quick look at Seattle’s remaining schedule.
December 17th at home versus the Los Angeles Rams
Seattle beat the Rams in week five 16-10. This was pre-Richard Sherman injury. And pre-Kam Chancellor injury. And etc., etc.
Seattle and Los Angeles are both 2-2 in their last four games. A win on Sunday would be even bigger for Seattle because they would theoretically be two wins up over the Rams due to winning both head-to-head games.
The Seahawks still have Dallas. But the Rams still have Tennessee. Sunday’s game is massive and could easily determine whether the Seahawks make the playoffs or are a third seed. No pressure. Same for Rams.
December 24th away at the Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys were struggling in weeks 10-12 getting blown out in all three games. The last two games, however, Dallas has defeated the Washington Redskins and New York Giants by a combined scored of 68-24. Plus, Dallas will get back running back Ezekiel Elliott just in time for Seattle.
Seattle has somewhat struggled against really good running teams this year, like the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars. Dallas in another one of those teams. Seattle will have to win in Dallas, though.
December 31st at home versus the Arizona Cardinals
Each of the last three games are must-win for Seattle. The Rams are not going anywhere, so even if Seattle wins this Sunday they need to win out. That said, the Cardinals will still be without Carson Palmer and Seattle has no excuse for losing to them in the last game of the season at home.
The Seahawks must go win their last three games. Possibly Bobby Wagner could be out against the Rams. This would make things much more difficult for Seattle. Hopes for the playoffs ride on a win this week. And the next week. And the week after.
