Revisiting my predictions for the Seahawks 2019 season
Seahawks are 6-2, I’m 7-1. Could the good times last?
In game nine, I expected the Hawks to steamroll the Bucs. As you may recall, that’s not quite how it played out. Okay, I was off by 22 points and an overtime. We can’t all be perfect, right? Not unless our name is Russell Wilson, anyway. I still called the win, just not as crazy as it was. The next game was the biggest of the season to that point. I didn’t expect the 49ers to come into this one undefeated, and I didn’t expect the Seahawks to pull off the win. Happily, I was wrong for the second time. At this point, both Seattle and my predictions were 8-2.
After the bye, the Hawks traveled to Philly for what I predicted would be a tough win. It was tough alright, but only because the Hawks offense went into hibernation. Oddly enough, we got something of an instant replay in the first round of the playoffs. Still, it was Seattle’s best defensive result, and another win, another correct call.
I believed the following game versus the Vikings would be an offensive show, one the Seahawks would take by 10 points. I wasn’t too far off the mark on this one. I’m pretty sure we’re all okay with the seven-point win we got. Another big game from Chris Carson was a big part of the win, ably supported by Rashaad Penny. Entering the final month of 2019, both the Hawks and my predictions stood at 10-2. There was much rejoicing. But would it hold?
