The NFC West is by far the best division in football. Every team this offseason improved and took a step forward in the right direction. San Francisco was apart of a blockbuster deal that landed them their quarterback of the future in Trey Lance.
Arizona added some veteran experience to a young locker room with J.J. Watt and A.J. Green. Los Angeles moved off of Jared Goff and got a gunslinger in return by the name of Matthew Stafford.
Last year, San Francisco was bit by the injury bug. I do not expect that to happen again this year. I expect all 6 NFC West games for the Seahawks to be an absolute war. All four of these teams know the value of these divisional games. They all feel they are ready to win now and this will be a very exciting division to track throughout the entirety of the season.
I have the Seahawks going 3-3 in NFC West play this year. I anticipate that they split the season series with the Rams, Cardinals and 49ers. But, I do think the Seahawks will do enough damage outside of the division to give them the NFC West crown for the second straight season.
Players to keep an eye on: Tre Brown, Jordyn Brooks, Marquise Blair
Seattle Seahawks 2021 Record: 12-5
