The Seahawks belief is powerful

This team believes in each other. They believed when no one else did, or when they were being made fun of. Now, Seattle is rewarded with a three-game winning streak and a full-game lead on the NFC West division.

The schedule, while it may be more difficult than it appears, does look ripe for an even longer winning streak. Over the next five games, the Seahawks will face zero teams above .500. The hopes to extend the win streak will have to come on the road in a divisional battle at Arizona. The Cardinals are wounded and are on the brink of collapse. Seattle can finish them for good on Sunday.

The offense is humming, continuing to play at a top 5 level, while the defense is rapidly rising up the ranks, looking the part of a top 10 defense. It’s still too early to call this team a contender, but you have to take advantage of moments where you can make a run.

The NFC is ridiculously weak this year. There’s a real chance that Tampa Bay and Green Bay don’t even make the playoffs. The Eagles look like the class of the conference, but with little playoff experience, the #2 team in the NFC could find their way to the Super Bowl.

It’s been an enjoyable ride so far this season and the power of belief is contagious. A few more wins, and we’ll be talking about home-field advantage. What a wild season, I can’t wait to watch it continue. Go Hawks!
