Die Seattle Seahawks sind in München, um Fußball zu spielen!

For the first time in NFL history, they will play a regular season game in Munich, Germany. Not only is this a great moment for the league, but Germany is getting one hell of a game. The surprise 6-3 Seahawks taking on Tom Brady and the 4-5 Buccaneers. It’s been anything but a great season for Tom and Tampa, but this does remain a battle between two division-leading teams.

The record doesn’t necessarily show it, but considering all the factors, I think this is the toughest challenge Seattle will have faced since losing at San Francisco. A loss and I will not be disappointed as Seattle will return home to a bye, continuing to hold a division lead no matter what San Francisco does against the Chargers. A win and Seattle fans can spend the whole bye week talking about the Seahawks being a legitimate Super Bowl contender.

It should be a great game, and I look forward to watching Brady and Geno dual. Stats are a big part of MVP discussions, but storylines and achievements make up the majority of the rest. If Geno can beat the GOAT, then those MVP whispers will only get louder.

Two other specific matchups I look forward to seeing are the Seahawks O-line facing Vita Vea, one of the best defensive tackles in football. If Seattle can’t run on him, this game gets tougher. The second matchup is corner Tariq Woolen going up against wide receiver Mike Evans. Evans is one of the best receivers in the game. If Woolen can shut him down, then the game gets much harder for Tom Brady. Enjoy the early game, 12s, and don’t forget to enjoy this ride. Go Hawks!
