The Seattle Seahawks play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Munich, Germany in Week 10. The game will mark the first time the NFL has played in Germany. It’s good that the NFL didn’t wait another week as that would be when the World Cup gets underway.
I know the NFL is trying to build some kind of global brand, obviously. But it’s currently a very United States-centric sport and trails other sports like basketball, hockey, and even baseball on the world stage. If the NFL really wanted to test its global drawing power, it should have scheduled this game after the World Cup started and just see how much the NFL would get squashed in views compared to the biggest soccer tournament in the world.
But I digress. Because what we really care about here at this website, of course, is the Seahawks. This might be their only game in Germany ever and if it is we hope, just as we hope every week, that Seattle wins by 50 points or so. Will Seattle win by 50 in Week 10? Here are a few guesses as to what happens.
Three silly guesses as to what happens when the Seahawks play the Buccaneers
Guess number 1: Tom Brady throws his first interception in 400 passes
The above title isn’t a joke. Tom Brady hasn’t thrown an interception in 373 passes. Aaron Rodgers holds the record for consecutive passes thrown without throwing a pick at 402. Brady will likely throw at least 25 passes against the Seahawks. So far in 2022, he is averaging 44 passes a game. That also isn’t a joke. Since the third game of the season, Brady is averaging 48 throws a game.
But Brady hasn’t thrown an interception since Week 1. Brady has the third-lowest interception percentage of all-time over the course of his career (1.7). This means Brady is not only extremely accurate and smart but he also rarely puts the ball in the harm of being picked.
But Seattle will get an interception against Brady on his 28th pass attempt of the game. Tariq Woolen will get his fifth interception of the season when he picks Brady on a pass attempt to Mike Evans. Brady will end up throwing 50 passes but Seattle won’t get just one pick, they will get two.
