What this all means for the Seattle Seahawks moving forward

Seattle has fought tooth and nail to be where they are currently in the standings. Everyone wrote Seattle off before the season even started. But Geno Smith and Pete Carroll luckily never wrote back as the Seahawks may have one of the most advantageous positions of anybody heading down the stretch.

The Seahawks have four of the last five games at home in Seattle. The Seahawks play the banged-up 49ers for the division lead just two weeks from now and have by far the easiest remaining strength of schedules of all the previously discussed teams. Seattle might just have a shot at not only shocking the league by getting into the playoffs but heck, the Seattle Seahawks after all is said and done might actually be hosting playoff football games in Seattle for the first time since 2020.

I am predicting the Seahawks will win 4 of their next 5 to finish the season 11-6, which by my calculations and predictions should place Seattle as the 3rd seed in the NFC playoff picture.
