The Seattle Seahawks currently sit at 6-5 with at least three extremely difficult matchups ahead of them. And we also should not forget the Week 17 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh is 7-4 but with a very good defense, though their defense struggles.
Part of Seattle's struggles in the last four games, in which time they have gone 1-3, is that they are so inconsistent. The offense might be decent in the first half and then trash in the second half. The defense might give up an early score and then tighten some in the second half. All these things simply go toward making the games more frustrating to watch, of course.
None of the next three teams Seattle faces has any issues with being inconsistent. Plus, the Seahawks play the Cowboys in Dallas where Dallas has won each game this season by at least 20 points. Then Seattle travels to San Francisco to play the 49ers, a team that just walloped them in Week 12.
What will happen in the Seattle Seahawks final six games of the season?
At least in Week 15, the Seahawks get to play the Philadelphia Eagles at Lumen Field, but the Eagles have only lost one game this season. Let us hope things are not overly ugly for Seattle in its next three games, but we have nothing to support any evidence that the opposite will be true. Being happily surprised would be nice, however.
So how will Seattle finish and how will each game go? Here are a few guesses. Though I hope I am wrong on many of them. Heck, maybe there will be seven or eight games left as Seattle will make the playoffs and win a game or two there.
