Week 13 - Seahawks travel to play the Cowboys in Dallas
Just like in Week 12, everything points to this being an ugly game against the Cowboys. The closest any team has come to the Cowboys in Dallas is 20 points which came back in Week 2 when the New York Jets lost 30-10. Dallas is not perfect as they have lost three games and every team they have beaten does not have a winning record.
Dallas is currently first in the NFL in points score per game and is fourth in points allowed. They run the ball well enough (12th in rushing yards per game) and are third in third downs converted. Their strengths line up with Seattle's weaknesses.
Prediction: Cowboys 34 Seahawks 10
Seahawks record: 6-6
Week 14 - Seattle travels to play the 49ers in San Francisco
We all saw what happened in Week 12 when the 49ers defeated Seattle 31-13. The game was such a blowout that there seemed to be some hope when Seattle cut the lead back to 24-13, but that was still a two-score game and was out of reach for Seattle. Simply put, if the 49ers are healthy, they are a better team than Seattle.
My hope is that Seattle can keep the score closer than they have in the last four meetings with the 49ers. Expecting an upset seems foolish, unless San Francisco is simply extremely overconfident. More likely, 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy will play even better than in Week 12 and San Francisco will once again win comfortably against Seattle.
Prediction: 49ers 30 Seahawks 14
Seahawks record: 6-7
