The Seattle Seahawks had 10 games last year which were decided by one possession. This makes predicting the games they will have an easier time with in 2024 somewhat difficult. However, the Seahawks did have three games in 2023 they won handily.

Each of those opponents that the Seahawks won comfortably against was bad the year prior, with the exception of one team that did make the playoffs the previous year. Using that as a template moving forward, 12s might find that some of the easiest games in 2024 are against teams that were not great the year before. This seems simple except for the fact that each season is different due to teams making offseason changes.

For instance, the Chicago Bears are not on the list below because they added Caleb Williams should be much improved this season. Let's take a look at which games were easy for Seattle in 2023.

Which games should be the easiest for the Seattle Seahawks in 2024?

Seahawks beat New York Giants 24-3 on MNF

This was probably the least likely of the three games Seattle would cruise to victory in last year. The Giants had higher expectations in 2023, after making the playoffs and advancing to the divisional round in 2022. However, the Giants completely regressed in 2023, with an awful offensive line that gave up the most sacks in the NFL last season (85). Those deficiencies were apparent on MNF when the Seahawks sacked Daniel Jones 10 times, en route to a 24-3 blowout win.

Seattle cruises to victory over Carolina 37-27

Carolina, unlike the New York Giants, was a bad team in 2022, finishing 7-10. They did trade up in the 2023 NFL Draft to select Alabama QB Bryce Young with the first overall pick. Young was injured prior to the Seahawks game against the Carolina Panthers. Surprisingly, the Panthers decided to have their backup QB Andy Dalton attempt 58 passes, as they struggled to run the ball, finishing with 44 rushing yards. The Seahawks won by effectively running the ball, as Kenneth Walker III rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns, running away with a 37-27 win.

'Hawks handle Cards at Lumen Field 20-10

In the first match-up between the Seahawks and Cardinals in 2023, Seattle took care of business against an awful Arizona squad starting backup quarterback Joshua Dobbs. The Seahawks Rookie wide receivers Jake Bobo and Jaxon Smith-Njigba each had a receiving touchdown, and Kenneth Walker III rushed for 105 yards. Seattle was in control throughout much of the game, as they easily defeated their divisional rivals, 20-10.

Using recent history to help predict the Seahawks easiest 2024 games

When predicting the outcome of games in the future, looking at how a team performed the previous year can be a good indicator of what will happen this year. Both the Cardinals and Panthers had losing records the previous season, whereas the Giants overachieved in 2022 and ended up regressing in 2023. Based on what has happened this past season, here are the opponents the Seahawks should have the easiest time with in 2024.
