The Seattle Seahawks still have one preseason game left to play but it’s hard not to look towards the regular season.
Seattle’s underwhelming performance thus far is creating a lot of concern about how they will perform in the regular season. It won’t be an easy year for a team in the middle of rebuilding.
Week 1 marks the return of Russell Wilson to Seattle since he was traded to Denver in March and he’s certainly going to have a chip on this shoulder. The Broncos will have the better quarterback and their defense will be difficult to face for whoever becomes the Seahawks QB1.
Prediction: L 27-17
The Seahawks have only lost twice to the 49ers in the past five seasons, however, I believe that will change without a QB set in stone. When the Seahawks head to San Francisco in Week 2, they will only be two games into the season and likely won’t have figured out how to overcome the adversity yet.
Prediction: L 17-16
The Falcons, like the Seahawks, have a bit of a question mark at quarterback. Unlike Seattle, the Falcons have two starter quality quarterbacks in Marcus Mariota and rookie Desmond Ridder.
Prediction: L 27-24
The Lions look to be slowly improving as a team but it might not be enough to beat the Seahawks. Hopefully, by week 4, Seattle will have steadily begun to figure out things.
Prediction: W 28-14
