We have a showdown between some birds and some pirates. The Seattle Seahawks will be flying South where they will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Seahawks are coming off their third straight victory, as they took down the Philadelphia Eagles a week ago. The Bucs are also on a winning streak, as they defeated the Kansas City Chiefs on the road last week.
The Seahawks are on a roll right now. However, they are still a team I never feel I can put full faith in. They throw up some real clunkers when most people expect them just to roll over an opponent. Those games will typically come when the team is on the road, as they are this week. They lost on the road to New Orleans in week eight, but then turned things around and won on the road against the Patriots only two weeks later. So the bottom line here is they are a club I never know if I can fully trust. They will look so good some weeks, and then the next week their offense is non-existent.
The Bucs fall in a fairly similar category. They overall have performed better on the road this season compared to home, which is fairly unusual. They are also a team that has had their fair share of injuries on the season. Last week they went to Kansas City and won in one of the hardest places to win a road game, Arrowhead. So it is clear this team does have some talent. But do they have enough to beat a team that some see as one of the better teams in the NFC? Well luckily for them, they only need to stay within five points to win in the eyes of bettors.
