We have a good one this Sunday Night, as two division leaders will take on one another in week 10 NFL action. The Seattle Seahawks will come to the East Coast and take on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The Seahawks won this past Monday Night as they took down the Buffalo Bills at home. Meanwhile, Tom Terrific continued his winning ways in a win in Buffalo two weeks ago before the team’s bye in week nine. This week, a rematch of Super Bowl XLIX!
The Seahawks are leading the NFC West with a 5-2-1 record. But I am still not convinced they are as good as their record may suggest. At least two of those wins could have gone the other way, and the tie was a game that was completely controlled by the Arizona Cardinals. Now they will take to the road, where the team has only won a single game this season. And that game was against the New York Jets, so does it really count? The road Seahawks are never a team I have any faith in, and this week is no different as they take on Mr. Brady.
The Patriots are looking like one of the more dangerous teams in the entire NFL right now. Since the return of Tom Brady, the club is 4-0, and have not had a game that they needed to sweat out. Their margins of victory in those four games have been 20, 18, 11 and 16. The defense is not a lock down unit, but they are still average at worst, and will keep their opponents down most weeks. It is hard to find a weakness in this club, as they have so much depth. Even though they need to win by more than a touchdown against a divisional leader to cover, the AFC East leaders have to be considered the pick in this one, unless you believe Brady has a down game.
Line: NE -7.5, O/U: 49
Pick: Patriots and the under
Result: Sea 31 – NE 24, Seahawks and the over
