Now that we are settled off a bit, I’ll begin making picks each week. I have to do this for the paper, so may as well put it on here and give you a chance to throw yours in.
To me, this game is pretty simple. You have arguably the best secondary in the league facing a turnover-prone passing offense.
Though, the Seahawks struggle down here, where they are 1-6 all-time at Unversity of Phoenix Stadium. Pete Carroll hasn’t won a division road game since 2011. The Seahawks are 1-3 on Thursday nights. They are 1-2 on the NFL Network. The last time they won in Arizona was 2010.
But, this is obviously a much better team than those were. Barring a repeat of the special teams disasters of the last two weeks, I think they should handle this game pretty easy. Call it 24-13, Seahawks.
