Team Analysis

Seattle will certainly give San Francisco a run for their money in the NFC West, but will probably end up in the playoffs either way. Russell Wilson is one of the NFL's up and coming superstars, and he has one hell of a team around him. The defense is absolutely stellar; I don't even have anything to critique on this side of the ball. On offense, however, the receiving corps are once again mediocre because of the injury to Harvin. The offensive line also has a few holes in it, especially at right tackle. Luckily, Wilson's ability to run and bide time in the pocket corrects the majority of these problems. The only thing that could go wrong is if Wilson's game gets figured out by opposing defenses. If Wilson can continue his hot streak from the end of last season, Seattle could be tough to handle.

Projected Wins
