The Seahawks and Patriots have separate a prior 16 regular-season meetings, with Seattle removing a win in a most-recent contest, a 24-23 feat in Oct 2012 during CenturyLink Field. New England, of course, surfaced a Seahawks a final time a dual teams met, earning a 28-24 feat in Super Bowl XLIX to top a 2014 season.
The Seahawks reason a 48-28-1 record in primetime games, a 19-13-1 record on Sunday night, and a 16-3-1 record in primetime games underneath conduct manager Pete Carroll. The bar will demeanour to urge on all those outlines this weekend, with kickoff set for 5:30 p.m. PT on Sunday, Nov 13 during Gillette Stadium and inhabitant radio coverage on NBC (channel 5 in Seattle).
Here’s a demeanour around a web during that side a inhabitant media is picking to win in Week 10:
Sheil Kapadia during ESPN.com calls Sunday night’s diversion a Seahawks’ biggest plea of a season, predicting a 27-24 Patriots win, “The Seahawks are in a tough mark here. They have to fly cross-country following a Monday night game, while a Patriots are entrance off of a bye. Seattle’s invulnerability has played 244 snaps in a past 3 weeks, some-more than any group in a league. Getting off a margin has been an emanate as a Seahawks arrange 26th in third-down defense. Offensively, their temperament is changing, and Russell Wilson‘s arm competence have to lift Seattle in a shootout. The Seahawks have hold a lead or been within one measure in a fourth entertain of 96 true games, yet this is their biggest plea of a season.”
Mike Reiss during ESPN.com sees a 23-16 New England win, “The Seahawks haven’t mislaid a diversion by some-more than 10 points in a past 5 seasons, that reflects a turn of earthy and mental toughness that has warranted a honour of Bill Belichick Co. The 2012 diversion between a teams was a gem, with Wilson heading Seattle to 14 points in a final 7:21 in a 24-23 win. Similar to that game, this one should come down to a fourth quarter.”
Chris Burke during SI.com says Seattle will have to be nearby ideal to win, predicting a 30-24 feat for New England, “This will be a best invulnerability Tom Brady has faced given his lapse from suspension, and one that could given of intrigue and crew have a shot vs. a Martellus Bennett-Rob Gronkowski combo. But who knows where a Patriots will go. Two weeks of credentials left Bill Belichick a prolonged time to diversion devise for this one. Watchability index: 10. The Seahawks could put to rest any concerns about their chances by winning in Foxborough. They’ll have to be nearby perfect.”
Pete Prisco during CBSSports.com has New England winning by 10, 27-17, “The Seahawks face a bad multiple this week. It’s a brief week after a Monday night diversion with a prolonged outing to face a league’s best group entrance off a bye. Good fitness with that. The Patriots were rolling on offense before a bye and that will continue here. They will use a ton of discerning short, passes to kick a Seahawks.”
Peter Schrager during FOXSports.com thinks cornerback Richard Sherman will come adult with a large play in a 27-24 Seahawks win, “Are these a dual defining teams of this generation? Consider this: Since 2012, a Patriots have a NFL’s No. 1 scoring offense (29.9 ppg), and a Seahawks have a NFL’s No. 1 scoring invulnerability (allowing 15.8 ppg). They’ve won dual of a past 3 Super Bowls, and there are some-more personalities on any register than many teams have had in their whole histories. The Seahawks descent line is truly an area of concern, yet we consider they find a approach to startle a Patriots in Foxboro. This won’t make adult for a approach Super Bowl 49 finished, yet it will do wonders in a NFC playoff picture. Richard Sherman has had as many success opposite Tom Brady as any other cornerback in a league. we consider he finds a approach to make a large play in this one, too.”
Michael David Smith during ProFootballTalk.com has a Patriots winning 33-20, “In a best diversion of a week, we demeanour for New England to make a matter that it’s a best group in a NFL.”
Mike Florio during ProFootballTalk.com also has a Patriots winning, 27-20, “The Seahawks are anticipating their groove, and a win over a Patriots would be mystic and manly and potentially a matter for another Super Bowl run. The usually problem is that a Patriots are too good, too consistent, too relentless to tumble plant to a group that might see again in Houston.”
Elliot Harrison during NFL.com trusts a Patriots to win, 30-20, “Supposedly the Patriots didn’t have full-time skeleton for Jamie Collins. OK, cool. So who performs his several duties now that he’s in Cleveland? Who is going to check Jimmy Graham, or spasmodic rush a passer in his stead? The reason we ask is given Graham is heating up, while Russell Wilson still seems not as mobile as we’re used to. we trust New England here, though. The Pats, after all, are 96-24 in Weeks 9-16 given 2001. Good grief.”
David Steele during Sporting News has New England entrance divided with a 31-27 win, “It doesn’t harm a Patriots that they come off a bye and play during home opposite a West Coast group that played on Monday night. It does poise a problem that Russell Wilson is personification this good while both harmed and lacking any critical rushing game. It’s not irreverent to contend that Jimmy Graham is personification parsimonious finish newly as good as Rob Gronkowski is.”
Danny O’Neil during 710Sports.com predicts a 34-24 Patriots win, “The Seahawks haven’t been this large of an loser given they went on a highway to play San Francisco in Week 6 of 2012, that was Russell Wilson’s rookie year. Since that season, Seattle has mislaid usually dual games by some-more than 8 points: a nine-point detriment during San Diego in Week 2 of 2014 and a 10-point detriment in Green Bay in Week 2 final year. New England is entrance off a bye while a Seahawks played on Monday night in a diversion that went down to a really final minute. Everything adds adult to a sincerely convincing win for New England, yet a Seahawks are a group that will move some-more tension into this game. Not usually that, a Seahawks are a group that thrives on their emotion. Will it be adequate on a highway opposite a group deliberate by many to be a best in a league?”
