Seahawks vs. Vikings Prediction
The first time these two teams met, it wasn’t pretty. Seattle racked up 433 yards of total offense and scored on all but two of its drives when the starters were in the game. Minnesota had just 125 yards of total offense and needed a late kickoff return by Cordarrelle Patterson to avoid the shutout.
Things should be different this time around, though.
The Vikings responded well to that shellacking, losing to the Arizona Cardinals by three on the road before rattling off three straight wins by a combined 60 points to finish the season as NFC North champs. Moreover, the defense is healthy after playing without Linval Joseph, Anthony Barr and Harrison Smith–their best player at each level–against the Seahawks the first time.
So, it’ll be closer. But the final result won’t be different. The Seahawks are simply playing too well. Russell Wilson and the offensive is clicking at unreal level of efficiency, while the defense is as dangerous as ever and will get Kam Chancellor back after he missed the last three games. Finishing the season 6-1 and out-scoring opponents 224-98 during that span, the ‘Hawks ended the year atop Football Outsiders’ DVOA rankings, a testament to their excellence in all three phases of the game.
PICK: Seahawks 25, Vikings 17 (Seahawks ATS, Seahawks SU, Over)
