The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks are set to face off on Sunday Night Football this week. It is a game that has major implications for both teams at the top of their respective divisions.
Tom Brady and the Patriots are without question the best team in the AFC. Even with the four-game suspension that Brady served, they have proven that once again they are a powerhouse with Brady and Bill Belichick leading the way. New England will have to compete with teams like the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos, but as of right now it doesn’t look like any team will beat them in the conference.
Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are without question one of the main contenders in the NFC. They will have to deal with the red-hot Dallas Cowboys, but they firmly believe that they are the best team in the conference. Seattle’s defense is one of the best in the NFL once again and their offense has quite a few players capable of making big plays at any given moment.

All of that being said, what bold predictions can be made for the Patriots vs. Seahawks game in NFL Week 10 action?
Tom Brady Overpowers the Seattle Defense for 350 Yards, Four Touchdowns
While Tom Brady having a big game is to be expected, 350 passing yards and four touchdowns is a bold prediction. Going up against Seattle’s defense is tough enough, but to dominate them in that fashion is nearly impossible. Brady is looking to make yet another statement this week and will do just that.

Russell Wilson Totals 250 Yards, Five Touchdowns
Seattle is going to need their offense to step up and match the huge game that Tom Brady will have. Russell Wilson will be more than ready for this game and will step up for his team. Wilson will total 250 yards and five touchdowns throughout the course of the game for the Seahawks.
LeGarrette Blount and the Patriots’ Ground Game Aren’t a Factor
New England has been very happy with the production that they have seen from their running backs. LeGarrette Blount has been their starter and has had a big year. Even with that being the case, the Seahawks are going to shut down the Patriots’ ground game.

Seattle Seahawks Will Come Up with a Huge Road Victory
It isn’t going to be easy, but the Seattle Seahawks will head into New England and pick up a win.
