This team is still loaded, still hungry, still aggressive and still able to shut down a potent offense. The Seahawks will win this game because the defense stayed almost entirely intact and because it is truly star-studded.

Sure, defenses do not stay dominant forever. Matchups can be exploited, players can get hurt, and it is unrealistic to assume that the ‘Hawks won’t allow a yard.

However, the Seahawks will still succeed based on their defense. Based on personnel, they are going to succeed.
