Home sweet home
First of all, let’s stop the “not the same away from home” talk about the Seahawks. Seattle did just fine away from the friendly confines of CenturyLink Field last season, and one loss to the Chargers doesn’t mean that Seattle can’t win on the road.
Now, back to the main point. The Seahawks will be home this week, and the place is going to be rocking. It is arrogant and unwise to assume that the ‘Hawks are invincible in front of the hometown fans, but the Clink continues to provide Seattle with an advantage.
That advantage will make a difference this week when Peyton Manning is shouting “Omaha! Omaha!” Plus, it isn’t going to be 150 degrees on the field. That should help the defense.
