Week 4 — vs Indianapolis Colts, Sunday Oct. 1st 5:30PT, NBC
The first of four primetime games is a Sunday Night Football adventure at CenturyLink against Andrew Luck and the Colts. Indianapolis is a solid team that can’t seem to put it all together. There are too many things that could go wrong for them under the bright lights in Seattle, but Luck should keep his team competitive.
I could see the Seahawks swarming the Colts offense and causing problems, only for Luck to string a few ridiculous throws together in the fourth quarter to keep the score close. In the battle of 2012 draft picks, Wilson, with the stronger team playing at home, gets the exciting win.
Final Score: Seahawks 28, Colts 21 (4-0, Div: 1-0)
Week 5 — at LA Rams, Sunday Oct. 8th 1:05PT, CBS
Sigh. Week 5 is the annual trip to Los Angeles to play the Rams, who somehow beat the Seahawks at home every year, whether they’re in St. Louis or in their new digs in Southern California. Let’s just chalk this up as the typical ‘Lose to the Rams’ game and move on.
Final Score: Rams 16, Seahawks 12 (4-1, Div: 1-1)
Week 6 — BYE
Despite the annual frustrating road loss to the Rams, the Seahawks will still be coming off of a hot start to the season heading into their Bye Week. If my predictions are correct, they will have eked out two road wins already and a tough home win over the Colts. Expect even the national media to begrudgingly herald the return of the Seahawks for at least 30 seconds.
