Week 13 vs. San Francisco

Back home to Centurylink Field and an NFC West Division game against the 49ers. This is where the Seahawks show new San Francisco quarterback C.J. Beathard what it’s like to play in the big leagues.

The Niners offense has shown improvement under second-year head coach Kyle Shanahan, but not enough to handle the Hawks. They will find it very difficult to win in the loud house the Seahawks defend. 12’s will be in full throat for this Sunday night matchup, which Seattle easily wins. Record 7-5.

Week 14 vs. Minnesota

The Seahawks will have an extra day of preparation in advance of Minnesota’s visit to the Emerald City for Monday Night Football. Seattle will look to build on their two-game winning streak. RW3 has a good record when it comes to prime time games.

Kirk Cousins is showing the home fans why the Vikings signed him in the offseason. But even Cousins will find it difficult to call plays with the volume of noise coming from the 12’s. They know when its prime time and you can bet they will be loud and proud. The Seahawks will make more plays on offense and defense to win this game, but it will be close. Record 8-5.

Week 15 at San Francisco

The Hawks head down I-5 to face the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium. They’ve had some close games on the road to this point of the season. But they will be facing former Seahawks all-pro corner Richard Sherman at his new house.

He will be looking more in the backfield than defending the Seahawks wide receiver. This will cost San Fran the game because he will try to do too much and Seattle will run plays right at him. The Seahawks come away with the victory and are in good shape for a Wild Card spot. Record 9-5
