Breaking Down the Seattle Seahawks Win Total
2020 NFL Season
Seattle Seahawks: O/U 9.0 Wins - Super Bowl Odds 20/1
The Seattle Seahawks will be looking to keep up with the level of success they have displayed over the last handful of years in the NFC West. The Seahawks finished the 2019 season with a record of (11-5). The Seahawks made it to the playoffs and were able to get to the divisional round, after beating the Philadelphia Eagles in the wild card round. The Seahawks were eliminated by the Green Bay Packers. Let us take a look and see who the Seahawks will be looking at to guide this team during the 2020 season.
Quarterback Russell Wilson passed for 4,110 yards and 31 touchdowns and 5 picks during the 2019 season. Wilson also rushed for 3 touchdowns on the ground. Running back Chris Carson is back after having a successful 2019 campaign, totaling 1,230 yards rushing and 7 touchdowns. The Seahawks had two receivers last season that had great seasons, but after that the production fell off.
Tyler Lockett hauled in 82 receptions for 1,057 yards and 8 touchdowns. DK Metcalf did his part, as the young wideout reeled in 58 receptions for 900 yards and 7 touchdowns. The next closest in receiving yards was tight end Jacob Hollister with 349 yards.
As a team the defense collected 28 sacks and 16 interceptions. Linebacker Bobby Wagner will be hoping to have the same success as last season. Wagner led the Seahawks in tackles with 159. The linebacker also had 3 sacks. Defensive end Rasheem Green registered 4 sacks, which was a team lead last season. Linebacker K.J. Wright was very active in the passing game, recording 3 interceptions, while having 11 pass break ups.
Looking at the Seahawks 202 schedule, Seattle has a nice blend of tough and lesser opponents. The Seahawks will be playing both New York teams at home, while also playing host to the Patriots, Cowboys, and Vikings. Seattle will see some of the lesser opponents on the road. The Seahawks will travel to the Dolphins, Redskins, and Falcons.
When looking at the NFC West, the Seahawks and 49ers games have been very competitive over the last handful of years. The Rams are going in the opposite direction, as Seattle should be able to get 2 wins against the Rams. I’m going to take the over for Seattle, as the Seahawks should have at least 4 wins in the NFC West, but then play some of their easier games on the road. The Seahawks should beat Miami and Washington on the road, while taking care of business against the Giants and Jets at home. Those wins would put Seattle at 8, needing just 1 more win to push and 2 more to cover the win total. The Seahawks would need just 1-2 wins against the Vikings, Patriots, Cowboys at home, or road games at Atlanta, Buffalo, and Philadelphia. I’m taking Seattle to cover, as the Seahawks should be able to get to double digit wins.
