The Seahawks were as close to winning a Super Bowl as possible without winning last year. They have a good chance to put last year’s mistake behind them and win it this year. Yes, they’ll miss Max Unger and Byron Maxwell but Jimmy Graham is much more of a game changer. The defense should still be great but now they have the potential to be a top five offense as well. Third round pick Tyler Lockett already has two return touchdowns in the preseason and could give a big boost to their special teams.
The NFC West has been a tough division lately but the division could take a step back this year. The Seahawks could easily go undefeated in their division and put up a big win total. With the injury to Jordy Nelson, the Seahawks should be the favorite in the NFC. Improving on last year’s 12-4 record would not be a surprise.
