The Seattle Seahawks are one of the hottest teams heading into the 2013 NFL playoffs putting up crazy points on offense and stifling opponents on defense. The only problem is they start their Super Bowl campaign on the road, where they don’t seem like the same team.

The Seahawks (11-5, 3-5 V) are on a five game win streak averaging 38.6 points per game, while allowing an average 12 points per game. Rookie QB Russell Wilson is a candidate for rookie of the year after passing for 3,118 yards with 26 touchdown passes. Wilson is being compared to Robert Griffin III and their stats prove it. Wilson has a passer rating of 100; Griffin’s is 102.4. Wilson has thrown 26 touchdown passes; Griffin has thrown 20. Wilson has tossed 10 interceptions; Griffin has thrown five. Both have thrown 393 passes.
Wilson will take off running. He has carried 94 times for 489 yards compared to Griffin’s 120 for 815 yards. But the book on Wilson is that when he leaves the pocket, he’s usually looking to throw downfield more than Griffin.

While it’s unfortunate that this powerful home team will have to travel, I believe that Russell Wilson’s development as a quarterback and the defense’s drastic improvement on the road will be enough to get through to the next round. Coach Pete Carroll should feel confident putting his squad up against anyone in this conference, and we predict Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and this tenacious Seattle defense will conquer the conference.

On the road they’ve won two of their last five games, averaging 24.8ppg while giving up an average 19.8ppg.
The Bottom Line: the Seahawks are fully capable of winning big away from home. They have offense to match the Redskins, but the Skins can’t match their defense. We recommend you check out the latest NFL Point Spreads heading into the 2013 Super Bowl.
