Coming into today, the Seattle Seahawks are 6-2 at the halfway point of the 2019 season. It hasn’t been pretty, tons of close games, against some bottom tier teams, but as always, a win is a win. Might as well be happy with 6-2 because as of now it’s enough to sneak into the playoffs. With that said, things are about to get much more difficult.
In fact, at least according to win percentage, the Seahawks have the most difficult remaining schedule in the NFL. Seattle’s remaining opponents have a win percentage of .642, considerably higher than the second team on the list, Atlanta, whose opponents are winning games at a .627 rate.
Things can go uphill or downhill really quick, but I will say this. We control our own destiny. Also on the top 8 list (seen below) our two division foes are on their too, the San Fransisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams. Oh yeah, we play them still too. At the end of the day, this might be tough, but the Seahawks must win and advance.
One major concern to look out for is the loss of starting Center Justin Britt. He has been lost an ACL injury and will miss the remainder of the year. Losing a starting center is one of the most devastating losses a QB and offensive line can have. But as always, we believe in Russ.
