2017 NFL SEASON
Week 10: #NFL Game Predictions (w/ spreads & analysis)
Week 9 results: 8-5 wins (season: 72-47; .605); 7-6 v. spread (season: 60-59; .504)
The Seattle Seahawks are right where they want to be at mid-season, largely due to their defense, but after struggling through the first few weeks the offense has found their ground.
Seattle Seahawks 5-3 (-6) @ Arizona Cardinals (41.5): Seahawks 27-20
Thursday, 8:25 PM, Univ. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ (Weather: Indoors)
Reasons: The Seahawks were about 90 seconds from their 6th win and keeping pace with the young Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West, but Kirk Cousins happened, and Seattle lost 17-14. What’s interesting is, despite managing only 14 points against Washington and being burdened most of the season with a patchwork offensive line, Seattle has quietly become a top-10 offense in points (10th), yards per play (9th), point differential (8th), 3rd-down efficiency (6th), turnover ratio (6th) and yards gained (4th) to compliment their 5th-ranked scoring defense (18.5 ppg). The Cardinals, on the other hand, are absolutely awful. One of the worst teams in the league statistically, ranking in the bottom 25% of most offensive and defensive categories, it’s almost seems impossible Arizona would be 4-4 until you see those wins have come against the Colts, the Buccaneers and the 49ers (twice), who have five combined wins.
