The Seattle Seahawks will return to CenturyLink Field and prime-time on Monday Night Football in a rare encounter versus the Buffalo Bills. They’ll try to right the ship at home against a great defense after failing to win on the road against a great offense. Under Pete Carroll, the Seahawks have been downright dominant at home in prime-time - a record of 9-1 while outscoring opponents by over 14 points per game.
The task of continuing that home form will be a little bit tougher, as it looks as though Buffalo’s star running back LeSean McCoy will make it back from a nagging hamstring injury in time for this game. How much he’ll be able to contribute - after being rushed back last week - is still a question mark.
Inconsistent performances from Seattle’s offense all year has led to question marks across the board, but in true Seahawk fashion they should be able to launch themselves right back into the contender conversation with a beating in front of the nation - and the incomparable Jon Gruden and Mike Tirico.
