The Seattle Seahawks are NFC West champions after a 20-9 win over the hated Los Angeles Rams. It was only two months ago when the Seahawks lost in Los Angeles, dropping confidence levels to a season-low of 29%. Fast forward to Week 17 and with a 5-1 record over the last six weeks and look at where we are! A whopping 92% and 6th among all NFL teams.
If this team beats the San Francisco 49ers as expected on Sunday (without any serious injuries) and they somehow get the #1 seed? Maybe we see that number closer to 100%, which is what the Buffalo Bills have right now.
Speaking of the Bills, they’re among the legitimate Super Bowl contenders and I can’t even believe I am typing that. In this week’s national question, the Kansas City Chiefs were the overwhelming pick to repeat as champions, followed by “other,” and then the Bills and Green Bay Packers. Not a lot of love for the New Orleans Saints.
The “other” is interesting to me because it obviously includes the Seahawks but there aren’t too many other NFC options outside of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In the AFC you have the Titans and the Ravens, along with the Pittsburgh Steelers as other notable contenders.
