The Seattle Seahawks (3-1) have had their week off, and now they’re back in action against the Cincinnati Bengals (2-3), the first of five AFC opponents on the Seahawks’ regular season schedule. Seattle is looking to go for 3-0 on the road for only the third time in franchise history, while the Bengals are aiming to go 3-0 against the NFC West.
When we last saw the Seahawks, they pulled off a comprehensive defensive beating of the New York Giants, recording 11 sacks, 3 turnovers, and just 3 points allowed. That’s probably not being repeated against Joe Burrow and the Bengals, who just lit up the Arizona Cardinals for 34 points while Ja’Marr Chase had 15 catches for nearly 200 yards and 3 touchdowns. Cincy’s offense has not been consistent this year so we’ll see if Burrow is getting healthier after his training camp calf injury, or if they just beat up a vastly inferior opponent in Arizona.
Seattle’s offense is getting back left tackle Charles Cross from injury, but will be without Damien Lewis with an ankle sprain. Defensively we will see Jamal Adams and Tre Brown back from their concussions, as the secondary is about as healthy as it’s been all season. The pass rush is also at full strength and looking to tee off on the historically sack-prone Burrow.
Geno Smith is not 100% with that injured knee from the Giants game, but he’s healthy enough to not be on the injury report and he’ll be leading an offense that is top-10 in points scored and has plenty of room for improvement (especially on 3rd downs).
