8. Seattle Seahawks (5)
Any Seattle Seahawks fans worrying about how disappointing the offense looked against the Green Bay Packers have no reason to worry since this team has been in this position where they don’t always begin the year off on the right note before turning on the jets. Instead, the Seahawks should look at this loss to the Packers as a game where they faced a very tough defense that seems to be working their way up the ranks of the NFC.

Of course, if Seattle does want to be successful, and increase their impressive streak of playoff appearances, Russell Wilson is going to need better support in the ground game to avoid what he experienced last year. The 2016 season is the perfect example of how a quarterback like Wilson can only do so much on his own without the proper support of his teammates in the ground game, and the free agency signing of Eddie Lacy was supposed to help fix this issue.
So how did Lacy do on Sunday against his former team? Well, let’s just say watching Lacy finish the game with just three rushing yards on five carries is a major reason for concern over a running back that was once considered a player who was capable of handling the No. 1 duties. It was only one game, but let’s hope the Seahawks figure this issues in the ground game that may have carried over from last year.
