If the NFC West has one team that can still make a move up the charts this season, it’s the Seahawks. At 3-3, Seattle may be closer to a rebuild than not, but they could still make some noise before this year ends, and a game at another 3-3 team in the Detroit Lions would be a good way to close out the first half of the 2018 NFL season.
The second half of the schedule offers a tough stretch beginning with a home game against the Los Angeles Chargers, on the road against the Rams, the Packers in Seattle, and a tough one against an up and coming 4-2 Carolina Panthers on the East Coast.
Bottom line for the Seahawks is that the game against Detroit is winnable, and they need to cash in on those kinds of games every chance they get.
Against the Lions, they get a quarterback in Matthew Stafford who can easily light up a defense, and the Seahawks defense has given up some points this year. Equally, Russell Wilson is no walkover as displayed when they played and ultimately lost to a still undefeated Rams team.
Week 8 is a great chance for Seattle to get above and possible stay above .500, which would open a world of possibilities as the rest of the season unfolds.
