5. Seattle Seahawks (5)
The bye week came at the perfect time for the Seattle Seahawks after handing the San Francisco 49ers their first loss of 2019, and the most exciting factor of all is how the team has a legitimate shot at winning the NFC West.
A few weeks ago, the 49ers seemed like an absolute lock to finish on top of the division, but the Seahawks made it clear in their Week 10 they have just as much of a fighting chance to finish on top of the NFC West.
Normally, Seattle is always considered one of the top teams to beat in the NFC due to Russell Wilson continuing to prove to be a top quarterback in the league, but the argument can be made the veteran is in the middle of his best season with the team.
The fact that Wilson is considered one of the favorites at the moment to take home MVP honors when the time comes shows how great the Seahawks quarterback has been in 2019, and he’s clearly not finished yet.
Facing the Philadelphia Eagles on the road is never easy, but with the way Seattle is playing, Wilson and company should feel confident in their chances to pick right up where they left off in Week 12.
