NFL Week 9 Football Props: Seahawks vs. Chargers
For the Seattle Seahawks, it's been a bit of a rollercoaster season. They seem to be playing well, but nobody is talking about them as serious playoff contenders. They're three losses have each been by only one score, and they came dangerously close to handing the Rams their first loss a few weeks back.
Everybody has been talking about the fact the Chargers are 5-2, and that their only losses have come from the Rams and the Chiefs, 2 of the top teams in the NFL. However, their 5 wins have come against the Bills, Browns, Raiders, 49ers and Titans who share a dismal combined record of 10-29-1. They've really only experienced the best and the worst of the NFL, which makes this Sunday's matchup vs the Seahawks so important. Not only will it keep them in the running in the AFC West, but it will offer a chance for them to play a middle of the pack team with a lot to gain from a win. Seattle sits in 2nd in the NFC West behind the Rams, and will need a lot of help if they're going to catch up.
The Chargers will be rooting for the Browns this weekend, and Seattle will be hoping the Drew Brees can continue his hot streak against the Rams. Both of these teams are in the playoff race for wild card spots, and even possibly as divisional winners, but it will take a lot for them to catch up to their divisional rivals. The Chargers come into Seattle as 1 point favorites, but Everyone knows that the Seahawks at home are a dangerous team.
