The Seahawks have dropped to 4-4 as the result of losing each of their past two games by one possession in each game. However, with the Minnesota Vikings in town for today’s game, the Seahawks have a perfect opportunity to take back the drivers seat to a Wildcard position in the NFC. The Vikings are 5-3 and have been playing very well this season, but no one on their team has been more impressive than the MVP candidate, Percy Harvin. Through only eight weeks, Harvin has recorded 60 receptions for 667 yards, and has a total of five touchdowns on the season. If you don’t see where I am going with this, the Seahawks must stop Percy Harvin.
The Seahawks have the team that can give the Vikings fits, a tough defense with a conservative offense that will try and beat you by controlling the clock and wearing out the opponents defense. If the Seahawks can get back to the style of football that had them at 4-2, then the Seahawks should be able to win this game. Add in the home field advantage, and everything that is on the line for this mid-season game, we just hope the Seahawks come out to play knowing how this game can affect them at the end of the season. We think the Seahawks will win!
