The Seattle Seahawks have a solid team and should be one of the favorites to get back to the playoffs as they battle the Los Angeles Rams for an NFC West division title.
The two biggest moves Seattle made to try and get a division crown was upgrading the defense. First, the team signed Ziggy Ansah – who had four sacks in seven games for the Detroit Lions in 2018 and 12 sacks in 14 games in 2017. The second big move came about a week before the start of the season when the team traded for Jadeveon Clowney from the Houston Texans.
After suffering their first 30 point loss in three seasons, there are many questions surrounding the Steelers 2019 season. Can the Steelers bounce back with a strong performance at home? Can they continue their success at Heinz Field against NFC West opponents? Is the team who took the field in Week 1 the Steelers we will see all season, or was it one bad game on their path to continued improvement?
Seattle’s two moves give them one of the best defenses in the league.
On offense, quarterback Russell Wilson will have to deal with the retirement of Doug Baldwin. Tyler Lockett becomes the team’s No. 1 receiver and on the other side, the team will have a rookie in D.K. Metcalf to throw to.
Seattle might have taken a hit offensively, so it will be interesting to see how Wilson – who signed a major contract extension in the offseason – handles a new receiving core.
