Seattle Seahawks vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Week 12 Picks And Predictions

Seattle Seahawks are on a roll right now. After that big win against New England Patriots they handled the Philadelphia Eagles with ease and are now looking like one of the best teams in the NFL. That game against the Patriots was a huge confidence booster for Pete Caroll’s squad. Can they keep performing at this high level and turn the table for the rest of the season?

Maybe, but they will have to be at their best against Bucs in Tampa. This team is coming off a huge win against the Kansas City Chiefs and they are pumped up to continue. KC was rolling before that loss so that just goes to show you how dangerous this crew from Tampa Bay can be. They also have wins against the Falcons and Panthers, so they are not to be underestimated.

If this game was scheduled to be played in Seattle, it wouldn’t be as interesting to watch as it will be now. The game will be on Bucs home field, and we expect Jameis Winston to show up with great performance. Russell Wilson is also playing at a high level, so this quarterback matchup is pretty interesting. These guys have a similar skill set, and it’s going to be fun to see which one will be able to make more big plays and connect with their teammates.

Winston and his offense have one big flaw. When the center snaps the ball, Winston is always looking where Mike Evans is and is trying to force the ball to him. Well, when you are playing against the defense like this Seattle one, you can’t afford to do that. Sherman will cover him meaning that Winston and this offense will be limited to some degree.

That is why we are picking the Seattle Seahawks to win this one in Tampa. It’s going to be a fun encounter, but Seattle is a better team right now, and they will end up victorious 27:21.
