6. Seattle Seahawks
After losing to the Rams you may have expected the Seahawks to drop lower than this, but losing games to divisional rivals on the road happens. I’m not going to knock a team too much for losing to another good team.
At the end of the day the Seattle Seahawks still have Russell Wilson and that is all they need.
Sure, it would be nice if the Seahawks receivers could make some big plays for him and if the defense would step up, especially Jadeveon Clowney. However, QB is king in the NFL and the Hawks have a great one.
5. Green Bay Packers
While the play calls haven’t been great in the second half of the season, the potential is there for any of them to explode and take over a game. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ball it seems like one of the Smiths are finishing with a sack in every game.
I don’t know that the Packers are a truly elite team, but right now I think they are one of the few teams in the NFL that could beat anyone if things break the right way.
