8. Seattle Seahawks (-4)
Russell Wilson is absolutely not the problem on this team, but when your defense can’t get off of the field and make stops it puts your offense in a position where they feel like they need to score points and make plays on every single drive.
Against the Buffalo Bills that came back to bite the Seahawks with two Wilson fumbles and two interceptions.
I mean, give the team some credit because they had a whopping 7 sacks against the Bills today, but they also allowed double-digit points in three of the four quarters and Josh Allen looked like MVP Josh Allen again.
The Seahawks have yet to hold an opponent to less than 20 points in any game this season and despite Carlos Dunlap and Jamal Adams playing and making an impact today, that doesn’t seem like it is coming any time soon.
7. Green Bay Packers (+0)
In the last four games, the Packers have beaten the Texans and an injury-ravaged 49ers team while losing to the Tampa Bay Bucs (not great) and the Minnesota Vikings.
Sure, the Packers did win and that is great because Aaron Rodgers looks great and we got to see the Smith brothers completely destroy an offense. However, I just don’t know if they really have the pedigree to be higher on this list.
Unfortunately, I don’t think that will change any time soon because they don’t play anyone ranked higher than them until they play the Titans in Week 16, but with games against Tennessee and Chicago twice, they will get a chance to make their claim eventually.
