Game Analysis & Picks
The Seattle Seahawks (1-2) will be looking to snap their two-game losing streak when they take on the Detroit Lions (1-2) in the Motor City. Both teams are facing big challenges going into Sunday’s matchup. Seattle is traveling to the East Coast which is always a challenge for any team coming from the West Coast. The hometown Lions are shorthanded this week with offensive stars D’Andre Swift and Amon-Ra St. Brown already being ruled out for this matchup.
Do not let the records fool you, both teams have showed that they are no slouch and have been competitive in each of their first three games. Even without D’Andre Swift, Jamaal Williams who rushed for 87 yards and found the end zone twice in Week 3 will be just fine carrying the run game in Swifts’ absence. The Lions will need to be better on third down this week where they were just 3-16 against Minnesota. Seattle’s offense made some strides in Week 3 but came up short one to many times in their 27-23 loss to Atlanta. Geno Smith and the Seahawks offense has been better than expected, but the Seattle defense has been a work in progress and has struggled to get off the field on third down.
My pick for this game is the Lions. Even with their best two players out this week, I still expect Jared Goff and Jamaal Williams to be effective and put-up points against the Seattle defense. DROY candidate, Aidan Hutchison will get after Geno Smith and cause a disruption continuing the Seahawks struggles preventing them from being able to get down field in the passing game. Roll with the hometown Lions (-3.5) and take the Over (43).
