The Pats and Seahawks have now played in three straight barn burners.

2012 - You mad bro?
2014 - SB49
2016 - Seahawks deal Patriots only loss w/Brady of season, last second goal line stand

The Seahawks are four point favorites in this one.

Immediate optimistic thought is that the Patriots secondary should matchup well with the Seahawks vertical passing game, but I‘m sure we have more in depth analysis than that.

Feel good about the secondary with Gilmore and Jackson covering Locket and Metcalf.
Seattle’s defense wasn’t anything special last week so we’ll see if offense can continue.
ofcourse stopping Carson and Wilson in the pocket will also be paramount to success.

I like our coach to help make this a competitive game.

on a side note, Harry has a chance to outperform someone that many fans feel should of been the pick in his spot. I really hope he steps up and does. That with a win would be a great stride in the right direction for him.
I thought he played well last weekend

Veteran Starter w/Big Long Term Deal
Seattle's defense isn't what it was in those years and with having to contend with only the fake crowd noise the offense should be able to get into the 20's.

The key to me is pressuring Wilson with lane containment. If he starts running around the secondary can't come up and help or he'll go over the top. If he starts gouging them with scramble yards maybe we see more zone but that doesn't speak to the Pats strengths.

If they keep Wilson's running yardage down and don't give up big yardage pass plays they have a shot.

2nd Team Getting Their First Start
The key is getting to Wilson. Our secondary can lock their WRs down but if Wilson escapes the pocket and extends plays that‘s where we can get into trouble. Don’t let him escape outside and send some well timed blitzes.

On O we will need to grind it out like last week. Run to set up play action. Folk has to show up and make the kicks.

We got a good shot but I think Seattle will pull out a low scoring game. 20-17

After watching the Seahawks/Falcons game I think that for the first time in a long time we are going into a game with a negative margin of error. If nothing crazy happens -- like Russ getting injured ect. -- even if we play a mostly flawless game we will most probably still need to produce a plus in the turnover column and control the game clock in similar ways as against Miami to come home with a win.

This and the KC game are the hardest on the schedule and given that both happen in the first 4 weeks I'd be shocked by anything better than being 2-2 before the Denver game.

If the Seahawks have problems practicing because of the environment in the area - advantage Pats for sure. Goes without saying this game is more winnable as a road game than it would be in a normal season. Thinking we fall just short but it's not out of the question we win it.

I think Seattles DL can be had in the run game. Looking forward to seeing what happens.

I watched some of the game. Two pretty mediocre defenses. ATL put up 506 yards. Wilson is the best QB in the game.

Key is to not let Wilson break loose for 15-20 yard runs either. I think Lockett will be a factor, not Metcalf. Also interested to see if they get Olsen more involved, he could do damage. Wont be an easy game even without crowd noise. I think we need 24-27 points to win.

Agreed. They were unimpressive in the replays I watched. Their defense is not what it was.
If we can control the game the same way we did against the Dolphins including redzone efficiency, shorten it and on the other side either get a turnover or turn at least 2 TDs into FGs we have a shot.

But ultimately I feel like their offense gives them a bigger margin of error in a league where PI calls often come cheap.

Defensively, the game plan will probably be a lot like 2016’s - contain, contain, contain. Make him beat you from the pocket. Expect a lot more zone - Cover-3/Cover-4 in this game than we usually run. Wilson will, of course, pick that apart. But it gives the defense the best chance of minimizing the damage, as aggravating as it is to watch. Offensively, this SHOULD be a big game for Cam and the RBs on the ground. Their run D is terrible. This would be a nice game to actually have Harris available, for a change.

I think it’s going to be an L. I don’t like how we match up. I think they’ll have 8 in the box, double Edelman, and dare someone else to beat them deep. We have *checks real quick* zero guys who can do that at any level of consistency. I’d love to be wrong, of course.

I'm going to out on a limb here, I think the Patriots pull this one out. The next 2 I'm not so confident about, but who knows. I think we can gash this Seattle defense and stop them once or twice on offense. It may be enough.

Wilson, great QB, athletic, smart, good looking, personable...but onto the Seattle QB, he's the best in the game right now along with Mahomes.
Pats have top DBs and decent discipline in their rush.
Our problem will be scoring. Seattle will be prepared for the RPO offense. No game one surprise. Seahags poor run D helps us.
Rooting hard for a W but Seattle will need to be off and we'll need to be near flawless for a W here.
No crowd noise 12th person and BB as our coach helps here.

All makes sense, but why don't you think James White can find space against these linebackers? Wagner's great but getting older, Brooks is talented but to green for White at this stage. I think McDaniels can scheme up some mismatches there.
