Patriots vs. Seahawks: Bold Predictions for New England's Week 6 Game

Let's take a look at my bold predictions for New England's Week 6 match-up against the Seattle Seahawks.

By the time you're reading this, we're probably just hours away from kickoff at CenturyLink Field in Seattle as the New England Patriots will take on the Seattle Seahawks.

But before the game actually begins, let's take a look at my bold predictions for this Week 6 match-up.

1. Tom Brady will throw for only 225 yards

Let's face it: Seattle's defense is tough. They're ranked as the best defense in the NFL while the Patriots are ranked as the top offense. However, I have always said that when it comes down to offense vs. defense—the defense will prevail.

I'm not saying Tom Brady will have a bad game, I'm just saying he's not going to be as productive as he usually is.

2. Marshawn Lynch will be held to under 100 yards

Marshawn Lynch has had two 100-yard rushing games this season and he won't be having his third one against New England's defense.

Bill Belichick is obviously quite aware that Lynch is essentially Seattle's defense and that if the Patriots want to walk away with a victory, then they're going to have to shut-down Lynch.

3. Russell Wilson will throw two interceptions

As Seattle does it's best job to slow down New England's top ranked offense, rookie quarterback Russell Wilson will simply be out-done by New England's defense.

With the Patriots taking Lynch out of the game and causing him to be a non-factor, that will ultimately put the ball in Wilson's hands—and he will not succeed.

4. Aaron Hernandez will score a touchdown

With Aaron Hernandez likely playing Sunday afternoon, I see the tight end coming up big for the Patriots in his return.

Hernandez has been sidelined the past three weeks with an ankle injury and he will likely be suiting up and playing for New England.

There's no question that Hernandez is a play-maker and an impact player. With that being said, he'll end up scoring his second touchdown of the season against the Seahawks.

5. Final prediction: New England: 24 Seattle: 17

Home-field advantage will come into effect Sunday afternoon in Seattle, but it simply wont be enough to stop the reigning AFC Champions.

The Seahawks are a very talented football team, don't get wrong—but New England is just a far superior team and will simply find a way to walk away from the NFL's loudest stadium with a huge victory.
