Seattle Seahawks: 11-5. Based on last year’s records, the Seahawks have the fifth toughest schedule. But they face just one returning playoff team in the first nine weeks of the season and have a chance to get off to a hot start. Russell Wilson played the best football of his career during the second half of 2015, and the Seahawks’ defense led the NFL in fewest points allowed for the fourth consecutive year.
There are question marks for sure (most notably, the offensive line), but this should be a playoff team again in 2016.
The Seattle Seahawks rank as one of the surest bets to make the 2016 National Football League playoffs in the latest odds released by Las Vegas.
Seattle is coming off a 10-6 season but made it to the NFC divisional round before a furious, 24-point comeback fell short against the Carolina Panthers.
Though tasked with replacing superstar running back Marshawn Lynch and linebacker Bruce Irvin, Seattle isn’t expected by Bovada to have any trouble doing so.
