Coming off one of the biggest wins in franchise history, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks face the Buffalo Bills Sunday at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada.
The Seahawks demolished the Arizona Cardinals 58-0 last week, with running back Marshawn Lynch gaining 128 yards and three touchdowns on 11 carries, and the Seattle defense forcing eight Arizona turnovers.
Lynch is now second in the NFL with 1,266 rushing yards and he, along with Wilson, have the Seahawks poised for a playoff run. Seattle currently holds the top NFC wild card spot, but have two difficult match-ups with the San Francisco 49ers and the St. Louis Rams to close the season.
The 5-8 Bills are currently a major long shot for the post season, and may miss the playoffs for the 13th straight season.
Buffalo saw much of their playoff hopes dashed after falling 15-12 to the Rams. The Bills led for most of the contest, but couldn’t hold St. Louis on their final drive and gave up a 13-yard touchdown reception to receiver Brandon Gibson with 48 seconds remaining.
The Bills field the sixth ranked rushing offense in the league, but only managed 61 yards on the ground against the Rams.
Their running game suffered a blow this week, as Buffalo placed running back Fred Jackson on injured reserve due to a sprained MCL. Jackson had played in 10 games this season, totaling 437 rushing yards.
The injury places more emphasis on running back C.J. Spiller, who leads the Bills with 944 yards and five touchdowns.
The game begins at 4:05 p.m. EDT and will be shown by FOX, or watch a live stream online by purchasing NFL Sunday Ticket Max.
Betting Odds: Seattle is favored by 6 points
Over/Under: 43.5 points
Prediction: Lynch and Wilson should dominate this game, and the Seattle defense will shutdown Spiller. The Seahawks should win, and focus their efforts on the NFC West race.
Predicted Score: Seattle 27, Buffalo 10
