New England vs Seattle Pick – Final Word
In developing our New England vs Seattle pick, we find that the Seahawks have a solid chance of taking this contest. However, Wilson and company must face a very tough defense and what may be one of the best pass defenses in the league. At the same time, Newton is a wildcard type of player. He’s a true option QB who can run, pass, and quickly toss the ball to a running back. In his first game for the Pats last week, Newton looked solid running a brand-new offense. Thus, we think that New England will keep it close. We’re taking the Patriots at +4.0. Along with this pick, see our Kansas City versus Los Angeles prediction.
