NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Seattle. According to latest NFL trends, Seattle is 4-1 ATS L5 home games. The Seahawks will take on one of the top offenses in the NFL, but it’s never easy to travel to the state of Washington from the East Coast. Seattle has been tough on opposing offenses at CenturyLink Field, where they beat Dallas, 27-7 on Sept. 16 and then handed Green Bay a 14-12 defeat eight days later. Seattle’s defense was on form again last week, beating Carolina 16-12 last week, despite turning it over three times. The Seahawks rank 5th in the NFL against the pass (192ypg) and third in the NFL against the run (66.6ypg). Seattle’s pass defense works well because they have big and strong bump-and-run corners who can overpower smaller receivers, which New England has.
