Team Outlook and Scouting Report

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: MIXED BAG (UP OVERALL)

The Seahawks are contenders to win the conference, but they have seen their chances go up and down this season. In our pre-season forecast they had a 1.7% chance of reaching the Super Bowl. On 9/18 they had a 0.8% chance before increasing to 8.8% on 10/31. From the start of the season to now their chances are up significantly to 2.7%. Before the start of their 2 game losing streak they were at 8.5%. They will be fighting for a playoff spot (currently projected to finish #7 in the conference) and have a 32% chance of making the playoffs. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the NFC at 0.7% (150/1 odds) and a 0.3% chance of winning it all (300/1). In simulations they win the Super Bowl 1.1% of the time.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: B-

Early in the season, we include last season in the analysis. At 4-5 the Seahawks are exceeding expectations. The combined projected win total based on per game money lines is 3.8 wins. If you consider winning as an underdog or winning by 10+ as a slight favorite, then they have 3 good wins vs 0 bad losses. They have come up especially short at home. Their 1-2 home record is -10% lower than their expected win percentage. Over the past 3 weeks they have played poorly going 1-2, 33%. The Seahawks are a good team (in simulations) and won 55.7% of the simulations vs every other team playing on a neutral court with players available in the playoffs (#8 in the league). They have moved up from #19 in the league back on 9/18.

They are an average team in points per game. Offensively, they are the #22 ranked team in yards per play. They are the #11 ranked team in offensive TD rate [(PassTD + RushTD) / (Pass Att + Rush Att)]. They are an above average scoring defense, despite a lower TD per play allowed rate.
