If you pay attention to social media outlets, sports blogs, and informative websites around the country Seattle, WA is the epicenter of the football universe. The Seahawks are gaining more and more respect everyday and Vegas has picked them to win the Super Bowl. This is not surprising given the way Seattle has dismantled their first three opponents by an average of 19.7 points per game. The next victim on the path to the Lombardi Trophy is the Houston Texans.
When the season started the Texans were a legitimate pick to go to the Super Bowl, but that was ages ago. Now the Texans will be lucky to win their division much less face the Hawks in February. Arian Foster is a shell of his former self and Matt Schaub folds like a bad poker hand when the pressure is on. Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins are a formidable duo at the wide receiver position unless they play a team with 6'3 corners and the best safety in the game roaming around the secondary waiting to light them up. Then they're just average.
The Seahawks on the other hand have everything going for them right now. Russell Wilson found his groove again and the running game can't be stopped. J.J. Watt and Brian Cushing will swear you need a special license to operate that bulldozer with the #24 on his back. Beastmode will be in full effect. As for the NFL's #1 defense? Look for them to atone for last week's performance giving up 17 points and 265 yards to Jacksonville. They have to take their frustration out on someone and that someone will be the Houston Texans.
Long story short, the Seahawks will smash the Texans like a bull in a China shop (I tried to use a metaphor Texans fans would understand). I'll recap the victory on Monday with all the juicy details. Until the next time lets all keep a SeahawkCentric state of mind shall we?
