The Seahawks have a record of 6-3 in the season and will be coming into Sunday’s match after a huge victory against Arizona Cardinals. The team scored a total of 31 points and gained a ten-point advantage over the opponent team, earning a top position in the NFC west.
The Seahawks have scored an average of 26.8 points per game in the season, putting them in 4th place in the league. The team’s defence has surrendered an average of 24.4 points per game and is ranked 22nd in the league. The team’s wide receiver, Marquis Goodwin, maybe not be playing in the coming game as he is down with an injury, and the team is likely to miss his input.

The team played its last match against the Los Angeles Rams on 7th November and won by a score of 16:13, putting an end to their three-game losing streak. Although the team won, the points scored put a big question mark on their performance. However, since the Buccaneers play in the NFC South, they are highly likely to win the division. The opponent team put up a really strong defence and contained the score. Overall it was a tough one.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have surrendered an average of 18.2 points, while their offence is also scoring an average of 18 points per contest. While their defence puts them at 5th in the league, their offence ranks much lower and is in 25th place in the league.
Seattle Seahawks vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Prediction
The Sunday game will be the first of the NFL Munich chapter. From the Buccaneers’ side, Tom Brady and Leonard Fournette will be the players to watch. Brady is ranked second in the NFL, having passed 2547 yards, 10 touchdowns, and one interception. On the other hand, Fournette has passed 45 yards per game and 33 yards per carry.
Geno Smith will be the one to watch from the Seahawks’ side. The player is ranked 6th in the league, having thrown 2199 yards and 15 touchdowns, putting him at 5th in the NFL and 10 interceptions.
The upcoming game has all the potential to be a close game, and only time will tell how the tides turn. However, if the recent performance is any indicator, the Buccaneers could take this one, particularly if Brady and Fournette deliver for the team and the defence contains the Hawks’ offence.
