The Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals are two of the most exciting young teams in the NFL. The Seahawks are coming off a bye week, while the Bengals are coming off a win over the Arizona Cardinals. All in all, both teams are looking to continue their winning ways in Week 6.
Seattle Seahawks Are Full of Surprises
The Seahawks have been one of the surprises of the season so far. They are currently 3-1 and in first place in the NFC West. Furthermore, they have a balanced offense led by Seahawk’s quarterback Geno Smith and running back Kenneth Walker III. Smith has been solid this season, completing 68.3% of his passes for 846 yards and 5 touchdowns. Finally, Walker has been a breakout star, rushing for 283 yards and 5 touchdowns on 64 carries.
The Seahawks’ defense has also been playing well. They are allowing just 20.3 points per game, which is the 10th-best mark in the NFL. The Seahawks’ defense is led by safety Jamal Adams and linebacker Bobby Wagner. Adams is one of the most versatile defenders in the NFL, and Wagner is one of the best tacklers in the NFL.
Cincinnati Bengals and Joe Burrow
The Bengals are coming off a disappointing season in 2022, but they have looked much better so far in 2023. They are currently 2-3, but they have been in every game they have played. Cincinnati has a dynamic offense led by the Bengal’s quarterback Joe Burrow and wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase. Burrow is one of the most talented quarterbacks in the NFL, yet his injury has caused his downfall this year. In addition, Chase is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL.
The Bengals’ defense has been a bit of a question mark so far this season, but they have shown some signs of improvement. They are allowing 24.2 points per game, which is the 22nd-best mark in the NFL. The Bengals’ defense is led by linebacker Logan Ryan and defensive end Trey Hendrickson. All in all, Ryan is one of the smartest linebackers in the NFL. Meanwhile, Hendrickson is one of the best pass rushers in the NFL.
Matchup to Watch this Sunday
The matchup to watch in this game is the Seahawks’ defense against the Bengals’ offense. The Seahawks have a good defense, but the Bengals have a great offense. If the Seahawks can slow down the Bengals’ offense, they will have a good chance of winning the game.
Prediction for Seahawks vs Bengals
I predict that the Bengals will win the game by a score of 27-24. The Bengals have a better offense than the Seahawks, and they are playing at home. However, the Seahawks are a good team, and they will make the Bengals work for the win.
