The Seattle Seahawks have the best home-field advantage in the NFL. Not only is CenturyLink Field one of the loudest arenas in sport; the Seahawks have been virtually unbeatable inside their own place. Consider this: in 14 starts at CenturyLink, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson is a perfect 14-0. Now that is just unheard of.
Even though the NFL is jam-packed with “tough guys,” any player or coach will tell you that going to Seattle is pretty much an automatic loss. Therefore, it’s safe to say that the Seahawks have a definite psychological advantage on any team that treks to the Great Northwest…that is until the 14-game winning streak is snapped, right? Well, at least that’s what the Arizona Cardinals are thinking.
You see: the Seahawks need to be extremely careful in Week 16. A loss to the Cardinals might not impact Seattle’s playoff odds per-say, but it would do wonders for the psyche of NFC contenders like the Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles. Once the Seahawks’ mystique is broken it will be often hard for Pete Carroll‘s club to regain mojo that comes from a 14-game run.
With this in mind, I wouldn’t be surprised if Seattle wallops the Cardinals allowing the beast that is Seahawks football to grow larger and larger by the week.
