There are three teams in the NFC that are 2-0 after Sunday’s action, but one of them stands tall above the rest after a rainy slugfest that saw the Seattle Seahawks dominate the San Francisco 49ers in the second half. What did we learn from that game? Russell Wilson and company are out for more than just the NFC West title this year.
The New Orleans Saints barely squeaked by the woeful Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday to improve to 2-0 while the Chicago Bears tried to give a game away to the Minnesota Vikings, who are average at best. Meanwhile, the 49ers topped many power rankings lists throughout the football world after Week 1, but Colin Kaepernick and company looked like a .500 team against Seattle.
So now we know the Seahawks have the best defense in the league, arguably the best running back in Marshawn Lynch and a quarterback in Wilson, who is still underrated. How that’s possible, I have no idea, but I do know the Seahawks and Denver Broncos are now the obvious favorites to represent their respective conferences in the Big Game. And at this point, can anyone really argue that?
