1. Take a look at the rest of the remaining schedule and just relax, guys.

Aaron Rodgers said it best back in 2016. R-E-L-A-X. Relax. That is the best thing the Seahawks can do the rest of the way. They may have lost games to the Arizona Cardinals, the Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Rams. Well, guess what? Teams lose to the Cardinals, Bills and Rams all the time this year because those are probably three playoff teams we are looking at, and that matters.

Looking ahead at who Seattle has to play the rest of the way, you can see anywhere between four and seven wins. Yes, I am saying there is a pathway that the Seahawks can go undefeated the rest of the way. It is razor thin, but it is not like they have the Kansas City Chiefs or the Pittsburgh Steelers on their schedule. Instead, they have a bunch of division rivals and some NFC East crap.

Seattle has a quick turnaround vs. Arizon on Thursday Night Football in Week 11. This is a team Seattle lost to in overtime a few weeks ago. Revenge will be on the Seahawks’ collective mind for sure. After that, they are probably going to win every game until Christmas: at the Philadelphia Eagles, vs. the New York Giants, vs. the New York Jets and at the Washington Football Team.

Next. 3 things the Packers need to fix for a Super Bowl run. dark

Seattle closes out the year at home vs. the Rams and at the San Francisco 49ers. Even if the Seahawks drop one of those games to an AFC/NFC East opponent, they are in good position to go 5-2 in their final seven games to finish as good as 11-5. That may win the NFC West and will certainly get them into the playoffs. If they were to go 10-6, they are still getting in this season.
