    Won 80% of the Last 10 Picks.

    The Hawks were supposed to fall apart when the Legion of Boom disbanded. That collapse never happened as expected- Bobby Wagner has anchored a defense that has been good enough to power Seattle to the 10th-best point differential in the league. Both teams are fighting for wild-card spots, so there is plenty of motivation to go around, should be a good game but Seattle has the better offense, better defense and playing at home. Easy decision for me.

    My Pick: Seattle -3

    I hate the Bears so I desperately want Vikings to win but I also want to make money so I'm going with Seahawks. Wilson is just too good right now and Kirk Cousins is getting exposed for the mediocre QB that he is. This game is really important for both teams and I expect a low-scoring affair in this one. I would probably go UNDER 46 and maybe even UNDER for the 1st quarter.

    I am looking towards locking in at (-3 Seattle). Russel is RED HOT and it looks like Seattle found their running back(s) and not to mention they will have homefield advantage tonight. HOWEVER this morning I saw Doug Baldwin doubtful with a groin injury. Does anyone think this will change the outcome of the game tonight?

      Doug Baldwin was their 3rd best receiver and he usually provided 3-5 receptions a game....so he will certainly be missed. TE David Morgan out for Vikings tonight so let's call it a wash.

      With Baldwin out the OVER props for Tyler Lockett total receiving yards is worth a look...

    Hugely important game for both teams and with two top 10 caliber defenses it should be a physical game. The running games certainly could be relevant, but unless Mike Zimmer directs Dalvin Cook to get more carries, who cares? Cousins has to play well on the big stage. The Vikes rank 30th in the NFL in rushing, and average a chilling 2 yards per carry in the red zone. With the crowd in Seattle acting like every game is the first Van Halen concert with Sammy Hagar and noise being a certifiable distraction, a stout ground attack is oft the great elixir it can mitigate the disruption. Nothing quiets a crowd like pushing the ball methodically down the field, 4-to-6 yards at a time. Problem is, Minnesota never does that. The running scene of Seattle does, to the tune of 148.8 per game (tops in the NFL), and that will be the difference Monday night. Score: Seahawks 27, Vikings 21

    My Pick: Seattle -3

    Won 60% of the Last 10 Picks.

    Looking at the numbers, Minnesota ranks fifth in yards allowed per rush (3.7) and seventh in rushing yards allowed per game (99.2), I think this makes this a matchup of strengths which favors Seattle. The Seahawks thrive in the trenches and even though they are committed to running the ball, they showed two weeks ago in Charlotte that they can switch gears and win a game through the air. Sure, the Seahawks have beaten up on their share of bad opponents, but they're playing at home, where they're 15-2 in prime-time games under Pete Carroll.

    My Pick: Seattle -3

    Field Gulls: NFL Playoff Race: Seahawks all but assured a playoff spot with a win over Vikings


    The results from Week 14 worked out very favorably for the Seattle Seahawks, and mostly favorable for the Minnesota Vikings. Regardless of the outcome on Monday Night Football, both teams will still occupy the two wild card spots, but merely flip places.

    According to the trusty New York Times Playoff Machine, a win over the Vikings is as close as you can get to clinching a playoff berth without officially clinching.

    With the Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers, and Washington all sitting at 6-7, while the Green Bay Packers are 5-7-1, the Seahawks are now in a position where beating Minnesota and then suffering an inexplicable collapse to 8-8 more likely than not will get them a wild card berth.

     Minnesota Vikings vs Seattle Seahawks on 2018-12-10 added by Covers

    Consensus betting prediction from the Covers.com community:
    Seattle Seahawks
    (68% consensus). The Seattle Seahawks saw any hopes of winning the NFC West evaporate when the division-rival Los Angeles Rams opened the season 8-0. The Seahawks' playoff chances also appeared to take a major hit after back-to-back losses to both Los Angeles teams, but they have bounced back and carry a three-game winning streak into Monday night's contest against the visiting Minnesota Vikings... http://bit.ly/2B5DAbg

    Field Gulls: Seahawks-Vikings on Monday Night Football: Kickoff time, TV coverage, radio, ESPN live stream, more


    The Seattle Seahawks (7-5) are in prime position to return to the playoffs thanks to their three-game winning streak, combined with other results breaking their way. Tonight on Monday Night Football, they take on the Minnesota Vikings (6-5-1), who are in reasonably good playoff positioning themselves but could find themselves in some trouble if they lose to Seattle.

    This is the second MNF appearance for the Seahawks this season, with the Week 2 game ending in a 24-17 loss to the Chicago Bears and their vaunted defense. Since then, the offense has been top-10 both in pass and run, and their recent hot streak comes at a time when the defense has been struggling.

    Fansided: Seahawks vs. Vikings will come down to Russell Wilson's greatness

    In the two-and-a-half seasons before 2018, the Seahawks needed quarterback Russell Wilson to be great nearly every game to win. In 2018, while Wilson still needed to be very good, Seattle has found a running game again and this has created more diversity for Seattle's offense.

    On Monday Night Football, though, the running game will probably not be very good. Not only are the Vikings really good against the run, but Seattle will be missing large human D.J. Fluker. Chris Carson will still get some yards and Brian Schottenheimer will surely try to force the run.

    The Minnesota Vikings still hold onto that sixth seed after the games that took place on Sunday (thankfully), but did fall two games back in the division after Chicago's win against the Rams. Now the Vikings need to thank the football gods by putting a whooping on the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night and secure a win.

    A win in Seattle isn't going to come easy and hopefully the Vikings make it a good matchup, especially for primetime. I broke down a few things to watch for this week:

    Fansided: When was the last time the Vikings won a game in Seattle?

    Back in 1976 the Minnesota Vikings got a 27-21 win in their first ever matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Since that victory, the Vikings have won just four of their last 14 games against the Seahawks, including the playoffs.

    On Monday, Minnesota will attempt to get their first victory in Seattle since Week 7 of the 2006 season. That year, the Vikings left the Seahawks' home stadium with an impressive 31-13 win.

    Going into the half of this matchup, the game was actually tied at 10 apiece. But once the second half came around, Minnesota found their mojo and outscored Seattle 21-3 to cruise to an easy victory.

    Fansided: Injury report: 3 players out for Minnesota Vikings in Week 14 vs Seahawks

    In Week 14 of the 2018 NFL season, all eyes will be on the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks when they face off in a prime-time matchup on Monday Night Football where quite a bit will be on the line.

    Both teams are in the playoff hunt, but neither are atop their division. For the Vikings, there is still a chance they could claim the NFC North. On the other hand, Seattle is out of luck in that department since the Rams already have the NFC West crown.

    Both teams will need as much talent on the field as possible in order to get a win.

    Daily Norseman: Vikings at Seahawks Week 14 Preview: Darkest Timeline


    One of my favorite relatively unheralded TV shows of all time is Community. It was an incredibly clever, irreverent, and fast-paced comedy that had a sneakily star-studded cast. Even if you have never seen the show, you have inevitably seen Joel McHale, Donald Glover, John Oliver, Chevy Chase, Ken Jeong, Alison Brie, Jonathan Banks, and the rest of the cast in a multitude of other projects. While it was on air (and then canceled, and then revived online), it was my favorite weekly dose of silly yet sharp humor.

    The most discussed episode from the show also happens to be my favorite of its 110-episode run, titled "Remedial Chaos Theory.

    The Seattle Times: Former Seahawks defensive tackles Sheldon Richardson and Tom Johnson now with Vikings and want to show Seattle what they are missing


    A pair of former Seahawks return Monday with the Vikings, still seemingly miffed at how Seattle let them get away.

    As Seahawks coach Pete Carroll long figured they might, Tom Johnson and Sheldon Richardson loom as key players Monday night when Seattle hosts the Minnesota Vikings.

    Carroll, though, didn't really anticipate the two would be teaming up for the Vikings against Seattle.

    Instead, when Seattle traded for Richardson prior to the 2017 season, the Seahawks thought they were acquiring a player who would be a vital cog of the defense for years to come.

    And when Seattle signed Johnson last spring, in part because Richardson got away via free agency, the Seahawks figured they'd brought in a player who would not only play a significant role on defense but also, as a 34-year-old with eight years in the NFL, add leadership in the locker room.

    Fansided: Experts think the Seahawks will beat the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14

    Once again, for the third time in four weeks, the Minnesota Vikings will be locked in a prime-time affair against the surging Seattle Seahawks in a game that will have major implications on the playoff race.

    Their game on Monday Night Football will be a chance for the Vikings to prove they belong among the NFL's best in the playoff picture and inch closer to the division-leading Chicago Bears while Seattle's division is already locked down by the Los Angeles Rams.

    Experts aren't liking the chances of Minnesota during this contest, with a majority of them choosing the Seahawks to defend their home turf.
