Marshawn Lynch will take on the Bills for the first time since they traded him to Seattle in 2010.
John Snyder: Seahawks 27-10
Seattle tops Buffalo in almost every main position. Russell Wilson is playing great and coming off the 59-0 won against the cardinals, the defense is the X factor. Even without some of the top corners, Richard Sherman is a stud and will cause Fitzpatrick and Stevie Johnson.
Rob Quinn: Seahawks 27-13
I’ve completely lost faith in the Bills as far as the 2012 season is concerned. Chan Gailey is in way over his head in terms of game managing abilities, and it has cost the team games. With Eric Wood, Chris Hairston, and Fred Jackson sidelined, Ryan Fitzpatrick was under pressure against the Rams, and the Seahawks have a better defense than St. Louis. Even without Brandon Browner in the secondary, Richard Sherman might be the best cornerback in the NFL at this moment. Combined with safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, that makes for arguably the best secondary in the league. On offense, rookie quarterback Russel Wilson has been a surprise all year long, leading his team to quite a few unexpected victories. Marshawn Lynch will probably have another monster game and end the streak of games the Bills defense has of not allowing a 100 yard performance on the ground.
Ryan Talbot: Seahawks 20-13
The Bills defense does enough to win another game, but Ryan Fitzpatrick throws a costly pick-six early in the second half that seals our fate. I will go on the record and say that if C.J. Spiller gets 25 carries, the Bills win this game.
Mike Bundt: Seahawks 24-21
I really think the Bills can win this game, almost decided to pick them in an upset. I love the way Buffalo’s D-line has been playing lately and if their offense can step up, this game will be close.

BEST OF MAXIM
Pete Carroll is becoming quite a mean coach with nice talk after the game. However, during the game he’s been ruthless as his Seahawks concluded their 2nd straight 50+ point performance in a row.
We see nothing wrong with running plays that a team wants to practice, and if the other team takes exception, then stop the play.
The Seahawks are humming to a sweet tune these days...
Russell Wilson completed 14-of-23 passes for 205 yards with one touchdown and added nine carries for 92 yards and three touchdowns in the Seahawks’ 50-17 Week 15 win over the Bills. Wilson came into this game with zero touchdowns rushing all season. That was a fluke, and so was this hat trick. Two of his rushing scores came on zone reads during which the Bills failed to cover the...
The Seahawks and 49ers impressed on the road, setting up a monster NFC West clash in Week 16. Seattle became the first team in 62 years to score 50+ in consecutive weeks, while San Francisco became the first team in 10 years to win in Foxboro in December.
Seattle Seahawks (8-5) at Buffalo Bills (5-8)
The Seahawks have the biggest home/road disparity over the last few years. They are 23-43 ATS on the road and 46-20 ATS at home since 2005. This year, they are a perfect 6-0 ATS at home, including 3-0 SU as home dogs, but on the road they are 3-4 ATS. That might not sound bad, until we take a closer look. Two of those covers were in their...
The Ryan Fitzpatrick experience is in year four in Buffalo and the best he has done until this point, is five wins. In order to understand the quarterback a little better, let's look at where he came from.Fitzpatrick was the 250th pick (seventh round), of the St. Louis Rams in the 2005 Draft. He started three games late in the season, after Rams starting quarterback, Jamie Martin...
Another blow out
I don’t know who the hell kidnapped my beloved Seahawks and replaced them with football players who can actually put up mass amounts of points, but I love them dearly!
Again, the Seattle Seahawks put up 50 plus points against a lesser opponent this week.
Their two game point total is now 108, which ties the New England Patriots, from earlier this year, as the third...
PAYS THE BILLS
Tweet The Buffalo Bills had a rough time against Seattle on Sunday, becoming the second consecutive team to surrender 50 or more points to the Seahawks. Among the few bright spots for the Bills was wide receiver Stevie Johnson, who had 8 catches for 115 yards, a touchdown, and this one-handed catch that will [...]
Bills receiver Donald Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against Miami with a calf injury after missing Week 15.Fantasy Spin:Jones hasn't done much of late and isn't a factor in most fantasy lineups. T.J. Graham has seen 15 targets over the past two games to rank second on the team behind Stevie Johnson.
Seahawks come out swinging
Earlier in the week I wrote a piece about why the upcoming game against the Buffalo Bills concerned me. The Seahawks wasted no time relieving me of my concerns as they scored on their first 5 possession, before finally punting the ball on their 6th. By that time the Seahawks offense had already scored 31-points.
In-fact, the Seahawks became just the...
WR Deon Butler was signed to the roster to fill Charly Martin's role as the fifth wide receiver on the active roster, but he's been listed as inactive for the game. And as expected, Walter Thurmond has joined Marcus Trufant as an injury scratch on the sideline along with CB DeShawn Shead. The four cornerbacks who will be active for the game are Richard Sherman, Jeremy...
Fake punts are typically reserved for critical do-or-die situations, but for the Seattle Seahawks, they're business as usual. Up by 30 points over the Buffalo Bills early in the fourth quarter, the Seahawks opted to run a fake punt, which went for 29 yards. Seattle got a field goal out of the drive in closing out a 50-17 win. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said after the game that...
The Bills annual “home game” in Toronto takes place this Sunday against Seattle. The Bills are about finished for this season, but they can play spoiler to the 8-5 Seahawks who are battling for a Wildcard spot. Can the Bills do it? Perhaps. As for other predictions, let’s see what the writer’s of Queen City Sports think about this game!
Writer’s Note: Due to unforeseen...
Do you remember the game the Seattle Seahawks played against the Cardinals on Sunday? You know the 58-Nil beat-down handed out by the defense and Marshawn Lynch? Yeah, you might as well forget about it. I say this for two reasons. The first is that in a game like that, where everything goes your way, it doesn’t tell you much about who your team is. The defense absolutely dominated...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Buffalo Bills' Toronto Series matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.Nick's take:It'll be fun to again see C.J. Spiller in the expanded role he deserves. However, the fact that the Bills are playing it what essentially amounts to a neutral site in Toronto eliminates Buffalo'...
I was hanging out in the booth at a fine local bar by my crib. Pretty much I was waiting for the Bills game to come on and brass myself for another disappointing Sunday where Twitter entertains me more than the actual football product. To my right, I noticed a bunch of diehard Steelers fans. I know this has been repeated a few times by me and others, but I've always been envious...
