The Seattle Seahawks (4-0) take on the Indianapolis Colts (3-1) at Lucas Oil Stadium this Sunday. Kickoff starts at 1 P.M. on FOX. This game deserves a primetime television slot, as the two teams have been absolutely dominant thus far. It’s almost mind boggling how well-matched these two teams are. There’s only about 20 yards separating total yards per game (352 for Seattle and 373 for Indianapolis) and passing yards per game (208 and 223). On defense, both teams have compiled more than 10 sacks already, and at least six interceptions. Then there’s the similarity between quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck. Both are completing over 60 percent of their passes and have passer ratings of at least 91. Let’s also not forget what these guys can do on the ground, as both have exhibited their athleticism when there hasn’t been anything available downfield. These two young quarterbacks are leading their teams to potential division titles, and neither is going to want to slow down their production anytime soon. And I don’t think they will be contained that much this Sunday. Andrew Luck (Photo credit: Gregory Shamus/Getty Images) Luck’s intelligence in the pocket is astounding. He just doesn’t make mistakes, at least not very often. He’s calculating and efficient under center, and not even Richard Sherman and the rest of the Seattle secondary is going to stop him from putting up at least 200 yards through the air. Seattle’s front four ought to make Luck show off his mobility, especially since Michael Bennett, Chris Clemons, and Brandon Mebane are listed as probable. Despite the pressure the Hawks will force, Luck’s intelligence and natural ability will result in several scores for the Colts. Wilson didn’t have a great passing day at Houston, but his meager 123 yards shouldn’t be making Seattle fans feeling uncomfortable about Sunday. It’s important to keep in mind that normal offensive linemen Russell Okung, Breno Giacomini, and Max Unger were all injured, which made it easy for guys like J.J. Watt to make Wilson uncomfortable. Giacomini and Unger are still listed as questionable for Sunday, but even if they don’t play, Wilson will still have a better time of it in the pocket. The Houston’s defensive line is much harder to handle than the Colts’ line, and so Hawks fans shouldn’t be worried about a limited passing attack this weekend. Yes, Robert Mathis will likely force Wilson out of the pocket a few times, but that’s hardly worrisome considering what Wilson can do on the run. Wilson will surely pick up 200 yards and a score through the air. I also wouldn’t be surprised if Wilson picked up his first rushing score this Sunday. Analysts this week have claimed the Seahawks could lose their first game this weekend. While I will say the game is sure to be another close one, Seattle’s got such a momentum boost coming off the dramatic win in Houston. Seattle proved to be resilient and able to make adjustments at halftime, and they’re just firing on all cylinders right now. I foresee this game being put away within the final minute.
