Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The first two weeks of the season haven’t been kind to the NFC West. Right now, the division looks similar to 2010, when the Seahawks won it with a 7-9 record. The Seahawks didn’t score a touchdown this season until the fourth quarter in Week 2. Seattle is sitting at 1-1 right now, leading the division by virtue of beating another NFC West team, the 49ers. Otherwise they might still be winless. Russell Wilson’s doing his best, but the offensive line is atrocious. Even Seattle’s talent on defense isn’t enough to overcome the weaknesses on the other side of the ball. And speaking of San Francisco, they’re lingering at the bottom of this division with no wins so far. Few people had high expectations
