The Seahawks enter this contest as winners of their last four games, showing no signs of slowing down. Their latest victory was a 31-21 effort against the rival Arizona Cardinals, solidifying the Seahawks’ lead atop the NFC West.
On the other hand, the Buccaneers put an end to their three-game losing skid with a 16-13 victory against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Quarterback Tom Brady looked like his old self as he led his team to a last-minute game-winning drive, ending the night by completing 36-of-58 completions for 280 passing yards and a touchdown.

Many pegged the Seahawks to be one of the worst teams in the NFL, but they’ve managed to defy expectations. They’re 5-1 straight up in their last six games and their four-game winning streak is the third-longest in the league at the moment.
A big chunk of the Seahawks’ success stems from how well Geno Smith has excelled under center. The 32-year-old veteran leads all QBs with a 73.1% completion rating while racking up 2,199 passing yards and 15 touchdowns with only four interceptions.
Smith’s career resurgence has led to the Seahawks averaging the fourth-most points (26.8) in the NFL. It’s going to be interesting to see if the Buccaneers can keep pace, especially with how their 14.8 PPG clip since Week 6 ranks fifth-worst.
The key to the Bucs re-discovering their offense will rely on the health of their pass-catchers. It’s been rare for Tampa Bay to have all of its wideouts and tight ends healthy this fall, proven by
Russell Gage and Cameron Brate missing last week’s game.
This Seahawks vs Buccaneers matchup could offer Tampa Bay an opportunity to give the passing game a jolt. Seattle gives up the 13th-most passing yards on the road (235.6), as well as 2.2 touchdowns per game away from home — tied for fourth-most in the league.
Can Tom Brady and the Bucs take advantage of the Seahawks’ passing defense?
It’s also going to be interesting to see if the Seahawks’ passing game can handle the Buccaneers’ secondary. Seattle’s passing attack has been its bread and butter this year, but Tampa Bay is only giving up the fifth-fewest yards through the air per game.
Something else that gives the Bucs an edge is that Brady is a different beast on an international stage. The legendary gunslinger is 3-0 in games outside of the United State, racking up 952 yards and 10 touchdowns while outscoring opponents 113-22 over that stretch.
Granted, it’s been five years since Brady’s last international game, but history has proven that you can never count out TB12. Now that he’s feeling himself after last week’s victory, he’s going to do what he can to take it out on the Seahawks.
As great as Seattle has been this season, I’m going with the Buccaneers here. They’ve underperformed lately, but the buzz around the NFL’s Munich debut is going to push Brady and co. to be at the top of their game.
As far as the best bet goes, I’m taking the Buccaneers at -2.5 on the spread. They may not have spread luck lately, but I can see them beating the Seahawks by at least three points. After all, Seattle is 5-13-2 against the spread in its last 20 games against the NFC South.
I’m also backing the total going under 44.5 points. International games mean jet lag, which can affect players’ performances. Throw in the fact that there haven’t been a ton of points as of late in the Buccaneers’ games (average total of 35.2 points over last five games) and the under makes a lot more sense.
