Seahawks tied with Packers for second-best odds to win NFC Championship
Wed, Dec 2nd 3:25pm EST
The NFC Championship race will be interesting to watch this season. Each big-name team in the NFC has a glaring flaw right now, including the Saints (QB), Packers (rushing defense), and Seahawks (passing defense). This race will come down to matchups, as each team's opposing strengths will almost entirely dictate their odds to win, as we don't really have a complete team to favor here. I'm not a big fan of Seattle here, as their poor passing defense makes them incredibly vulnerable to late-game comebacks even if they get out to a big lead. They'll need to compensate by running out the clock on offense, which they can do, but I don't know if that will be a viable strategy against possible opposing quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.
