A glorious run by the Seattle Seahawks came to an end on the final Sunday of the regular season and it could be just the beginning. Seattle’s streak of five straight playoff appearances and seasons with 10 or more wins was ended by the Cardinals in a 26-24 loss. Their playoff hopes were hanging by a thread and the Seahawks needed a win and a loss by Atlanta. Neither occurred and the team will try to figure out how to get its mojo back for next season.
Not only did the Seahawks lose some of their best defensive players to season-ending injuries, they also lost what had been the best home field advantage in the NFL. Usually a nightmare for opposing teams, the Link was turned upside down after the Seahawks lost their final two games and four of the last five to finish their home slate at 4-4. Over the previous five seasons they had gone 34-6 at home during the regular season.
The biggest question mark moving forward remains the health of Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Cliff Avril, who were all lost during the year putting an end to the Legion of Boom. Chancellor and Avril both sustained neck injuries that could impact a future return to the game and Sherman will need ample time to recover from his Achilles injury. Without three Pro Bowl players on that side of the football, the defense struggled, especially in back-to-back losses to the Jags and Rams after Seattle had moved to 8-4 with a 20-10 win over Philadelphia in Week 13.

Week 17: Cardinals 26, Seahawks 24
ATS Result: Cardinals +8
Over/Under Total Result: Over 38
Seattle overcame a horrible start, outscoring the Cards 17-3 to start the second half to grab a 24-23 lead in the fourth quarter. But Drew Stanton drove Arizona into field goal range where Phil Dawson connected for the fourth time for the eventual game-winning points. Taking over at his 25 with a little over two minutes to play, Russell Wilson led the Seahawks to the Cards 40, only to have Blair Walsh shank his kick wide right.
Week 16: Seahawks 21, Cowboys 12
ATS Result: Seahawks +4.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 47
It wasn’t pretty but the Seahawks got the win to keep their season alive. They scored three times off Dallas turnovers to break a two-game SU and ATS losing streak, and kept the Boys out of the end zone to cash the under. Russell Wilson threw for just 93 yards, but two short scoring passes allowed the Seahawks to get the victory.
Week 15: Rams 42, Seahawks 7
ATS Result: Rams -1
Over/Under Total Result: Over 47.5
The Seahawks failed in every aspect and suffered their second straight ATS loss in a game that was over by halftime. Two fumbles and a punt on their first seven possessions gave the Rams excellent field position and LA jumped out to a 34-0 halftime lead. Seattle avoided the shutout on Wilson’s scoring pass late in the third, but it was an otherwise dismal performance all the way around. Wilson made over bettors happy with a grounding call in his end zone that resulted in a safety for the game’s final points.
Week 14: Jaguars 30, Seahawks 24
ATS Result: Jaguars -3
Over/Under Total Result: Over 41
What was thought to be a defensive struggle turned into a slugfest and the Seahawks couldn’t contain Blake Bortles in the second half. Russell Wilson tossed three picks with two coming in the second half to thwart drives. Seattle tied the game 10-10 midway through the third but the Jags scored on the very next offensive play starting a 17-0 spurt. Wilson got the Hawks within six late in the fourth and they got the ball back, but they couldn’t convert a fourth down play and the Jags ran out the clock for the cover win.
Week 13: Seahawks 24, Eagles 10
ATS Result: Seahawks +3.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 46.5
The Seahawks gave up over 400 yards, but they held the Eagles to just 10 points and let Wilson handle the offensive chores. Wilson tossed three touchdown passes to three different receivers and added another 31 yards on the ground. Leading 10-3 early in the third, Sheldon Richardson forced a fumble deep in Seattle territory to thwart a potential game-tying drive. On the ensuing drive, Wilson connected with Tyler Lockett for a 17-3 bulge giving Seattle the ATS win.
Week 12: Seahawks 24, 49ers 13
ATS Result: Seahawks -7
Over/Under Total Result: Under 45
The defense stymied the Niners all day and Wilson eventually came around. After a scoreless first quarter that included an interception and a missed field goal, Wilson cashed in a Niners’ miscue, sneaking into the end zone. After S.F. closed the gap to 7-6, Wilson tossed scoring passes on consecutive drives and Blair Walsh made a field goal for a comfortable lead and cover that Jimmy Garoppolo couldn’t erase with his first touchdown pass as a Niner.
Week 11: Falcons 34, Seahawks 31
ATS Result: Falcons -1
Over/Under Total Result: Over 46
It was a brutal start and a painful finish for the Seahawks, who lost their second straight home game and failed to cover the spread. They fell behind 14-0, giving up a long kickoff return and an interception then having a fumble returned for a score against them. They were playing catch up all night and couldn’t quite do it. Blair Walsh’s 52-yard field goal attempt in the final seconds was their last chance and it fell a few feet short of tying the game.
Week 10: Seahawks 22, Cardinals 16
ATS Result: PUSH Seahawks -6
Over/Under Total Result: Under 40
Russell Wilson pulled off the play of the season with his scrambling, back-foot throw to Doug Baldwin that went for 54-yards leading to a touchdown that gave the Seahawks a 22-10 lead. After containing Stanton all night, they let him throw for 60 yards on a drive that resulted in touchdown with 20 seconds left. Lane was able to get the edge and deflect the PAT, giving the Seahawks a push while falling below the closing total for the fourth time in the last five games.
Week 9: Redskins 17, Seahawks 14
ATS Result: Redskins +8
Over/Under Total Result: Under 44.5
Seattle battled back from a 10-2 deficit o take the lead on Wilson’s scoring pass with 94 seconds left. But that turned out to be too much time for Kirk Cousins. About 60 seconds too much. Cousins led the Skins 70-yards to the game-winning score in 35 seconds, handing the Seahawks a second straight ATS loss. Three missed field goals and two failed two-point conversions didn’t help and allowed the under to cash.
Week 8: Seahawks 41, Texans 38
ATS Result: Texans +6
Over/Under Total Result: Over 45
The lead changed five times in the second half and it was Seattle that had the last one thanks to Wilson’s fourth scoring pass of the game. The D was gouged for over 500 yards and Watson tossed four touchdown passes of his own making the over an easy winner. But Wilson had some magic, particularly on the game-winning drive. He drove the team 80-yards in just over a minute with no time outs for the win, but the Seahawks couldn’t cover the 6-point spread.
Week 7: Seahawks 24, Giants 7
ATS Result: Seahawks -4
Over/Under Total Result: Under 39
After a sluggish start that saw them score three points in the first half, the Seahawks turned it on and ran away from the Giants for their third straight cover. Russell Wilson tossed three scoring passes and Seattle scored the final 24 points to erase an early deficit. The defense was exceptional again, holding New York to 177 total yards, keeping them off the scoreboard after a turnover gave the Giants a short field.
Week 6: BYE
Week 5: Seahawks 16, Rams 10
ATS Result: Seahawks +2
Over/Under Total Result: Under 47
When you create five turnovers you should win, and the Seahawks did – barely. Despite the defensive dominance, it took a little luck on a late throw into the endzone that escaped the grasp of Rams receiver Cooper Kupp. After failing to cover the spread the first three outings, the Seahawks have won two straight ATS and silenced the Rams high scoring offense for an easy under win.
Week 4: Seahawks 46, Colts 18
ATS Result: Seahawks -12.5
Over/Under Total Result: Over 41.5
Things looked bleak for Seattle backers at halftime with the Colts up 15-10 and 12.5-points in the bank. In a span of 13 seconds late in the second quarter things changed. J.D. McKissic scored on a nifty run and on the next offensive play, Bobby Wagner scooped up a fumble and scampered 21-yards turning a tie game into a Seahawks cover win. Seattle scored two defensive touchdowns to help cash the over for the second straight game.
Week 3: Titans 33, Seahawks 27
ATS Result: Titans -2
Over/Under Total Result: Over 42
The Seahawks finally scored some points, but they couldn’t limit Tennessee’s big play capabilities and failed to cover the spread for a third consecutive game. Three long scoring plays in the third quarter turned a 14-9 lead into a 30-14 deficit and Seattle couldn’t recover. It’s unusual for the Seahawks to give up as many yards and points as they did and the over was an easy winner for the first time.
Week 2: Seahawks 12, 49ers 9
ATS Result: 49ers +13.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 42
The struggles on offense continue and the Seahawks didn’t even match the closing line. Favored by two touchdowns, Seattle trailed early in the fourth quarter, but Russell Wilson was magical on the game-winning drive, dodging defenders to find Paul Richardson in the corner of the end zone for the team’s first touchdown. Both teams were sloppy, but the Seahawks were less sloppy and they got the win while cashing the under again.
Week 1: Packers 17, Seahawks 9
ATS Result: Packers -2.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 49.5
We saw a handful of games last year where the Seahawks failed to score a touchdown, yet they went on to win 10 games and a division title. So don’t count them out after one game. Despite their offensive woes, the Seahawks held the Packers scoreless in the first half and snapped Aaron Rodgers’ streak of attempts without an interception when Nazair Jones snared a pick. Seattle converted just 3 of 12 third-downs and amassed a total 12 first downs. They got better after four three-and-outs and five punts on their first five possessions, but they couldn’t crack the end zone.
Preseason Record: 4-0
ATS Record: 4-0
Over/Under Total Record: 1-3
The Seahawks have gotten a taste of how visitors to the Link feel when they’ve travelled to Green Bay. Seattle’s homefield advantage is rivaled by few in the league, but the Packers are one of them. Seattle hasn’t had a lot of success in its visits losing seven straight while going 1-5-1 ATS.
