Seahawks vs. Patriots Prediction:
In what may be the matchup of the week, the Patriots will be looking to flex their muscle while Seattle will be looking to send a message around the NFL.
Seattle's defense is one of the best in the league, and 10th best overall against the pass, but Brady has been on an absolute roll since his first start back from suspension.
New England will have its hands full against the Seattle secondary, but Belichick and Brady will have the game plan to beat the Seahawks.
