Pete Carroll’s Seattle Seahawks looking to make it two wins in two

Dange’Russ’ Wilson put in a stellar display as the Seahawks outplayed the Falcons last time out in the league. The veteran quarterback completed 31 of his 35 attempted passes.

He threw for 300+ yards and completed four passing TDs to show why he is one of the best shot-callers in the NFL at present. Coach Pete Carroll will count on his star quarterback to deliver when going up against Bill Belichick’s Patriots on Sunday.

Wilson will be backed by a star wide receiving corps. They include the WR’s Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, and TE’s Greg Olsen, Will Dissly, and Jacob Hollister. They will cause the Patriots defense a lot of trouble when the teams face off at the CenturyLink Field over the weekend.

New signing Jamal Adams had a decent debut against the Falcons last week. He will look to build on that with another strong display against the Patriots.

New England Patriots start as underdogs against Russell Wilson and Co.

Coach Bill Belichick’s new-look Patriots team will hope that quarterback Cam Newton delivers in his first real test of the 2020 NFL season. OC Josh McDaniels will look to bring out the best of Newton’s dual-threat abilities and challenge the strong Seahawks defense in this Week Two clash. However, that will not be an easy task by any means.

The Pats will also be sweating on the fitness of wide receivers, N’Keal Harry and Julian Edelman, who are both listed as ‘questionable’ in the latest injury report. Coach Belichick will be praying that they both recover in time for this crunch encounter.

Meanwhile, star cornerback Stephen Gilmore will be the key player in defense for the visitors as they aim to thwart Russell Wilson and Co.

Pete Carroll has worked hard with this Seattle Seahawks team over the last few years. Quarterback Russell Wilson is the glue that binds this whole Seahawks team together.

Despite a tough opponent in the form of the Cam Newton-led New England, we feel the Seahawks will still have the last laugh in this Week Two duel. Wilson looks deadly, the wide receivers are firing on all cylinders and the defense is solid.
