We absolutely will not beat the Patriots without better offensive production. Their defense, and their offense both play into Seattle's weaknesses. They can stop the run but they can't defend the pass very well, and their offense uses a ton of no huddle, plus they are known for dinking and dunking the ball up the field --- both things that our defense has struggled against. Hopefully our noise level can slow down the no-huddle but it still will be a challenge.
That said because of these factors I sense that the Patriots are going to score over 20 points. Wilson did a great job of managing the game last week, however this week he will need to do more than simply manage. This is the best offense in the NFL, and chances are our defense won't be able to stop them all game long. In this game we might be counting on Wilson heavily.
