Aros' Fearless Prediction Thread (vs Vikings)

The Original Seattle Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute for Seahawks Talk, News, Rumors, Trades, and Analytics. LANGUAGE: PG-13
  • Two things loom this weekend that could potentially be huge factors. Dalvin Cook and the rain. And speaking of Cook, we have all been enjoying watching Russ cook so far this season, but I for one don't think cooks like to cook in the rain. Call me crazy and even go look up stats to try to prove me wrong, but Russell Wilson is just plain not as effective in the rain, especially when talking about a prolific passing offense. Even if the rain doesn't prove to be a factor Sunday, I have this game as our first potential true trap game. Vikings come in with a sub-par record and Kirk Cousins, while hardly lighting it up in the stat sheets this year, has beaten us in Century Link before, so it wouldn't be a foreign feeling for him.

    I would normally predict a loss in this one but I would be crazy to bet against Russell right now. Rain or not.

  • I expect the Vikes to give the Hawks a good battle. And Cook is a hell of a player. Fortunately, the Hawks have been solid against the run. Force them to beat you in the air, I don't see Cousins winning a prime time game, let alone in Seattle.

    Hawks put up another 30 burger and hold the Vikes down in the 4th quarter when it matters.
    Russ with 3 TD passes (one to DK another to Lockett) Carson with a rushing TD. Hawks D forces the opponent to settle for 4 field goals. Bend don't break works yet again......

    Hawks 37-26

  • I’ll go with:
    Hawks 24
    Vikes 20

    That score has resulted in a win every week so far.

    My record same as the Hawks.

  • Hawks never been 5-0. Vikings are much better then their record says. I believe this is the type of team that causes Seahawks fits this year. Well balanced and will actually slow RW down like the lesser Dolphins did last week. If Russ has an average performance we lose. That's just what we have with this team this year. Still think Hawks find a way to win.

    24-20 Hawks

  • I expect Cousins to put up major yards as he dinks/dunks down the field all day long, but cannot get into the enzone enough to win it.

    I predict a trip to the ER with a 30-26 hawks victory.

  • I think Dalvin Cook goes off but is only matched by Carson is a slugfest of a game. Lockett gets a late TD and a late 4th down run by Carson to seal it where he slides 5 yards short of the endzone to kneel it out.

    Seahawks 24 - Vikings 21.

  • Well, I'm 0-4...picked against the Hawks each time. So, out of sheer superstition, here's my pick:

    Vikings - 37
    Hawks - 31

  • I don't think it will be that close. The Vikes are meh, and that was before Russ was having an MVP year. Russ will get it going Sunday with 4 td's, even in the rain, Carson gets one rushing, and Cousins gets picked off twice. This is the Hawks' year. Hawks 38-24.

  • Simply, we own the Vikings. We have won our last 6 against them, including the playoffs.

    They are always a "weird" team...they look so good on paper, but they don't perform to expectations. Always good, but never able to take that next step.

    I am concerned about Thielen and Jefferson against this defense, without Jamal Adams again. We need to dig up a pass rush somewhere.

  • Pete Carroll is 6-0 vs the Vikings since he became the Seahawks coach. Min #5 Rush Offense vs Sea #3 Rush Defense. Hawks win in a close lower scoring game. 24-23

    I expect the Vikings to slow it way down with their running game, taking the lead in the 4th quarter, before the Seahawks answer with a game winning TD.

  • The two games I saw the Vikings play this year was pretty bad. I would have probably went for the strong point win given how they look, and the inability of Cousins to play well in major national broadcasts.

    But, there is the rain to consider. How much of an effect it will have is hard to say, but you have to think passing will be a challenge. Fortunately, we do have a really good RB in Carson. We also have a very strong defense against the run this year to date. So I believe we will win, but the score is going to be somewhat lower.

  • Minnesotta isn’t going anywhere this year. Cousins isn’t going to out duel our Russ on the big stage. Too bad there won’t be any 12s. But our home field advantage was mostly legend lately instead of real. I hope Russ can play in the rain better than usual. He should he’s better Ghana his usual now anyway. Man I wish we had our fans back. Hawks 31 Vikes 23.

  • Foreseeing some bad coaching calls on both squads. Sloppy Seahawk football. Vikings have the lead in the 4th and Russ can't quite bail out the coaches again this time. Vikes pull off the upset.


    No prediction on score.

  • I think we ball control a bit this game and the defense gets two INTs but gives up a garbage time TD.

  • 28-24 Vikes

    Our lack of pass rush makes Kirk Cousins look like an all-pro QB.

    Wilson looks ordinary in the rain again.

    Someone will slip all over the field on the Seahawks roster and they will not change their cleats until halftime.
