It’s also yet another massive playoff-implication game for Russell Wilson and company.
On Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, the game carried a 22% playoff leverage. This week, it’s a 24% change in playoff chances depending on how the game goes.
This game is more important for Seattle than any other team this week, and coupled with 19% leverage for the Rams it’s consecutive weeks for the Seahawks near the top of the league in high-impact games.
Seattle currently sits just under 50% odds of making the playoffs, and a win puts them in second in the NFC West. They’d be back in the driver’s seat for the rest of the season at that point, long though it is.
Things would have been truly dire had the ‘Hawks lost to the 49ers, but there’s still so much to be won or lost on Thursday Night.
