The Seahawks have taken a beating this season but they are rare road favorites in their Week 14 matchup with the Texans.
Houston gained ground on the Lions for the first overall pick in next year’s NFL Draft in Week 13. But are two wins already too many to get that top spot?
It has been a season of firsts for Russell Wilson, who prior to this season had never missed a start, nor finished with anything but a winning record in his nine years as an NFL quarterback.
But in his tenth, Wilson has missed three games and lost twice as many (6) as he has won. His Seahawks are in last place in the stout NFC West Division.
Wilson did get his first win since returning from a finger injury that forced him out for three games last week against the 49ers, 30–23.
Wilson finished 30 for 37 for 231 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner to Tyler Lockett in the third quarter.
He also threw an interception, fumbled (which Seattle recovered), and took four sacks for a whopping -50 yards.
He got rare help from the ground game, however. Travis Homer ripped off a 73-yard touchdown run and Adrian Peterson scored a shortie in his first game as a Seahawk.
Seattle’s defense buckled down in the second half, keeping San Francisco off the scoreboard to preserve a win. It may have to be the defense that dominates this game if Seattle is to get a win and keep any hope of avoiding a losing season alive.
Houston was shutout in its 31–0 Week 13 loss to Indianapolis, the second goose egg the Texans have taken on the year.
They have also finished with totals of nine, three, and five and have the worst rated offense in the NFL.
Davis Mills and Tyrod Taylor shared duties under center. Neither finished with as much as 50 yards passing.
Taylor threw a pick and both took two sacks. Rex Burkhead led the backfield with 30 yards on eight touches. Houston’s offense is miserable.

4* Free Week 14 NFL Betting Prediction:
Backing the Texans has not been a winning formula this season and though that could change down the stretch, don’t count on it.
Seattle’s offense has been nothing to write home about. The running game has been, for the most part, nonexistent. DK Metcalf has been nowhere to be seen. Wilson’s accuracy has not been the same since the finger injury.
But Seattle has struggled in the NFC West and versus the rather high expectations it has earned in the Wilson era. Houston has been as bad as any team in the NFL.
These teams are not on equal footing, which of course is reflected in the 7.5-point spread favoring the road team.
That number isn’t big enough, however. Seattle wins up front with just enough offense and a dominant defensive effort, building on the second half of last week’s win.
