The Seahawks will play host to Rex Ryan’s squad in primetime as the Bills will make the long trip West to CenturyLink Field. Coming off of back-to-back losses, the Bills desperately need a win, but it will be tough to come by.
Buffalo lacks depth at wide receiver, The Bills have one of the worst wide receiving groups in the NFL. It wouldn’t be nearly as bad if Sammy Watkins were healthy, but that’s simply not the case. Instead, they have Justin Hunter, Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin and, wait for it, Percy Harvin at wideout. Not exactly the most reliable group to be throwing to. Their lack of talent and depth will become especially evident against the Seahawks on Monday night.
Moreover, Seattle is great against the run. The Bills are built upon their ability to run the ball. It was the case last season, and it remains true this season. They lead the league with 1,233 rushing yards in 2016 after pacing the NFL a year ago, too. Unfortunately, they’re in danger of not having their leading rusher against Seattle’s stout run defense on Monday night. LeSean McCoy has been battling a hamstring injury for the past few weeks, resulting in just 11 rushing yards since Week 7. He’s not certain to play Monday, which would be a huge blow for the Bills.
Finally, Seattle is unbeatable at home. Put simply, the Seahawks are nearly unbeatable at home, particularly under Russell Wilson. In games that he’s started, the Seahawks are 30-5 at CenturyLink Field. He’s completed 64 percent of his passes in those games with 56 touchdowns and just 16 interceptions. His passer rating is 102.8 at home as he’s noticeably better in Seattle than he is on the road.
