Meanwhile the Seahawks have one of the NFL's best defenses, and their defensive line up is the main reason to thank for their positive record to date. Seattle have only allowed opposition teams to score more than 19 points once this season, and that was all the way back in Week 1, and coincidentally was also against the Arizona Cardinals.
Both teams will be confidence following Week 5 wins, with the Patriots beating a strong Broncos side 31-21, and the Seahawks coming through against the Carolina Panthers. For the Patriots, running back Stevan Ridley gave a stand out performance, registering 151 yards and one touchdown.

The Seattle defense applied huge pressure on Cam Newton all game long, forcing him into one of his worst ever performances in recent memory.
