The Seattle Seahawks will face off against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday with the Seahawks looking to catch the San Francisco 49ers at the top of the NFC West standings. The Dolphins themselves are level with the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East and will be hoping a win today would give them second place in the AFC East. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link provided below.
The 6-4 Seahawks are just behind the 7-2-1 49ers in the NFC West and will know how important it is to get a win today against the struggling Dolphins. With a fierce run in expected as we draw closer towards the end of the regular season, the Seahawks must win games such as today's if they are to fight for the divisional title against the high flying 49ers.
Miami come into this game with a 4-6 record, which places them third in an AFC East headed by the 8-3 New England Patriots. The Dolphins have struggled to gain consistency this season, and there are numerous concerns for them coming into this game.
One such concern is the form of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He has done well at times this season but has hit a big lull recently, throwing five interceptions against just one touchdown in his past two games.
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will have seen those stats before the game and will have been licking his lips. He will want to apply as much pressure as possible to the shaken up rookie QB and will not want to let him settle in this match up.
Tannehill has 179 completions from 308 attempts for 2120 yards and six touchdowns this season
Another bad game for Tannehill and Miami will surely be the nail in the coffin for the Dolphins' season, and their playoff hopes will be left in tatters. A win, however, could have the potential to revive them for am unlikely late season push for the postseason.
Meanwhile, Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch will be big players who will have to perform well today if the Seahawks are to keep up pace at the top of the NFC West. Lynch surpassed 1000 rush yards for the season recently, and is having a solid season. He has 212 carries for 1005 yards coming into this game, which is 4.7 yards on average per carry. He has claimed five touchdowns until now so far this season.
