Seattle's schedule looks pretty brutal as well. They still have Miami, Bears, Cards, Bills, 49ers and Rams. I could see them dropping 3 games easily, but their tiebreaker over us is tough.
Tampa is basically out of it with their schedule (and our tiebreaker). They still have Carolina, Falcons (twice), Broncos, Eagles and Saints.
We could be playing for a wild card spot against the Saints at Christmas.
Seattle's schedule is easy, the dolphins,bills, cardinals, and rams all blow, and they almost beat san fran in san fran, no question they can beat them at home.
