Stelton: Seahawks have advantage over Vikings in Week 14

Dec 7, 2018, 3:27 PM

The Seahawks (7-5) have a chance to improve their playoff odds to over 95 percent in Week 14 with a win over the Minnesota Vikings (6-5-1), a fellow Wild Card contender.

What Vikings DE Danielle Hunter sees from Seahawks’ offense

But is that easier said than done? The Vikings seventh-ranked rushing defense could pose a challenge for the Seahawks’ run-first offense and Vikings receiver Adam Thielen is second in the league in receiving yards (1,166), trailing only Julio Jones.

But the Seahawks will have a few things working in their favor. In the attached video, 710 ESPN Seattle’s Bob Stelton explains Seattle’s advantages in the Monday night contest.

Don’t forget to catch Sunday’s 10 a.m. Seahawks-Vikings game live on 710 ESPN Seattle, KIRO Radio 97.3 FM, or the Seahawks mobile app (if you’re streaming on mobile and inside of a 75-mile radius of CenturyLink Field).
