The Seahawks defense is ranked last in the league in total yards allowed per game (460.9) and they typically give up 3.5 points per game more than the Bills do, but Russell Wilson is on an offensive tear and they should be able to cover this spread and then some.

The Seahawks have only lost one game this season, a Week 7 overtime disaster that saw QB Russell Wilson throwing three of his 6 total interceptions this season, something he and head coach Peter Carroll fixed, as evidenced in Wilson’s 4 touchdowns, zero picks Week 8 victory over their NFC West rivals, the 49ers.
By beating the New England Patriots in Week 8, the 6-1 Buffalo Bills have on all levels taken over the AFC East, and now a big win in Week 9 against these proven Seahawks will show that young QB Josh Allen and his offense can trade touchdowns with the best of them and still win.
The two cross-conference rivals have met each other 13 times in the past, with the Buffalo Bills winning 5 of those matchups and the Seattle Seahawks winning the other 8 of those games.
The Seattle Seahawks defense is ranked 32nd, or last, in the National Football League in terms of how opponents produce, which is not totally unbelievable since the team’s D was ranked 26th in the league last season.
This year, the Seahawks allow each team they play to gain, on average, 461 yards, which breaks down to 359 through the air and 102 on the ground.
So with that weak pass defense, they are facing a top-ten passing attack, the Bills able to throw for 263 yards per game on average on Josh Allen’s arm, and an offense that scores almost 25 points per matchup so far this season.
Just looking at what these two teams put on the scoreboard week after week makes the idea of the Bills (24.9 points per game) outscoring the Seahawks (34.3 points per game) seem a bit farfetched.
Right now Bills QB Josh Allen is completing a career-high 67.1 percent of his passes and in 8 games has come within four passing touchdowns of what he threw all of last season (2020: 16 TDs in 8 games, 2019: 20 TDs in 16 games).
But when it comes down to it, the Seahawks score almost ten points per game more than the Bills (34.3, ranked third-most in the NFL), so if this gets to be a shootout, it will most likely go Russell Wilson’s way.
Former 2nd round pick DK Metcalf has proven to be a first-round quality receiver for the Seattle Seahawks, putting up some excellent numbers so far in 2020 as his team keeps right on winning.
Metcalf has caught 36 balls off 59 targets for 680 yards, and right now he leads the league in receiving touchdowns with 7, ranked 4th overall in the league at his position.
With soft hands and a tall, tough body, Metcalf can win the battle for the ball and then get extra yards after the catch given he is so difficult to bring down – he has tight end size with a deep threat receiver’s speed, a deadly, key combo for sure.
In his first season away from the Vikings and on the Buffalo Bills roster, star wide receiver Stefon Diggs has caught 54 passes off 79 targets for 695 yards and 3 touchdowns, currently the second most productive at his position in the league.
Diggs averages 12.9 yards per catch, his longest a 49-yarder, so he pulls safeties and cornerbacks with him on just about every route he runs.
And the more that happens, the more the rest of the field opens up for receiving targets like John Brown and Cole Beasley and tight end Tyler Kroft, all key factors to any possible win over these offensively tough Seahawks.
