NFC West Prediction: Seattle Seahawks – Division Champs

I know, bold right?

I have the defending NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks taking the division title once again in 2015 despite the loss of some key personnel and coaches.

In my opinion, quarterback Russell Wilson is highly underrated and will continue his development in 2015. Additions like Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham and rookie Tyler Lockett will finally provide Wilson with the down field targets that many feel he lacked in 2014.

Of course, there is still one of the best running backs in the game in Marshawn Lynch lining up behind him who will obviously look to have another tremendous year as the teams feature tailback.

While the defense may take a small step back, I feel that this team is still the best in their division and CenturyLink Field is still the toughest place to play.
