The Seattle Seahawks enter their game against the Oakland Raiders as the slight dog on Halloween despite securing only one road win in 2010. The Oakland Raiders Black Hole on Halloween will be especially menacing for a Seattle Seahawks team that has struggled in all but one of their road games this NFL season.
Seattle Seahawks Defense vs Oakland Raiders Offense
The Seattle Seahawks run defense has been stout this season. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the only defense stopping the run better than the Seattle Seahawks and they will be tested with Darren McFadden coming out of the Oakland Raiders backfield. The Seattle Seahawks pass defense is one of the worst in the NFL and this could be where they lose this game.
The Oakland Raiders offense can be potent even with their number one wide receiver Chaz Schillens still out of commission. The Oakland Raiders offense has many weapons to choose from and the biggest gun is Darren McFadden rumbling out of the back field and steam rolling opposing defenders.
Next to McFadden, Zach Miller is another big gun that is a favorite target. Miller can barrel over defenders after the catch and is a tough man to tackle with the ball in his hands and the end zone in sight. The Oakland Raiders offense has the edge over the Seattle Seahawks defense.
Oakland Raiders Defense vs Seattle Seahawks Offense
The Oakland Raiders defense has struggled against some of the best runners in the NFL. They have already faced Chris Johnson and Arian Foster this season and have been exposed by both of them. The Oakland Raiders are better defensing the pass with the tough to beat Nnamdi Asomugha on one side and Stanford Routt
coming into his on the opposite side of the field.
The Seattle Seahawks offense has been a work in progress and the progression has not been a consistent one. Matt Hasselbeck is serviceable but not a game changer at the quarterback position. The addition of Marshawn Lynch at the running back position may not be able to fix the Seattle Seahawks run game but it can’t hurt. With little to look for in the passing game and the running game, it is hard to believe in the 4-2 Seattle Seahawks. The Oakland Raiders defense has a slight edge over the Seattle Seahawks offense.
