After a refreshing win at home, the Cleveland Browns go on the road for probably their toughest test of the season against the defending NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle has had their issues so far this year, as they started the season 4-5 through their first nine games. However, they have jumped right back into the playoff picture thanks to their current four game winning streak.
The Seahawks are now 8-5 and are positioning themselves for a wild card spot. As they try to secure a spot, the Seahawks’ hopes are improving with each win, with the ultimate goal of reaching the 2015 Super Bowl becoming a legitimate possibility.
Seattle is back in a position of success after having their aforementioned slow start to the start of the season while also being bit by the injury bug. Injuries to former Pro Bowl TE Jimmy Graham and running backs Marshawn Lynch and Thomas Rawls have impacted the offense severely.
Meanwhile, the Browns just won their third win of the season against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14. With these last few games being garbage games (the Browns have been officially eliminated from playoff contention for multiple weeks now), the Browns are only really playing for pride and to show what everyone on the team can do.
Quarterback Johnny Manziel is a key player with plenty to prove in the coming weeks. He had a good game against the 49ers last week but he must continue to progress.
Seattle however is not nearly as inept as the 49ers. They are better at nearly every position on the field than their counterparts in San Francisco. If Manziel and company can play well against this tough Seattle team on the road and pull out a win against this team, that be something that you would have to be flat-out ignorant to ignore.
