#1 Russell Wilson passing yards? Total touchdowns?

< 200, 200-244, 245-299, 300+

0-1, 2, 3+

Wilson threw the rock 35 times against Atlanta for 322 yards. Those reports about Seattle passing more early in the game are true through one week. Throwing for 300+ won't be easy against the New England secondary, but he'll get enough tosses to get close. 

How about three scores... two in the air, one on the ground. 

#2 Cam Newton passing yards? Total touchdowns?

< 200, 200-249, 250-289, 290+

0-1, 2, 3+

This is the hardest one for me. I could literally see it all four ways. If the Patriots play from ahead, he might only throw it 20 times. If they're playing from behind, that number could double. I think Seattle jumps out early, so let's go at least 25 attempts and say around 11 yards a pop. I'll go 250-289 yards. 

Only one touchdown. 

#3 First touchdown of the game?

Sony Michel, Chris Carson, James White, Tyler Lockett, Julian Edelman, D.K. Metcalf, Any other Patriots player, Any other Seahawks player

Tyler Lockett on a post pattern from 50 yards. 

#4 Most receiving yards in first quarter?

Julian Edelman, Tyler Lockett, N'Keal Harry, D.K. Metcalf, Damiere Bird, Greg Olsen, Any other Patriots player, Any other Seahawks player

Lockett gets more targets, but Metcalf's size is hard to ignore in this matchup. Lockett is a savant at getting open, but Belichick is wizard-like with the secondary schematics. Look for Seattle to use Metcalf's 6-4, 230-pound frame to their advantage. 

#5 Longest play?

< 35 yards, 35-42, 43-49, 50-57, 58-70, 71+ 

See answer #3.

#6 Total passing touchdowns in second half?

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5+

Let's go with two. One for Russ, one for Cam.

#7 Winner? Margin of victory? 

New England Patriots or Seattle Seahawks?

1-2 points, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18, 19-20, 21+

Seattle by 7 points. They're a better overall team and they don't have to travel across the country. It's the first roadie for New England without Brady in a long time. Strange game for the Pats. Wilson's versatility should be too much to handle. I'll go Seattle 24-17.
