#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?
Tyler Lockett on a post pattern from 50 yards.
#4 Most receiving yards in first quarter?
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.
