The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a big divisional win over the San Francisco 49ers, and they now sit alone atop the NFC. With just one blemish to their name, Seattle continues to put on a show, offensively, overwhelming their opponents.

This week, they face the Buffalo Bills, who have cooled off since starting the year hot. While they defeated the New England Patriots in Week 8, the three-point victory is nothing to brag about, considering the Patriots' struggles and how they lost the game.

So, when Seattle is favored by just 2.5 points in this matchup on FanDuel Sportsbook, it is a disrespectful shot to how good this team is.

The Seahawks offense alone may be too much for the Bills. Seattle averages a league-high 34.4 points per game. They are led by Russell Wilson, whose four touchdown passes last week brings him to 26 in seven games.

Meanwhile, Buffalo's tough defense has not shown up this season. They are bottom-half in the league in yards allowed per play, at 5.7. Buffalo also allows a 67.7 percent completion rate (10th-worst) and they commit 6.6 penalties per game (T-fourth-most).

With Wilson in perfect sync with his receivers, they should be favored by more than a field goal in this game.
