The Seattle Seahawks’ 10-game winning streak against
the San Francisco 49ers came to a disappointing end Will Dissly Color Rush Jersey , as the now 4-10 Niners beat their rivals 26-23 in overtime to deny the Seahawks a playoff berth for at least one week. Yes, there was bad officiating, but also sloppy play, sloppy weather, and other factors that contributed to Seattle’s demise.But when you look at what has happened around the league this week... maybe it was inevitable?Week 15 started off with the Kansas City Chiefs losing to the Los Angeles Chargers on the game’s final offensive play, blowing a 28-14 lead and thus the AFC West. As it turns out, a Chiefs win would’ve clinched the #1 seed in addition to the division (more on that later). It was the Chargers’ first win against the Chiefs since Week 17 of the 2013 season, when a first-team Chargers side had to beat a second-string, Chase Daniel-led Kansas City squad in overtime just to make the playoffs. A great time for the Chargers to snap a nine-game losing streak vs. KC, and they could end up as the #1 seed in the AFC if all breaks right for them.Saturday night, the Cleveland Browns’ feint playoff hopes were kept alive courtesy of a 17-16 win over the Denver Broncos, whose head coach Vance Joseph ought to be fired for this mindlessness. It was Cleveland’s first win over the Broncos since 1990. Two iterations of the Browns have had 11 cracks at Denver over a near-three decade span, but couldn’t beat them. Denver’s fading playoff hopes, which took a hit when they had their own loss to the 49ers last week, are done now. At the same time as the Seahawks-49ers Michael Dickson Color Rush Jersey , the Pittsburgh Steelers held off the New England Patriots for a pivotal 17-10 win, when a loss would’ve momentarily knocked them out of the playoffs. It snapped a five-game losing skid against the Patriots for Mike Tomlin’s bunch, marking his first win over New England since 2011. It’s also the first time since 2002 that the Patriots have lost consecutive December games. New England might very well fail to get a first-round bye, and as alluded to earlier, a Steelers win was what the Chiefs needed to clinch the #1 seed in the AFC... except they didn’t beat the Chargers, so their playoff seeding is still up in the air.Sometimes “shit happens,” and I think that’s an apt description for Week 15. A lot of long droughts all just ended within a 72-hour span, and you just have to move on and look at the next opponent. In the Russell Wilson era, the Seattle Seahawks have started Week 1 on the road five times out of seven seasons. The 2013 team was the only one to win its road opener, and I believe they won the Super Bowl that year. I’ll need someone in the comments section to do the heavy lifting for me and provide me visual evidence that this actually happened.Anyway, we won’t know the Seahawks’ 2019 regular season schedule until April, but it’s a near certainty that they’re actually going to have a Week 1 home game for a pleasant change. Looking at their respective MLS and MLB schedules, the Seattle Sounders do not play on September 8th, while the Seattle Mariners are on the road that same day. With no conflicts in sight, that paves the way for the Seahawks to start at CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks have not lost a home opener since 2008 Alex McGough Color Rush Jersey , when the San Francisco 49ers beat them 33-30 in overtime. In fact, they are 14-0 at home in September under Carroll, the only undefeated team over the last eight years. Compare that with their September road record, which is just 3-13 and the second-worst mark in the NFL. Two of those wins include rallying from 20-3 down to beat the eventual 2-14 Houston Texans in overtime, and this season’s 20-17 win over the 3-13 Arizona Cardinals. As for other scheduling conflicts, looking at Weeks 2, 4, and 5, the Seahawks are probably going to have road games on those dates. The Sounders are home on Sunday, September 15th and Sunday, October 6th, while the Mariners play their regular season finale on Sunday, September 29th. Of course, the Seahawks could always play a Monday night or Thursday night home game in one of those aforementioned weeks.Here’s a reminder of what the 2019 opponents are.Home GamesArizona CardinalsLos Angeles RamsSan Francisco 49ersCincinnati BengalsBaltimore RavensMinnesota VikingsNew Orleans SaintsTampa Bay BuccaneersAway GamesArizona CardinalsLos Angeles RamsSan Francisco 49ersPittsburgh SteelersCleveland BrownsPhiladelphia EaglesCarolina PanthersAtlanta Falcons
