The Seattle Seahawks right now are on a roll. That continued in Week 15 when they rolled to a 50-17 win over the Buffalo Bills in Toronto. It was the second straight game in which Seattle racked up at least 50 points—only the third time that has happened in NFL history.
Buffalo was officially knocked out of playoff consideration with this loss, so now the only thing left on the schedule of note is to be a spoiler to the New York Jets in the season finale.
Buffalo fans welcomed back ex-Bills RB Marshawn Lynch in his first game against the team that drafted him with the No. 12 overall pick in the first-round of the 2007 NFL draft. Lynch came into Week 15 as the No. 2 running back in the NFL with 1,266 yards, trailing only Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings.
Coming into the game, the Bills offense had their work cut out for them. Seattle boasted the No. 3 overall defense in the NFL. The Seahawks were ranked No. 4 against the pass and No. 11 against the run. Seattle only gives up 15.5 points per game on average.
The offenses between the teams were almost identical. Buffalo came in averaging 341.4 yards per game, while Seattle was at 341.2. It is scary how close their averages are.
But when the teams met, it was all Seattle as they have the look of a team that belongs in the playoffs. The Bills obviously do not, as they have now missed out on postseason play for 13-straight years.
