If there’s one thing the 4-1 Seahawks and the 3-2 Titans both do very well, it’s holding on to the ball. Ranking in the top three in turnover differential, the game may simply come down to who gives up the ball, not necessarily first, but who gives it up at all.

Washington is a lot like the San Francisco team that was blown out by Seattle two weeks ago, but the Hawks will have to stop the running game and beat Jim Haslett’s exotic blitzes.
Jeff Fisher has the Rams on the cusp of their first winning season since 2003. That said, he realizes how tough it will be to beat a Seattle team that has scored 150 points the past three weeks and possesses the No. 1 scoring defense in the league. A fake field goal is not likely to be enough this time.
A division title and playoff spot are on the line between NFC West rivals Seattle and San Francisco, who are near twins with their hard-hitting defenses, great running games and quarterbacks playing beyond their years.
While Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch has ascended to the No. 2 rusher in the league in Seattle, C.J. Spiller has hardly been used in Buffalo.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Fitzgerald is stuck on the worst offense in the NFL and on a team that has lost eight straight games. While the Seattle Seahawks are a little shorthanded in the secondary, they are 5-0 at home and Russell Wilson has learned a lot since that first loss in Arizona.
