The Seattle Seahawks take on the Cincinnati Bengals for Week 6 at Paycor Stadium. Take a look at what local and national media are predicting for Sunday's game. Click here to learn how to watch, listen, and stream the action.

Seth Walder, Seahawks 29, Bengals 21

"Seahawks cornerbacks Riq Woolen and Michael Jackson. The reemergence of the Burrow-Ja'Marr Chase connection last week makes the Bengals dangerous again. But if the Seahawks' corners can slow down Chase, the Bengals' offense could scuffle with Tee Higgins questionable to play."

Mike Florio, NBC Sports: Seahawks 27, Bengals 21

"Seattle is 16-4 in the eastern time zone since 2018. Make that 17-4."

Bob Condotta, Seattle Times: Seahawks 27, Bengals 23

"Can the Seahawks really win a third straight on the road to start the season and against a talented team that appears to have righted itself after a sluggish beginning? Well, why not? This will be a good test of how for real the Seahawks really are. But here's a thought that they'll prove themselves to be who they think they are."

Adam Jude, Seattle Times: Seahawks 34, Bengals 30

"Since 2018, the Seahawks are 16-4 on East Coast trips, and they were certainly in prime-time form for their Week 4 walloping of the Giants in New York. Even with an early start this time, and even against the Bengals' high-powered offense, I like the Seahawks' chances in a shootout."

Victoria Hernandez, USA Today: Bengals 28, Seahawks 21

"The Bengals seemed to get things clicking last week with Joe Burrow's 317-yard performance and Ja'Marr Chase feeling as good as a Slurpee on a summer day. Now it's the Seahawks turn to have questions around their quarterback's health and they won't be able to muster the win on the road."

Safid Deen, USA Today: Bengals 34, Seahawks 30

"Joe Burrow may have found his touch last week in Arizona, tossing 192 of his 317 yards and three touchdowns to Ja'Marr Chase. If the calf injury is truly behind him, the Bengals should beat the pesky Seahawks despite Seattle coming in off a bye."

Tyler Dragon, USA Today: Bengals 25, Seahawks 21

"Are the Bengals back? It might be too premature to answer that question but a win over the Seahawks will give all of us a better idea. The Seahawks are coming off a bye week and will be ready. This is a huge game for the Bengals because they face the 49ers and Bills after their Week 7 bye."

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: Bengals 31, Seahawks 23

"The Seahawks are coming off a bye, so they will be rested. But Cincinnati seemed to find its way at Arizona last week. Joe Burrow is back healthy, which showed up in his play. That will continue here. The Bengals will even their record heading into the bye with another big offensive showing."

Dan Parr, Bengals 26, Seahawks 23

"There is a scenario where the Seahawks run the ball down the Bengals' throat and earn a decisive win. That is how most of Cincinnati's contests have played out so far. Joe Burrow and Co. put themselves in an early hole this season, while Seattle did the opposite. Maybe that plays to the Bengals' favor here because the hole gets considerably deeper if they lose on Sunday. They would be 2-4 heading into a bye before they have to visit the currently undefeated 49ers. I'm assuming the sense of urgency will be at least a little higher on Cincinnati's sideline and that Burrow is indeed trending in the right direction."

Larry Stone, Seattle Times: Bengals 30, Seahawks 20

"It appears Seattle is getting the Bengals at a bad time. After a sluggish start, Joe Burrow finally looked like himself last week, throwing three TD passes in a win over Arizona. All three were to Ja'Marr Chase, who caught an amazing 15 passes for 192 yards. Throw in a strong running back in Joe Mixon, and the Bengals offense will be too much for the Seahawks to contain."

Matt Calkins, Seattle Times: Bengals 28, Seahawks 21

"This is probably the toughest test Seattle has faced all year and will struggle against Cincinnati's Joe Burrow-led offense. Geno Smith and co. will put up a fight, but in the end, Seattle will fall to 3-2."
