The Seattle Seahawks play the Houston Texans in Week 14 of the 2021 regular season. Kickoff is at 10:00 A.M. PT on Sunday, December 12, 2021. FOX will carry the game on live TV, with 710 ESPN Seattle and KIRO Radio 97.3 covering the game on radio.
Here's what national and local media members are predicting:
12th Man Rising Jake Lupino has the Hawks winning 31-10 against the Texans. "With Russell Wilson getting another week of repetition and healing for his finger, I have him finishing the game with two touchdown passes to Gerald Everett and D.K. Metcalf along with two rushing touchdowns from Rashaad Penny and Adrian Peterson en route to a Seahawks blowout win over the Texans, 31-10"
CBS Pete Prisco is going with the Seahawks winning this Sunday 30-10. "Seattle kept its small playoff hopes alive last week in beating the 49ers. They now get to face a Texans team that is playing bad football. Russell Wilson and the Seattle pass offense should be able to finally show some big-play ability in this one. The Texans offense, even against a below-average Seattle defense, will struggle. Seahawks take it."
Sporting News Bill Bender likes the Seahawks by a score of 27-20. "Russell Wilson led the desperate Seahawks to a victory against the 49ers, and they can build on that on the road at Houston. The Texans rank 32nd in the league in run defense, so that should lead to some play-action opportunities for Wilson, who finally looks healthy again."
Seattle Times Adam Jude expects a 34-13 win for the Seahawks. "After their breakthrough vs. the 49ers, the Seahawks offense ought to take another major step forward in Houston. Russell Wilson and his finger finally looked healthy last week, and this feels like the perfect opportunity for DK Metcalf to post his first 100-yard receiving game since Week 3."
ESPN's Brady Henderson is going with the Seahawks winning 26-14. "The Seahawks will get at least three sacks of whomever Houston starts at quarterback. They're facing the right team on Sunday, with Houston ranking 30th in ESPN's pass block win rate while allowing the sixth-most sacks per dropback of any team."
Athlon Sports Scott Whittum expects the Hawks to pull out a win in Texas 27-13."Last week's win was much needed and took some pressure off of the Seahawks, especially since it came at home. Sunday gives them an opportunity to make it two in a row as the Texans are a bigger mess right now. Seattle won't have to worry about playing in a hostile NRG Stadium either as the fans have already tuned this time out, if not given up on it altogether. Wilson should have another solid outing as he gets further down the road from his finger surgery. Another strong effort from the running game would be good to see as well. In the end, a balanced offense combined with an attacking defense that generates a couple of takeaways will be more than enough to allow the Seahawks to leave the Lone Star State with their first winning streak of the season."
