Seattle Seahawks @ New England Patriots (1.30am Monday)
The two sides that many expect to be at the Super Bowl next year meet in the early hours of Monday, as the Seattle Seahawks take on a rested New England Patriots side.
The Seahawks beat the Buffalo Bills 31-25 in an exciting match last weekend, but the Seahawks have quarterback Russell WIlson and Jimmy Graham to thank for two scores, with the rest of the offence looking weaker. Defensively Seattle should improve, once a couple of first choice starters return to the defensive line.
The New England Patriots had a bye last week and come into this huge game fresh and in fine form, having picked up four successive victories. The velvet hand of quarterback Tom Brady is still doing its magic and their defensive line that is the second best in the NFL.
This could be a close game and our NFL prediction is for the Patriots to win, but with the Seahawks worthy of a points spread bet at +6.
