The two franchises will go head-to-head on Sunday in Week 8 and both are in need of a win to keep pace in the NFC West and the AFC North. Deshaun Watson is still out with a shoulder injury, so P.J. Walker will be back under center after leading Cleveland to wins over the 49ers and Colts the last two weeks. Can Seattle finally bring Walker back to earth and take advantage of a Cleveland defense that finally looked human last week?

Why the Seahawks can cover

Seattle was one of the NFL's biggest surprises last year, with Geno Smith stepping in almost seamlessly for Russell Wilson and leading the team to the postseason while winning NFL Comeback Player of the Year. Now Smith is only further establishing that he's a capable starting quarterback in the NFL, completing 68.6% of his passes for 1,391 yards and seven touchdowns with four interceptions over his first six games.

Running back Kenneth Walker III has helped provide balance for the Seattle offense, rushing for 450 yards and six scores over the first six weeks. With the 49ers losing back-to-back games, the Seahawks are back in the thick of the NFC West title race and they'll lean on one of the biggest home-field advantages in the NFL to rattle a backup quarterback on Sunday. See which team to pick here.
