They keep beating us in THEIR HOUSE head-to-head. When was the last time we lost to Seattle at home?
Ok. You need a better record than them to get the division win and homefield advantage. You have to figure 8 - 0 at home for them or at least 7 - 1. AZ beat them this year 1 game but it was shocking and unusual. They lost 1 game up there in 2 years ever. That's an amazing advantage IMO.
If you start out 8 - 0 from homefield advantage all you need to do is split the rest of your games 4 - 4 to get to 12 - 4. Or go 5 - 3 to get to 13 - 3. They are likely to have monstrous records for years to come. At least half of your away games got to be weak teams. So figure 4 - 4 at worst. Results in 12 - 4 at worst. We got to be 14 - 2 or 15 - 1 to beat them. That's really asking a lot. A lot!.....
