The Seahawks and Buccaneers will make history in this weekend’s game in Munich, Germany.
MUNICH, Germany — When the National Football League (NFL) announced the fixtures earlier this year, it made sense to assume that Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be strong contenders against the Seattle Seahawks in the opening game. of the tournament in Germany.
The Seahawks played better than the Buccaneers on both sides of the ball. Geno Smith is playing at a level above even the best quarterback of all time. Kenneth Walker III is asserting his place among the best full-backs in the league. Pete Carroll has been invigorated by the change in midfield and appears to be enjoying life coaching the top team in the NFC West division.
However, the game has not completely changed in public opinion. Tampa Bay is still 2.5 points more popular than Seattle, according to Vegas punters.
Based on the past nine weeks of competition, there’s no reason to believe the Buccaneers are the better team.

NFL History in Germany
The NFL has spent many seasons playing in London, but this year’s game in Munich, Germany is the first time the tournament is held in this country.
The decision to include the Seahawks in the game was partly due to the fact that the franchise has a large following of German fans who have grown fond of the team.

Wallace Watts, fan-acknowledged Captain of the Seahawks is leading a group of about 200 Seahawks fans who made the long journey to Munich to watch the team go head-to-head with the Buccaneers.
This weekend’s game will be an international display of the power of the “number 12”, long considered one of the league’s most passionate fanbases.
Revenge Tom Brady
The Seahawks have faced Tom Brady just one more time since the 2015 Super Bowl.
Seattle won the 31-24 road match against Brady in Foxborough, Mass. on November 13, 2016, more than a year after a painful defeat at the Super Bowl. It was just one of two losses for the Patriots that season. (Note: New England eventually won the Super Bowl that season).
Of course, Seattle will never be able to undo its controversial decision at the line, but any win over Brady would be nice as a small reward.
The Hawk 24, The Predator 21.
It’s time to believe in the Seahawks as a legitimate team.
