Statistician Says Seahawks Will Go to Superbowl image


The New York Times Nate Silver says Seattle will face the New England Patriots in the NFL championship game next month in New Orleans.

Silver, the blogger and statistician who rose to prominence accurately predicting sports and elections, has run the numbers and has come to a conclusion: The Seahawks, he predicts, will play in the Super Bowl.

There, they’ll take on the New England Patriots, Silver thinks. And while the Seahawks may not be the second-best team in the NFL — Silver says that’s probably the Denver Broncos — they may just be the best team in the NFC.

Here’s what he told ESPN:

“There’s always uncertainty with any metric.”I do think with a Seattle team that did come on so strongly in the second half, you worry, can other coaches readjust to them potentially? Talent-wise I’m not sure it’s a team that has as much pure talent as certainly a New England or Denver might, and that’s why the coaching could catch up to them eventually in the postseason, I think.”


Of course, the Seahawks beat the Patriots 24-23 in Week 6 of the regular season, when Russell Wilson hit wide receiver Sidney Rice for the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter Oct. 14 at CenturyLink Field.
