Patriots vs. Seahawks: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

One of the league's top offenses crashes into one of the league's top defenses on Sunday.

As the New England Patriots head to CenturyLink Field to face the Seattle Seahawks, one of the few comparisons that can be drawn about the two teams is their record at 3-2. Other than that, it is like night and day.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady used to rely on his arm to fuel most victories but now he gets help from the Patriots rushing game that ranks third in the NFL at 165.4 yards per game. They lead the league with ten touchdowns on the ground - two more than Brady has thrown.

The Seahawks meanwhile have struggled to move the chains on a consistent basis, but their defense, one of the staunchest in the league, has kept the team in games just enough to win it. The Seahawks defense only allows 67 yards on the ground a game and just 192 in the air. With the Patriots juggernaut rolling in, something has to give.

The Patriots secondary has allowed quite a few yards this year, but it will be a question of whether rookie quarterback Russell Wilson can capitalize on it. The Patriots allow 290 passing yards a game, but Wilson has thrown for an average of 163 yards a game - good for last in the NFL among starters.

The Seahawks are undefeated at home and have allowed only 19 points between their two meetings so far. The two teams have only met twice in the past decade, with the Patriots winning both meetings, 24-21 in 2008 and 30-20 in 2004.
