There are a lot of games to be excited about this week -- more than most weeks. Monday night's matchup between Minnesota and Seattle may be the Game of the Week. It may not have the sexy factor that San Francisco vs. Baltimore has, but we may be seeing the next Super Bowl champions on the field.

Russell Wilson is having a hell of a season for the Seahawks. He ranks 6th in the NFL with 2,937 passing yards, 1st with 24 passing touchdowns, and 5th among quarterbacks with 100 or more passes with just 3 interceptions. Russell Wilson is a legitimate MVP contender.

With the addition of Josh Gordon, things will only get better for the Seahawks offensively. Gordon gives the Seahawks a deep receiving corps that already boasts Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf.

Let's not forget Chris Carson who ranks 8th in the NFL with 879 rushing yards and Will Dissley who's caught 85% of the passes thrown his way.

This offense is for real.

The Seahawks are causing problems on defense as well. They lead the NFL with 14 fumble recoveries. That, along with the 10 interceptions and low turnover rate ranks them 3rd in the NFL with a +9 turnover differential.

Seattle's 10th ranked rush defense will need to be on their A-game if they have any chance of stopping Dalvin Cook. Cook has rushed for 1,017 yards on the season already. He's averages 4.8 yards per carry and has reached the end zone 11 times on the ground. The man is a problem.

Kirk Cousins has stepped up his game in recent weeks. In the last five games, Cousins has passed for 1,382 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. He's completing over 70% of his passes. Kirk Cousins has thrown just three interceptions to his 21 touchdowns this season. Quite simply, the man is playing the quarterback position very well.

I like what I'm seeing from both teams, but it's Seattle who I believe has what it takes to go the distance this season. Don't be surprised to see Russell Wilson represent the NFC in the Super Bowl again.

I'm giving the three points and taking the Seahawks -3 on Monday Night Football.
