Through the first five weeks of the NFL, there are only four remaining unbeaten NFL teams this season:
The Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans, and the Seattle Seahawks all have the privilege to say they are the last unbeaten teams on the market.
For the Seahawks, the 5-0 start is the first in franchise history and it is due to in large part of Russell Wilson and his MVP like start through the first five games - leading the league in passing touchdowns (19).
The offense has been red hot, the defense has been the biggest question mark for this team. The Seahawks have given up the most first downs, and passing yards, through the first five games.
There is obviously some concern in that department.
Thankfully, the team is on a bye week this week, and players, such as Jamal Adams and Quinton Dunbar, should be healed up by the time they come back from the bye week.
With players having a chance to rest and heal up, and with the offense playing like they are playing right now, can the team stay undefeated for the remainder of the year?
Here are the remaining games this season for the Seahawks:

- Week 13, Dec. 6: vs. Giants, 4:05 p.m. ET (Fox)
- Week 14, Dec. 13: vs. Jets, 4:05 p.m. ET (CBS)
- Week 15, Dec. 20: at Redskins, 1 p.m. ET (Fox)

- Week 17, Jan. 3: at 49ers, 4:25 p.m. ET (Fox)
When you look at Weeks 7-12, it might be their toughest test yet.
The challenge for the Seahawks will be playing the Cardinals (3-2), 49ers (2-3), Bills (4-1), Rams (4-1), and Eagles (1-3) twice for the remainder of the year.
We can all somewhat agree that the Jets, the Washington Football Team, and the Giants are probably the easiest games remaining for the season.
The 49ers are fairly banged up on both sides of the ball, but with how the Seahawks are playing on offense I don’t see that team stopping them. But you can never count them out.
The rest of their division -- the Cardinals and the Rams -- are both teams who love to pass the ball and are probably the biggest threat to Seattle with the weaknesses the team has.
And when you add the Bills and Eagles -- two playoff teams from 2019 -- the road to the end of the season gets a little harder.
The first game back from the bye week comes against the Arizona Cardinals, which will most likely be a shootout against Kyler Murray and Wilson the whole game.
The Seahawks have been playing incredible football all season, and I know Seahawks fans and the team want to continue this hot streak they are on and stay unbeaten.
For now, they will rest and prepare their bodies for the long stretch of the remainder of the regular season.
