The two teams look a lot a like in several areas and positions. I would give the edge on offensive personal to the Bengals and the edge on defense to the Seahawks.

The Hawks offense lacks a real receiving threat like AJ Green and the Bengals defense lacks a turnover making player in the secondary like Richard Sherman.

Both have young quarterbacks and good offensive lines and both have defenses that played lights out at home this year. So what is it that separates the Bengals and the Seahawks?

Some would argue head coaches, and my response to that: Good argument.
