There's no denying the Seattle Seahawks are a much different team on the road than at home, but can it all be placed on their location forcing them to travel more than any other team? Travel from west-to-east has been a debated topic in the NFL and we have found data that is certainly interesting, though not largely conclusive on whether or not the Pacific teams are at a significant disadvantage.
Keep in mind the longest road winning streak in NFL history belongs to the 1988-90 49ers, who actually won 21 consecutive games away from Candlestick Park when including the playoffs.
Regardless of whether or not you think there's a problem here, it shouldn't be that hard on the NFL to schedule more of these West/East games for 4:15 p.m. ET.

Auburn is the most unlikely contender ever to reach the BCS title game, but the Tigers are also hitting top speed at the right time to defend the SEC banner in Pasadena. Plus a new top 25, the Lowsman Trophy watch and the rest from the final regular-season weekend on campus.
