The Seahawks have the best third-down pass defense (by DVOA) since 1989. The Broncos, after having the fourth-best last season, have one of the very worst. That would seem to favor Seattle on both sides of the ball, but the Seahawks have been a poor third-down offense in recent weeks and Denver has that outstanding offense (16-of-26 on third down in the playoffs). I dug into our game-charting stats for this matchup, which is still painfully more than a week away.

Trevor Siemian and Carson Wentz rank in the bottom three in average air yards. Do good quarterbacks usually increase their air yards with more experience, or do their passes actually get shorter over time?
