The Seattle Seahawks have boasted one of the league's most dynamic offenses this season. Quarterback Russell Wilson has passed for 26 touchdowns, the second-highest total through seven weeks in NFL history. The receiving duo of Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf have seven touchdowns apiece.

With all of that passing firepower, how much will we see the Seahawks attempt to run the ball against the Bills on Sunday? Your prediction could win you prizes.

Players will be presented with a total of 14 multiple-choice questions for each game. Here is a sneak peek at one the questions for this Sunday.

Will the Bills allow a 100-yard rusher?

Seattle's gaudy passing numbers have left little room for individual rushing totals as the Seahawks have not had a 100-yard rusher this season. Wilson came closest with an 84-yard day against Arizona in Week 7. Running back Chris Carson – who is questionable with a foot injury – had a season-high 80 rushing yards against Miami back in Week 4.

As a team, however, the Seahawks do rank 11th in the NFL with an average of 125.4 rushing yards per game and seventh with an average of five yards per carry.

The Bills hosted a similarly talented passing attack in their Week 6 matchup with Kansas City and made a concerted effort to limit the damage done by quarterback Patrick Mahomes through the air. Mahomes ended up with 225 yards – his third-lowest mark of the season – and the Bills held the Chiefs to 26 points, their third-lowest output to date. 

Taking away Kansas City's strength, however, opened the door for big gains on the ground. Rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for a season-high 161 yards, one of three 100-yard rushing performances Buffalo has allowed this season.

So, will Seattle continue to look for offense through the air? Or will the Bills build a game plan around taking away that option and thus open the door for gains on the ground. Download the Bills Mobile app, presented by M&T Bank, to make your prediction.
