9. Third time's a charm

It's not often that the Bills make the long trip (2, 593.6 miles to be exact) out to the Pacific Northwest, but when they do, they've had success. The last two times the teams met in Seattle territory (2000, 2004), the Bills have come away with a win. Heading out to see the Hawks for first time in over a decade, the Bills intend to extend their streak.

8. Bills salute the troops

In honor of the NFL's "Salute to Service" campaign, the Bills will be adding camouflage to their white on white look on Monday night. The cause, one that recognizes military members for their service, is one that hits home for several Bills. Playing in primetime, the Bills will proudly show their support.

7. Taylor-Harvin connection

The Bills made a bold move to help replenish their depleted receiver corps this week when they signed wide out Percy Harvin to the 53-man roster. Without a doubt, Harvin's big-play ability gives the Bills added options on offense. Although his first stay with Buffalo was short, Harvin and quarterback Tyrod Taylor formed an obvious connection—especially on the long ball. We haven't seen it much from Taylor this year, but with Percy back in town, expect that to change.

6.  Familiar territory

When it comes to Pete Carroll and company, Percy Harvin is no stranger. The receiver spent the 2013 and 2014 seasons with the Seahawks and will be returning to face his former team for the first time. With that said, I think touchdown celebrations are in order.

5. Sack City

With 26.0 sacks on the season, the Bills are tied for first place in the category with the reining Super Bowl champion Broncos. This should come as no surprise given that the league's sack leader himself, and AFC Defensive Player of the Month, LB Lorenzo Alexander is on Buffalo's squad. Hoping to tack on a few more against Seattle's elusive QB Russell Wilson, expect the Bills to bring the heat. 

4. NFC West success

It's safe to say that the Bills are on a roll against the NFC West this season. Of Buffalo's four wins, three of them have come against this lot. Looking to make a clean sweep of the division with a win against the Hawks, the Bills are up for the challenge.

3. Taking care of business before the bye

Standing at 4-4 at the season's midpoint, the Bills are faced with a big opportunity. Not only would a Buffalo victory cap a two-game losing streak, it would propel the team to 5-4 heading into the bye week. It's time to take care of business, boys.

2. Bills Run Deep

Bills fans, go ahead, you can all breathe a collective sigh of relief, for Shady McCoy is back. Lining Buffalo's backfield for the first time since Week 7, the elite ball carrier will be ready to pick up where he left off. In his absence, running back "Touchdown" Mike Gillislee proved himself a valued playmaker and compliment to McCoy. It won't be easy against Seattle's run defense, but expect these two to run deep into the end zone.

1. Monday Night Football

What's more exciting than Bills football? Well, that's an easy one. Bills football in primetime! This season, the Bills were handed a double dose of the national spotlight. With all eyes watching, the crew will look to return to the 716 with a "W."
