The Seahawks are favorites Monday night mainly due to Russell Wilson, the first quarterback in NFL history to lead his team to a winning record in each of their first eight seasons. If the Vikings get the surprise, it's probably because their QB continued their good run.
Kirk Cousins has 12 touchdowns and no selection for a 120.8 pin index in his last five games. He will miss the still injured Adam Thielen in Seattle, but the QB will benefit from the availability of Stefon Diggs, who scored 121 yards and a score in the last Vikings outing.
Below is everything you need to know about the Monday night game of Week 13 between the Seahawks and the Vikings, including the start time and the television channel.

In our NFL Week 13 selections against extended and direct predictions, Sporting News is split in Monday night's game in Seattle. Below are the explanations for each selection.
Choose against the spread: the Vikings were dominated on the December night trip last Monday to Seattle, 21-7. Kirk Cousins and the offensive are performing much better now and are saying goodbye. Cousins has excelled in great games, even on the road this season. But that has already been part of Wilson's DNA. All other signs point to Seattle losing this game, but their time buying to shoot the ball down the field against an overrated high school will make a difference late. Pick: Seahawks wins 27-24 and covers the spread.
Direct prediction: Week 13 ends with a jolt among the NFC playoff contestants, and depending on what happens in another part of the NFL on Sunday, the winner of this game could have the opportunity to make a major leap in The playoffs image. The Seahawks have a couple of advantages such as the home team with the best quarterback, but the Vikings, healthier when they leave their week off, have advantages virtually anywhere else. Dalvin Cook will frustrate Seattle's defense, and Kirk Cousins will get another stellar victory as a visitor. Pick: Vikings 24, Seahawks 20.
