With our weekly Over/Under projection, we'll take a look at how quarterback Jimmy Clausen will stack up against the Seattle Seahawks defense.

From a statistical perspective (Note: all stats are combined from the 2010 and 2014 season, plus 2 quarters of play in 2015):

- 18 games played, 11 games started | Record: 1-10

- 53% completion percentage | 1,902 yards | 5 TD's | 11 INT's

In Clausen's first appearance this season-- last week's loss to the Cardinals-- he completed 14/23 passes for 121 yards and one interception. That was in just over two quarters of play.

From the Seattle defensive side of things, they will likely have Kam Chancellor suited up, as he has decided to end his holdout and return to work. Chancellor has been staying away from the team due to a contract dispute, but apparently showed back up this week in playing shape and ready to go.

In two games this season, Seattle has given up an average of 255 passing yards per game, and totaled four sacks.  They have yet to catch an interception.

For the purposes of this exercise, let's do a quick Over/Under on Jimmy Clausen.

O/E versus Seahawks:

Passing yards: 200.5

Passing TD's: 1.5

Sacks: 2.5

Interceptions: 1.5

Let us know below how you think Clausen will fare this Sunday versus Seattle.
