3. They have homefield advantage.
Well we’ve said this before, but the Seahawks are one of the best teams in football at their own stadium.
Seattle went 7-1 at home this season, their only loss coming to the Dallas Cowboys early in the season. But going back to when Russell Wilson took over the team in 2012, Seattle is 22-2 at CenturyLink Field during the regular season and 24-2 if you include last year’s playoffs.
Homefield advantage also means Seattle doesn’t have to travel to a climate they aren’t used to or a time zone they aren’t used to.
Just ask Dorothy Gale: there’s no place like home.
