5. Playoffs Baby

The Seattle Seahawks officially punched their ticket into the postseason today. All that’s left is to determine if they’ll be the No. 5 or the No. 6 seed.

Obviously, the No. 5 seed would be ideal. That means playing against whatever awful team managed to “win” the NFC East.

Falling to the No. 6 seed likely means playing on the road in Green Bay on Wild Card Weekend. While both scenarios are winnable for Seattle, the NFC East game is obviously the easier of the two possibilities.

To get that No. 5 seed, the Seahawks need to win one more game and have the Packers beat Minnesota in Week 17. Seattle gets the No. 5 seed no matter what if they win both of their remaining games.
