WINNERS: Seattle Seahawks
Remember when we all thought the Seahawks were done? That was adorable, wasn’t it?
Now Seattle is playing lights out football. The defense might actually be better, the offense is finding ways to make Jermaine Kearse and Luke Wilson look like Pro Bowlers and it is very, very hard to win in Seattle—as the Carolina Panthers can tell you.
Marshawn Lynch didn’t even have a great game (rumor has it he was feeling ill)and yet the Seahawks absolutely left no doubt they were the better team offensively on Saturday.
Kam Chancellor’s 90-yard blink-and-you-missed-it pick-six was just the capper on an already amazing day for everyone involved.
It’s hard to bet against this team right now, though the Packers are a pretty good matchup for them. The truth is, this should be a fantastic NFC Championship game regardless of the outcome.
