But despite all of this, Seattle remains undefeated in the NFC Playoffs for three years running and that doesn’t seem to be changing. It’s easy to say they’ll stumble next week, but no matter how down for the count they appear to be they always seem to win — which is the only thing you need to do in the January in the NFL. </p>.
