If The Playoffs Started Today: The Seahawks Are Back Edition

WilsonSeahawks

I’m not entirely sure the Seahawks have fixed their defensive issues, but their offense looks A-OK in my book.

Russell Wilson posted three touchdown tosses in a dominating win over the Vikings on Sunday. Meanwhile, it appears Thomas Rawls has supplanted Marshawn Lynch as a formidable rushing threat.

If they get their defense in shouting distance of classic Legion of Boom, it’s a wrap.

Elsewhere, New England’s horrific loss to the Eagles on Sunday has landed them on Wild Card weekend for the moment.
