NFC Champions – Seattle Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks capped off a great season by winning the NFC Championship game last Sunday! They punched their ticket to the big dance and are Superbowl bound! With a record of 13-3 in the regular season and only one loss at home the Seahawks are a force to be reckoned with. Their #1 ranked defense with shutdown CB Richard Sherman and FS Earl Thomas , has proved all season long to give opposing offenses fits. Out of the 16 regular season games the defense only had 5 games that they allowed the opposing offense to score more then 20 points per game.
The offense on the hand are ranked 26th in the NFL. Although in my opinion that is a little deceiving. QB Russell Wilson may not throw 300 plus yards every game, but when you have Marshawn “THE BEAST” Lynch in your back yard there is not a need for it! The man just craves up defenses! Wilson does have some heady blue collar wide receivers in Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate and Jermaine Kearse that can and do make plays for him. Do not forget one of his best weapons his pump fake making defenses whiff all season!
A side note that I am compelled to add as a Phish fan when Wilson steps out onto the field make sure to serenade him
Good Luck Seattle!!!
