Kids Greg Zuerlein Jersey After the AFC took the stage on Saturday, it’s the NFC’s turn for some postseason football with the Seattle Seahawks taking on the Minnesota Vikings, and the Green Bay Packers traveling to face Washington.
Demar Dotson Authentic Jersey The tone was set early between the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans when Chiefs return man Knile Davis returned the opening kickoff 106 yards to the house. The Chiefs would go on to win 30-0 — a score that may not indicate how lopsided the game really was. The night game was even wilder, replete with crazy catches, on-field scuffles, boneheaded penalties and an unbelievable ending that amounted to a 18-16 Pittsburgh Steelers win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Vikings are the division winners, the higher seed and the hosts of a Sunday wild card matchup, but most are picking the Seahawks to blaze right through Minnesota en route to the NFC Divisional round. While the Vikings have the better record at 11-5, the Seahawks finished 10-6 with wins in six of the last seven weeks of the season, including a 36-6 destruction of the Arizona Cardinals.
Seattle won’t have Marshawn Lynch to lean on though, and the Vikings are sure to give Adrian Peterson more touches than the eight he received in a 38-7 loss to the Seahawks in the first week of December. The Seahawks are No. 1 in rushing defense and No. 1 in scoring defense, but if any running back can find room and get some offense going against Seattle, it’s Peterson, who led the NFL in rushing yards and touchdowns.
Washington didn’t wildly exceed expectations, but they did take advantage of a poor NFC East and took the crown that nobody else seemed to want. They finished atop the division at 9-7, making it through the regular season with four consecutive wins to pass the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles.
They are set to host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, a slight favorite. Our panel is split on whether or not Washington can pull off the upset.
