The Seattle Seahawks are the three-seed in the NFC and they will host the six-seeded Detroit Lions in the wild card round of the playoffs next weekend. The Lions had a chance to win their first division title since 1993 with a win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, but they lost for the third straight week.
Detroit finishes the year 9-7, while the Seahawks finished at 10-5-1.
The Washington Redskins would’ve been the team but they lost to the New York Giants 19-10 on Sunday.
Seattle has won a playoff game in each of the last four seasons under Pete Carroll. The Lions haven’t won a playoff game since 1991. Seattle leads the series 8-5 all-time, with the last game being a 13-10 win for the Seahawks on Monday Night Football in 2015, the infamous “batted ball” game. Detroit won the matchup in 2012, Russell Wilson’s rookie season, 28-24.
