The Seattle Seahawks, fresh off yet another playoff victory, will travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons in the NFC’s Divisional round, with a trip to the NFC title game on the line. It’s a rematch of one of this season’s best games, and a rematch of Russell Wilson’s first playoff loss.
Outside of the story lines, it’s a terrific match-up between one of the NFL’s best defenses and the best offense in the league. A dominant run defense against an all-time single season running back tandem. A top-2 wide receiver against a top-2 cornerback. Vic Beasley against Garry Gilliam. Yes, you can go down a list of titan-clashes on the horizon, and it begins on Saturday afternoon.
Battle of the birds, with both hungry for revenge. And just 180 minutes to Super Bowl glory.
