With four games remaining in the regular season, the Seattle Seahawks have very little room for error when it comes to securing one of the two NFC wild card spots. With their 43-16 drumming of the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Dec. 2, the Seahawks jumped into the playoff picture as the fifth seed, if the season were to end after the weekend. Three of Seattle’s remaining games will be played in the cozy confines of Century Link Field.
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson finished the day against the 49ers with four touchdown passes in only 17 attempts. The highlight of the day had to be the play of All-Pro middle linebacker Bobby Wagner who capped a 12-tackle performance with a 98-yard pick-six interception that shook the stadium to its foundation. Wagner also had a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Seattle (7-5) will host the Minnesota Vikings (6-6) on Monday, Dec. 10, at 5:15 p.m. The Seahawks will then pay a visit to the struggling 49ers (2-10) on Sunday, Dec. 16, followed by a huge home match-up against the Kansas City Chiefs(10-2) on Sunday, Dec. 23 at 5:20 p.m. The regular season will come to a close in Seattle as the Arizona Cardinals (3-9) pay a visit.
