Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass on fourth down and Seattle’s top-ranked defense forced two late turnovers, lifting the Seahawks into their second Super Bowl with a 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
Yes, the two teams are similar. No, they aren’t exactly the same, and neither is the checklist of what each team needs to do to come out the victor and book their trip to East Rutherford for the Super Bowl.
Percy Harvin has still not cleared the required NFL concussion tests and was held out of his second straight practice as the Seahawks prepare to face the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC Championship. At […]
San Francisco possesses a fast defense; their ends are fast, their linebackers are fast and despite not having the All-Pro secondary the Seahawks boast, they, too, can run and cover ground. Giving them more ground to cover is large advantage to Wilson and the Seahawks.
While I did not see a significant difference in the style — it’s still a zone blocking scheme with a goal of often getting the guards and center into the linebackers’ faces — the run play calls seemed a little bit different from Lynch’s perspective.
I don’t care if he threw for 3,300 yards, 300 yards or three yards. Whether it’s 26 TD passed or none. Russell Wilson is the Most Valuable Player on the 53-man roster. And that’s one big-time accomplishment, considering there are several pro bowlers and at least three All-Pro’s donning Seahawks Blue every week.
Russell Wilson threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns, and the Seattle Seahawks became the first team to clinch a spot in the NFC playoffs with a 34-7 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Monday night.
Thanks to two quick interceptions early in the fourth quarter, Seattle was able to put up 17 points in the final quarter and cruise to a 41-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Seattle is the first team this season to have double-digit wins and finally gets their Bye Week.
Percy Harvin made an impact in his season debut, returning a kickoff 58 yards late in the first half to set up Russell Wilson’s 19-yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin, and the Seahawks rolled to their franchise-record 13th straight home win beating the Minnesota Vikings 41-20 on Sunday.
While the Seahawks can’t erase the memory of last year’s 30-28 NFC Divisional Playoff loss to the Falcons, they get a decent consolation prize this season with a 33-10 beat down this Sunday.
