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.
The Seattle Seahawks have a tall task ahead of them in the form of the New Orleans Saints. Jason A. Churchill sees the same simple formula for victory the team enjoys every week.
The week off for Seattle has done wonders for their health. With just four players on the injury report this week, the Seahawks are ready to take on the Saints Monday night.

Currently at 10-1 and the only team in the league with double-digit wins, there isn’t much to critique about the 2013 Seahawks. But who are the best players on the team so far?
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.

2013 is on pace to wind up as only the second NFL season in the past 20 years without a single 1,500-yard rusher.
