Seahawks Team Grades: Mistakes In All Phases Of Game Doom Seattle In 36-20 Road Loss To AtlantaOn the bright side, the Seattle Seahawks didn't fall behind by 20 points early in this game like they have three times under Head Coach Pete Carroll in playoff losses on the road. However, after taking an early lead, the Seahawks did fall behind eventually by a big margin thanks to errors on offense, defense and special teams. Those errors proved too much to overcome as Seattle lost on the road to Atlanta, 36-20, in the NFC Divisional Playoffs. The biggest mistake came on special teams in the second quarter where a holding penalty wiped out a huge punt return and changed the momentum of the contest for good as the Falcons used the big break to run off 19 straight points.

Seahawks Opponent Profile: Falcons' Top-Ranked Scoring Offense Is Tough To StopIt's tempting to compare the NFC Divisional Playoff match-up between the Seattle Seahawks and the Atlanta Falcons to Super Bowl XLVIII, where Seattle's defense was able to stifle the Denver Broncos and their No. 1-ranked offense. The comparison isn't fair, though, simply because the 2016 Seahawks defense is nothing like the 2013 version that dominated the NFL on its way to Seattle's first league championship. As the Seahawks chase a second title, they will have to find a way to slow down the Falcons offense without the same level of talent that the Super Bowl-winning defense possessed.
