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 Team Grades: Seattle Runs Away From Detroit With Second-Half SurgeThe Seattle Seahawks won their 10th straight home playoff game on Saturday night against the visiting Detroit Lions, grinding out a 26-6 win at CenturyLink Field. With the win, the Seahawks will advance to next weekend's NFC Divisional Playoff round where they will face the NFC South Division champion Atlanta Falcons. Those two teams played in the same postseason round back in 2012, with the Falcons emerging victorious. The key to this win over the Lions was the successful ground game the Seattle offense mounted behind a finally healthy Thomas Rawls, who ran for 161 yards and a touchdown against the Detroit defense.
