The Seattle Seahawks are the scariest non-division winner in the NFL playoffs.
Russell Wilson is playing at a level that, to some, is higher than Robert Griffin III, and the entire defense is so ferocious and fundamentally sound.
Marshawn Lynch leads the league's third-ranked rushing attack, and suddenly, Golden Tate and Sidney Rice are a formidable receiving duo.
Vegas Super Bowl Odds: 12/1
The Seahawks' battle with the Redskins, for my money, is the most intriguing wild-card contest. The two offenses are eerily similar, with plenty of running, some read-option and the propensity to push the ball down field after play-action.
However, on defense, Seattle will slow down RG3 to a certain degree, as the rookie star clearly isn't 100 percent coming off a knee injury.
The front seven will keep Alfred Morris under wraps as well, leading to the Seahawks sixth straight win.
If the Packers beat the Vikings, Seattle will then travel to Atlanta to face Matt Ryan and the Falcons.
In what should be a classic back-and-forth affair, the ground-and-pound running game and big, intimidating corners will be instrumental in a consecutive upset for the Seahawks.
I can't envision them beating the Packers in Green Bay or the 49ers in San Francisco, though.
A fun and wild ride for a franchise on the rise with Wilson under center.
