Seeding: NFC Fifth
Odds of a Deep Playoff Run: 9/1
No wild-card team enters the playoffs hotter than the Seattle Seahawks. They enter January having won four in a row by a ridiculous margin of 170-43.
The Hawks road woes have been well documented this season (they've only won three games away from Seattle), but it may not matter at this point.
Seattle's first opponent will be Washington this Sunday. RG3 and Russell Wilson will provide a great battle of the rookie quarterbacks, and the Redskins come into this game with just as much momentum.
But Seattle's physical defense is back to full strength, and that will give the Skins fits.
Next up for Seattle would be either Atlanta or San Francisco.
Matt Ryan could be Seattle's biggest challenge in the playoffs, but they've beat elite quarterbacks before (see Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady).
And while the Hawks split their season series with the Niners, they most recently trumped San Francisco 42-13.
Seattle still has a tough road ahead, and they can't underestimate any of the teams they face. But of all the wild-card teams, none has a chance at a deep run quite like the Seahawks.
