Seahawks Playoff Picture: Chances and chances after the season

NFC West standings Seahawks take over division lead

NFC West standings Seahawks take over division lead

It's all in the New Orleans Saints' hands now.

Lockett has not yet been 100% since suffering the leg bruise in San Francisco.

The Seattle Seahawks moved up to the No. 2 seed in the NFC, and one analyst believes they are Super Bowl-bound.

The Seattle Seahawks have been chasing San Francisco all season, and they have a chance to catch 49ers tonight. Minutes earlier, that team's coach, Pete Carroll, had stood before his latest version of the Seahawks and told them, essentially, do right, longer.

Two heavyweights in the NFC are going head-to-head Sunday, and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs could be on the line. The same can't be said for the Saints, who lost to the Los Angeles Rams and Atlanta Falcons. Another intriguing part of this scenario: The Vikings finished 11-5 but missed the playoffs after the Rams finished the year with four straight wins. I'll cut them some slack for allowing Ravens QB Lamar Jackson to rush for 101 yards last week since he has done that all year. He has been averaging almost 40 attempts per game. Linebacker Ben Gedeon was placed on injured reserve prior to the game on Monday with a concussion, his second of the season suffered on November 17, leaving his strong side spot in the base defense to Eric Wilson.

Here is a look at Cowherd's full comments about the Seahawks and the other top National Football League teams.

Garoppolo is having a solid season with a 101.2 passer rating, but he has thrown too many interceptions (10 so far) for my liking.

Brees probably won't have to be great in Week 14.

BJP bringing Citizenship (Amendment) Bill for 'cheap' political gains: TMC
The Congress, NCP and Lalu Yadav's RJD have criticised the bill , saying the Constitution does not differentiate on the basis of religion.

The NFC West is one of the toughest divisions in the NFL.

Even with all those insane moments, L.A. still had a chance win their fourth straight game over the Seahawks - until Zuerlein's 44-yard field goal attempt narrowly missed wide right. New Orleans has given up an average of 18.4 points over the last nine games. Seattle is 7-5 against the spread and the over has hit in seven of their 12 games this season. Monday's victory might spur on a few more avi changes. Penny added 74. The Vikings were giving up just 94 yards per game rushing.

New Orleans found itself in a similar situation in Week 9 the 2018 regular season. Perhaps they'll surprise me and reach the promised land by delivering the franchise's first Super Bowl championship since 1994 and sixth overall to tie the Patriots and Steelers. The Packers look awesome some weeks and less so in others; some of their losses (Chargers stumble, Week 10; 49ers shellacking, Week 12) are hard to explain, as are even some of their wins (Chicago, Week 1).

Zimmer has continually backed Rhodes despite his struggles, but with four games remaining and the stakes increasing weekly, there needs to come a point of reckoning.

"Close games are cool, aren't they?"

National Football League schedules may seem complicated, but they are quite simple indeed.

There are problems across the board that have been mitigated at times this season by one area of the team bailing out the other.
