The NFC Divisional Playoffs will take place this weekend with a combination of teams that no one - and I mean no one - could have predicted before the season.

Only one of the top four preseason NFC favorites to win Super Bowl XLV are still alive: the sixth-seeded Green Bay Packers.? They were listed as second favorites by Bodog at 12-1 along with the Minnesota Vikings and the Dallas Cowboys.

The Seattle Seahawks finished the NFL season at 7-9 to end a rather disappointing first campaign for head coach Pete Carroll.? But, thanks to the other dysfunctional teams in the soft NFC West, that was enough to win the division and grab a playoff berth.

By design, division winners are awarded at least one home game in the post season. In a situation that lined up perfectly for the Seahawks, they drew the injury-riddled, defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round and managed to sideswipe them to advance to the Divisional playoffs.

I don't know much about Whitehurst, but Hasselbeck is not a very mobile quarterback.  The fact that he was sacked eight times by the Raiders makes me believe that Perry Fewell is salivating at the matchup.
