National Football League playoffs

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.
