Seahawks react to meeting Saints in NFC divisional-round
To celebrate this now annual occasion, we merge the galaxies of Star Wars with our newest stars, the 2016 #SeahawksDraft class. And as you'll discover, the parallels between our two universes go far far beyond simple name-play. Happy Star Wars Day and #MayThe4thBeWithYou always! View
The Seahawks' divisional-round playoff opponent is set.
The New Orleans Saints collected their first road playoff win in franchise history (1-5) when kicker Shayne Graham booted a 32-yard field goal at the end of regulation to power a 26-24 victory over the Eagles on Saturday night in Philadelphia. The wild-card result means the No. 6-seeded Saints will travel to Seattle to face the No.1-seeded Seahawks at 1:35 p.m. PT next Saturday, Jan. 11 at CenturyLink Field.
Next Saturday's game signals a rematch of a Dec. 2, 2013 Monday Night Football meeting between the two clubs in the Emerald City, when the Seahawks topped the Saints 34-7 behind a dominant defensive performance and a 22/30, 310-yard, 3-TD day from quarterback Russell Wilson.
After a week of waiting to learn who they would face in this year's divisional-round, several Seahawks players took to Twitter to share their reaction to the Saints ousting the Eagles in the wild-card round.
