14 Numbers Of Note From The Seahawks' Wild-Card Win In Philadelphia

14 Numbers that help tell the story of Sunday’s win over the Eagles.


The Seahawks are back in the divisional round of the playoffs thanks to Sunday's 17-9 win in Philadelphia. In addition to that final score—which oddly enough was identical to the score when those teams faced off in Week 12—here are 14 numbers that helped tell the story of Sunday's game. 


Trips to the divisional round of the playoffs for the Seahawks in 10 seasons under Pete Carroll and John Schneider. The Seahawks advanced that far in the postseason six times in 34 seasons prior to Carroll and Schneider's arrival in Seattle.


Playoff games the Seahawks will have played under Carroll and Schneider after Sunday's game at Green Bay, matching the total of playoff games Seattle played in its first 34 seasons prior to 2010.


Receiving yards for DK Metcalf in his playoff debut. That's not only a franchise postseason record, but also the most receiving yards in a playoff game by a rookie in league history.


Passing yards by Russell Wilson on third down. Wilson was 8 for 12 on third down, and also rushed for 18 yards to convert on third-and-15.


Third downs of 10 yards or longer converted by Seattle. 


Touchdowns allowed by Seattle's defense, the third time the Seahawks have done that in the postseason. The Seahawks also kept the Vikings out of the end zone in their sub-zero win at Minnesota four years ago, then did it again the next year against Detroit. 


Sacks recorded by the Seahawks, a postseason franchise record.


The length of Wilson's touchdown pass to Metcalf, which is tied for the third longest pass in Seahawks postseason history. Wilson and Jermaine Kearse connected on a 63-yard score against Carolina in 2015, Dave Krieg and Steve Largent hooked up for a 56-yard touchdown in Miami in 1984, and Wilson and Lockett had a 53-yarder in last year's game at Dallas.


Passing yards for Wilson, his third 300-yard game in the playoffs. Wilson also rushed for a team-high 45 yards.


Postseason completions for Wilson, moving him ahead of Matt Hasselbeck (237) for the most in franchise history.


Postseason games played by Bobby Wagner and Wilson, tied for the most in team history with Kam Chancellor and Jon Ryan.


Turnovers by both teams, just the second time in Seattle's 33 postseason games that that has happened.


Tackles by Bradley McDougald, which led the team. McDougald, who had a sack and two tackles for loss, now has 21 tackles in two playoff appearances.


Postseason touchdown runs by Marshawn Lynch, the eighth most in NFL history. Six of the seven players ahead of him are members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
