By The Numbers: Russell Wilson Sets Completion Percentage Mark In 26-6 Win Over Detroit Lions

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson now holds the highest completion percentage by a Seattle quarterback in a postseason game.

The Seattle Seahawks are moving on to the NFC's Divisional Round after defeating the Detroit Lions 26-6 on Saturday. To recap notable player performances, team milestones and (of course) how the game played out, we compiled 10 numbers from the Wild Card matchup:


Seahawks fullback and nine-year pro Marcel Reece played in and won his first career NFL playoff game yesterday.


Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril recorded two sacks against his former team. This was Avril's first double-digit sack game in the playoffs of his career. 


Detroit recorded season-lows in three key categories: total net yards (231), time of possession (23:21) and third down conversions (2/11).


Saturday's win increased the Seahawks' postseason home win streak since 2005 to 10. Since 2010, Seattle is 23-4-1 in primetime games (including playoffs). 

Also, for the sixth time in Pete Carroll's seven years as Seahawks head coach, his team advanced to the Divisional Round of the NFL postseason.


Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught 11 of his 12 targets against the Lions and is now Seattle's all-time leader in postseason receptions, surpassing Darrell Jackson. This was the second double-digit receptions game Baldwin has posted in his career. He also top 100 yards receiving for the third time in the playoffs.


Russell Wilson tossed two touchdown passes Saturday — both of them being one-handed grabs by receivers — tying him with Matt Hasselbeck for the most postseason touchdown passes in team history.


Leading the Seahawks to victory, Wilson now holds the most wins by a quarterback in his first five seasons with 64 (playoffs included). He entered the game tied with Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco.


By connecting on two field goals and two extra points, Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka passed Josh Brown as Seattle's all-time postseason scorer with 76 points for his career.


Finishing 23 of 30, Wilson completed 76.7 percent of his passes against the Lions, setting the highest completion percentage by a Seahawks quarterback in a postseason game.


Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls set two marks against the Lions. His 161 rushing yards were not only a season-high, but also the team's single-season rushing record in a playoff game, surpassing the 157 mark set by Marshawn Lynch.

Additionally, Rawls recorded 107 of his 161 yards in the first half, becoming the first Seahawks running back to gain 100 or more yards in a half of a postseason game.
