Monday Round-Up: Media React To Seattle Seahawks 26-6 Victory Over Detroit Lions

A round-up of media reaction following the Seahawks' 26-6 Wild Card victory over the Lions.

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" about the Seattle Seahawks following the team's 26-6 victory over the Detroit Lions in the NFC Wild Card round.

What They're Saying: Seahawks 26, Lions 6

Seahawks fullback Marcel Reece was the only player to leave Saturday's game with a notable injury. 

When Paul Richardson made his one-handed touchdown catch, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll initially didn’t think he made the play. 

How retired NFL wide receiver Steve Smith inspires Doug Baldwin. 

Russell Wilson completed the highest percentage of passes in a Seahawks postseason game on Saturday. 

The victory was an encouraging step for the Seahawks as they prepare for Atlanta. 

Game highlights can be found here. 

Thomas Rawls and the Seahawks run game are the key for a deep playoff run, writes Greg Bishop of Sports Illustrated. 

The Seahawks have found their identity just in time for the playoffs, writes Lindsay Jones of USA Today. 

Seahawks safety Earl Thomas inspired teammates before the game. 

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia looks at how the Seahawks and Falcons match up in the Divisional Round. 

Finally, Robert Mays of The Ringer praised the Seahawks’ playmakers: 

Doug Baldwin (11 catches on 12 freaking targets for 104 yards and a touchdown) continues his steady march as one of the game's most reliable pass catchers, but he wasn't alone in sparking Seattle's passing game against the Lions. Paul Richardson made three of the most ridiculous grabs you'll ever see. With Wilson under center, the Seahawks offense is always going to have potential to put up points in a hurry. That potential could become reality if the team is able to get contributions from unexpected places.
