Why does everyone ignore the fact that Seattle is a sub .500 team on the road and they have not won a game in a dome in 2 years.

The Seahawks will get housed in DC, you heard it here first.

our worst loss on the season was to a very good san fran team on the road by 7 points. Plus that was in the first half of the season when the Seahawks were running a VERY vanilla offense. Go ahead, discount them by just looking at the road record. That doesn't tell near the whole story. We lost one game in the second half of the season, and Russell Wilson has almost been untouchable. We get Brandon Browner back, defenses travel well on the road and did I forget to mention we have the number one defense in the NFL? Don't get pissy when the hawks run over your falcons.

Everyone is saying that seattle is SO horrible on the road, but every loss we had was a one possession loss, it's not like we are horrid, early on we just didn't make that one play to win the game. I think the team has proven very well that they can make those plays in the second half. When was the last time the falcons won a playoff game by the way?? Mike Vick era??? give me a break, if you want to throw numbers like 'seahawks haven't won in a dome in two years', at least the Seahawks have won some playoff games since 2004.

Are the Seahawks 3-5 on the road this season???

Did the Seahawks win a game indoors this season???

Those two stats are very telling to me. Seattle is a monster at home, no doubt. Get them on the road and they're more than beatable.

Have you watched football for more than a year??

if the answer is yes, you know that momentum plays a much bigger part in football than any sport, and right now, the Seahawks are clicking at the right time, and won big games on the road in the second half of the season. What happened in the first half with a COMPLETELY different offense has almost no bearing on how the Seahawks truly are. They limited russell wilson inside the pocket, and didn't play to his strengths, we had a much different QB back there, but after they opened up the offense for him, he is 7-1. Plus, the Seahawks did win a game indoors on the road, in Toronto, granted, it wasn't the biggest challenge. But have the Falcons put up 50 on ANY team on the road in the past.... I don't know 5 years? The Seahawks have figured it out, both at home and on the road, if you can't see that, I suppose you will have to find out in 2 weeks

I'm with most here, Seattle is a considerably better team than Atlanta but Atlanta could beat Was or Minn if that's who they play. Pretty exciting playoffs even though our team is participating as much as our fans.

Over or under 2 points for Atlanta if they play the Seahawks?
