I've been sick as a dog this week, and through all the vomiting and the groaning and the general misery this game has stood out like a bright, shining beacon on the horizon.  The Seahawks and the playoffs, together again -- how great is that? When the Hawks improbably clawed their way into the postseason in 2010 with a 7-9 record, all they did was pull off one of the most exciting upset wins in the history of the NFL playoffs by knocking off the defending champions, the New Orleans Saints.  This time around, the Seahawks didn't sneak their way into the postseason, they sprinted their way in with an 11-5 record, the best defense in the NFL, and an offense capable of breaking off big plays at a moment's notice. The Redskins have a strong offense, with rookie QB Robert Griffin III and rookie RB Alfred Morris providing most of the sparks, but their defense is another matter.  The unit has been able to mask a lot of problems by racking up turnovers (5th most in the league), but Seattle's offense doesn't cough up the ball very often (just 18 times all season, good for 7th fewest in the NFL).  Also, Washington ranks at or near the bottom of the league in multiple pass defense categories, so if they can't snag some interceptions, Russell Wilson and his receivers will be off to the races. Today is a damned good day to be a Seahawks fan.
