Seattle headed to the ATL..

The Seattle Seahawks are headed to Atlanta to take on the Falcons next Sunday by virtue of a 21 – 14 victory over the Washington Redskins.  Coming from behind (trailing 14 – 0) the Seahawks were powered by a strong rushing game from Marshawn Lynch and excellent QB play from Russell Wilson.  In fairness to the Redskins, RG III was playing on basically one leg.  Clearly, he was not the RG III of earlier in the year prior to the knee injury.  Some might question whether the knee was healed enough for him to even play?  Washington struggled with several bad snaps and when one went awry and RG tried to fall on the ball,  it was clear he could not move his knee to even gather the ball.  He was on the ground while staff and doctors gathered around him but he did walk off to cheers from the crowd.  He could not return and Seattle went on to win the game and advance to next week’s playoff round.

Next weekend the Falcons, who desperately want (and need) to win a playoff game, will have their hands full with this red hot Seattle team!
