Minnesota Vikings

Plenty to watch Sunday while waiting for Seahawks on Monday


If those two things happen, Seattle and the 49ers are each 10-2 but the Seahawks hold the tiebreaker over San Francisco because of their victory in Santa Clara on Nov. 11.


The three times Seattle has reached the Super Bowl it has done so by having the top seed and then winning two playoff games at home (in 2005, 2013 and 2014).


5 seed and, as of today would play Dallas (which will hold the lead in the NFC East at the end of Sunday regardless of what the Eagles do due to the head-to-head tiebreaker) in the wild-card round.


Given that the Seahawks can take care of the 49ers themselves next month, Seattle fans will need to root for San Francisco if the biggest worry is the number-one seed.


But if Green Bay loses and Seattle beats the Vikings, the Packers and Minnesota would top the NFC Central at 8-4.


Sherman faced Seattle twice last season but only after Earl Thomas saw his Seahawks career come to an end on the same Arizona field.
