It’s finally here, the game that could just about sew up all the regular-season goals that the Seahawks have this season — specifically, homefield playoff advantage through the NFC playoffs.
Which makes it worth wondering, as we did before the 49ers game in week two — is this the biggest regular-season game in Seahawks’ history?
I wrote about what I thought were the 10 biggest Seahawks regular-season games prior to the 49ers game.
Given the stakes and the records of the two teams and that it features a QB who is No. 5 all-time in passing yards, this one may indeed be bigger.
Should be a fun night at the stadium (or in front of the TV).
