Now the Seahawks wait. But they do so in a happy state, having beaten the Saints 23-15 thanks in large part to two Marshawn Lynch (pictured above) TD runs.
The Seahawks will now host either the Panther or 49ers next Sunday for the right to go to the Super Bowl Feb. 2. Each of those would be a rematch (or rematches) or games earlier this season. And there will be lots of hype and time to talk about those when the time comes.
