It will be the second playoff game between the two teams, the first one of the more memorable in Seahawks history — a  34-14 Seattle win in the 2006 NFC championship game.

Detroit led 14-0 against Dallas in the first half, creating visions of a Lions matchup against the Seahawks next week.

But the Cowboys came back to score the winning touchdown with 2:23 left, scoring the last 17 points of the game.

Dallas will head to Green Bay Sunday, with the winners of the divisional games then meeting the following Sunday a game that will be held in Seattle if the Seahawks beat Carolina.

This will be the fourth game between the two teams since Oct. 7, 2012 as Seattle has played at Carolina each of the last three seasons, winning each in close contests decided in the final minutes — 16-12 in 2012, 12-7 in 2013 and 13-9 on Oct. 26 of this season.

The Seahawks have been installed as an early 10.5-point favorite against a Panthers’ team that entered the playoffs with a 7-8-1 record:
