SeavsMin: Seahawks win in a cold low scoring battle 10-9



It was a close game with not a whole lot of action. It was the third coldest game in NFL postseason history. The Seahawks were held scoreless through 3 quarters. Finally on a busted play where Patrick Lewis the Seahawks center overshot Russell Wilson, the Seahawks got something going. Russell ran back picked up the ball and like a magician scrambled to his right to hit a wide open Tyler Lockett. It set them up in the Red Zone, Wilson then hit Doug Baldwin for a Touchdown. The Seahawks then got a fumble forced by Kam Chancellor on Adrian Peterson and scored a field goal to take the lead 10-9. The Seahawks offense couldn't run time off the clock and punted the ball back to the Vikings. The Vikings marched all the down to the redzone, courtesy of a passing interference call on Kam Chancellor and a big reception by the Vikings tightend. The Vikings kicker Walsh had a chip shot 27 yard field goal with less than 30 seconds to go. He shanked it wide left. It should have been a sure victory for Minnesota. Richard Sherman might have played a role by getting in the head of Walsh . The previous kick Sherman missed the block by a whisker and it was certainly in the head of the kicker. The Vikings alignment was all to the left, maybe to keep Sherman as far away as possible. Whatever the reason the Seahawks squeak by and will head to Carolina next Sunday in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
