Seattle Seahawks: A Look at What is Next for Their 2013 NFL Playoffs

Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE

The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Washington Redskins in wild-card weekend for the 2013 NFL Playoffs which has earned them a trip to the Georgia Dome next Sunday to take on the Atlanta Falcons.

The Seahawks went a whopping 8-0 at home this season, and just 3-5 on the road. The thing is that lately these guys are playing football at a phenomenal level, and no NFC team wants to play them anywhere.

Even with Hotlanta going 7-1 at the Dome they are surely still very wary of this Seahawks team. As your 2013 NFL Playoffs Insider for Rant Sports I will have a game preview early this week.

Under head coach Pete Carroll the Seahawks are now 27-24, including 2-1 in the playoffs.

These two will meet in the 2013 regular season (also at the Georgia Dome), but this game will see the winner head to the NFC championship game.

The Seahawks preyed on an injured quarterback on wild-card weekend, but they will face a tough test vs Matt Ryan and the Falcons #6 overall ranked pass game. All due respect to the Redskins wide receiver crew, but Atlanta boasts the likes of Roddy White, Julio Jones, plus toss in Tony Gonzalez and we see superior talent.

Running back Michael Turner is better at home than on the road, but (all due respect to him) he is a notch below the running attack that Seattle faced in wild-card weekend.
