NFC Wild Card: Detroit Lions at Seattle Seahawks - Live Blog

The Detroit Lions (9-7) squeaked themselves into the playoffs and now have to face a very strong team in the Seattle Seahawks (10-5-1).

The Detroit Lions had the NFC North within their grasps after winning eight of nine games during the middle of the season, but the NFL is all about when you get hot and the Lions peaked way to early finishing the year with a three game losing streak and barely a Wild Card berth.

Fortunately for them, the Seattle Seahawks are Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde down the stretch. From scoring five points one week to forty the next, you just don’t know which team is going to show up anymore.

This is one game that I will probably skip. It’s Saturday evening and I’ve got better things to do than watch two teams I don’t really care about. My prediction is Seahawks 31, Lions 24, but that’s only because I already made a prediction on Friday.
