The first of two 2016 NFC Wild Card games this weekend pits the Detroit Lions against the Seattle Seahawks on NBC Sports TV. Seattle has the 12th man on their side that won’t bode well for Detroit’s chances. Watch Seahawks vs Lions live streaming online free on NBC Sports Live Extra Saturday night.
Detroit could have avoided an away game at Seattle had they been able to win their division by beating the Packers a week ago. Rather than play at home against the Giants, the Lions find themselves playing in CenturyLink Field where opposing teams other than the Arizona Cardinals rarely win.
A big reason for the Lions stumbling late is an injured finger on Matthew Stafford’s throwing hand. If it feels better today then the match up to watch is Stafford and the Lions offense against the Seahawks heralded defense.
Seattle ran away with the NFC West when every other team in the division played pitifully for much of the season. Losing Tyler Lockett to a broken leg two weeks ago didn’t help, though Devin Hester has been signed to return kicks for the postseason.
The x-factor in this game could be Russell Wilson and how mobile he is. If Wilson is on target then the Seahawks should continue their perfect record at home during the NFL Playoffs.
