Both of these teams had impressive wins in their last games of the season and while the Vikings won their division and beat the Packers on the road in their season finale they are still the betting underdog in this Wild Card match up.
While the Seahawks are the Wild Card team and they are on the road they are hot winners of 6 of their last 7 games and they snapped the Cardinals 9-game winning streak in their season finale.
These 2 teams met in week 13 with the Seahawks laying a 38-7 beat down on the Vikings in Minnesota.
In their last games the Seahawks beat the Arizona Cardinals 36-6 and the Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers 20-13.
On the season the Vikings are 6-2 at home and the Seahawks are 5-3 on the road.
In the 2nd half Seattle QB Russell Wilson has been playing great and has entered the conversation for league MVP. In the win over the Cardinals he passed for 197 yards with 3 TD and 0 INT.
He will be facing a Minnesota pass defense that ranks 12th in the league and played well in the big win over Green Bay last week.
The Seahawks rushed for 145 yards in the Arizona win with Christine Michael rushing for 102 yards. The Beast Marshawn Lynch has not played since November because of an injury, but he may go in this game, which would be a huge lift for the Seattle offense.
The Vikings rank 17th in the league in defending the run.
The Seahawks have won their last 5 road games.
Teddy Bridgewater has had a decent season, but the key to stopping the Vikings is containing RB Adrian Peterson, who led the league in rushing this season.
In the win over the Packers Bridgewater only had 99 passing yards with an INT, but the team rushed for 151 yards.
The main reason the Vikings were crushed at home by the Seahawks in week 13 was that Peterson was held to only 31 rushing yards.
If he is held in check again Seattle should easily win their game, as Bridgewater cannot carry the team with his arm.
Seattle ranks 2nd in the league in pass defense and 1st in run defense.
