After a humiliating defeat against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks are on the verge of missing out on the play-offs for the first time since 2011 where they finished with a 7-9 record. This would be only the second time in the Pete Carroll era that Seattle have failed to reach the play-offs.
Now Seattle aren’t entirely out just yet, for them to reach the wild card, a mixture of results must go their way.
- Atlanta must lose their remaining two games against the Saints and Panthers
- Seattle must win their last two games against the Cowboys and Cardinals
- Detroit must lose one of their two remaining games which are against the Bengals and Packers.
If Seattle were to win their last two games, they would finish with a record of 10-6. Should Atlanta lose their remaining games, they would finish the season off with a record of 9-7. The Detroit Lions are also in contention for the wild card with a record of 8-6. They must win all their games if they have a chance of reaching the play-offs, however a loss against Cincinnati on Sunday would eliminate them.
