The Seattle Seahawks are on a hot streak -- and we mean white hot -- as they head into Sunday's first-round playoff game against the Washington Redskins. It feels like this could be the year the Seahawks win it all.
Long-suffering Seahawk fans have not yet fully recovered from being beaten by the Pittsburgh Steelers (and the referees) in the 2006 Super Bowl.
This season has that magical feeling that's needed to be world champions. The Seahawks are being led by a 5-foot-11 rookie quarterback taken in the third round of the draft. Many considered Russell Wilson too short to even make an NFL team. Yet, he's been playing great and his been key in Seattle's five-game winning streak.
Running back Marshawn Lynch has been in Beast Mode all season. The defense is fast and its strong.
There's a lot of football to be played before Super Bowl XLVII, but heading into this weekend Seahawk fans have reason to be optimistic.
