Divisional Round Recap
Saints at Seahawks:
Battling the wind, rain, and earthquakes whenever the Seahawks scored is a tough battle. What’s even tougher is trying to win after failing to score the first 3 quarters is dang near impossible. Jimmy Graham had 0 catches (if you don’t count the garbage time reception). I would say the Seahawks played a solid game. Nothing flashy, but a lot of running and taking advantage of points where necessary. Russell Wilson was 9-18 with 103 yards. This won’t cut it against the Broncos, but could against the 49ers. The Saints still had a shot at it until Colston decided that the guy 7 yards ahead of him was considered a “lateral.” I won’t harp on him too much, but why not step out of bounds with 8 seconds left on the 36 yard line. You get another shot to get 10 yards and could have a 25 yard throw to tie the game! I guess the play was drawn up and practiced during the week (meaning the Saints thought they would be down or lose the game), would have been crazy if it had worked.
