Seattle Seahawks Playoff Scenarios: Who Could Seahawks Host In 2017 NFL Playoffs?

There's still one more week left in the 2016 National Football League regular season, so there's still time to fix it.

"There's no doubt (the team has a certain confidence in Seattle), three times with Carson", Arians said after the win Saturday. This time, it likely will end up costing Seattle a first-round bye in the playoffs.

They wasted a golden opportunity to put themselves in ideal position Saturday, and the path out of the NFC now looks a whole lot more daunting.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett left Saturday afternoon's game against the Arizona Cardinals with a gruesome right leg injury that he suffered in the second quarter.

On fourth down, Arizona's defensive tackle Rodney Gunter raced in free over the center and guard and slammed the quarterback to the turf for the Cardinals' fifth sack of the opening half.

Baldwin was on both knees tapping the turf and hugging his fellow wide receiver around his neck. Indeed, Seattle is averaging 28.0 points and 379 points per game at 6.2 yards per play at home this season.

Arizona had 370 yards of offense against a Seattle defense that hasn't been the same since Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas went down with a season-ending injury three weeks ago. Chandler Catanzaro hit a 43-yard field goal on the final play that opened the opportunity for either Detroit or Atlanta to slide in on the final weekend and deny Seattle the opportunity at rest and a home game in the divisional round. Seattle should move the ball effectively against an Arizona defense that is allowing 29.7 points and 304 total yards at 10.2 yards per point on the road.

This time, the veteran kicker, who has missed four PATs this season, had one blocked.

All that was left was the PAT attempt. It helped, and the Seahawks rallied improbably to get back in the game. The Seahawks, who have already clinched the division title, could finish as the No. 4 seed in the NFC. Instead, Seattle showed up and delivered another lackluster first half performance, albeit against a team that always seems to give it trouble. They could play the victor of the wild card weekend fresh.

A cart came out to take Lockett off the field after the play.
