The Seattle Seahawks traveled to San Francisco last weekend. They entered last Sunday’s contest against the 49ers as the consensus No. 1-ranked team in the NFL. Despite racking up their second loss of the season, they left San Francisco on Sunday night as the consensus No. 1-ranked team in the NFL.
The good news: The Seahawks’ destiny is still 100 percent in their own control.
Despite the Seahawks’ stumble in San Francisco, they should still be favored in each of their three remaining games to close out the regular season. Coming into last Sunday’s game, the Seahawks only needed to come up with two wins to seal the NFC’s top seed. That still remains true. Their margin of error, however, has diminished by 50 percent.
