Weather.com shows 48 and showers late.

First game at century link since 2013 NFC championship game. Seriously doubt this game will be as exciting as that game.
Good luck - enjoy!

Important for Seahawks to win out and beat other teams in the hunt. Dropping GB a half-game below is a start.

Currently tied for 7th by record, 8th in playoff standings due to ATL having tie-breaker over SEA and DAL. Playing MIN later. Still have to play Chiefs, which seems at this moment a locked loss.
DAL plays ATL this weekend. Gotta root for DAL, I guess, as we have tiebreaker of them.
10-6 is a decent record but might not be enough to get in playoffs.

It's like the Seattle version of that "LA Story" seen.
And yes, that was the forecast for the past week.

But now it is low 50s at game time and rain not expected to start until early morning. Not planning on bringing any rain gear except some lighy ponchos.

Here's hoping Wilson can win the game instead of losing it for us this week.

Weather.com is probably using a loop for Seattle weather, while it concentrates all of its focus (and revenue-generating) on The First Winter Storm.

Chiefs, Panthers, Vikings, and Packers are all very losable games. I don't see the hawks making the playoffs this year.

FiveThirtyEight gives them a 29% shot to make it
Football Outsides gives them a 30.5%

So, smart money says no, but it's not an absurd long-shot.

Both give them less than a 1% shot at the title, so I wouldn't buy tickets to Atlanta just yet.

I know that if you live in Seattle, you should turn the "rain alert" off on your Weather.com app. News flash: still raining.
