Seattle goes in search of sixth straight

The Seattle Seahawks will look to clinch the NFC West Division title on Sunday afternoon when they welcome in the St. Louis Rams to CenturyLink Field.

Home and away victories over the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals, along with a defeat of the Eagles in Philadelphia, have propelled the Seahawks to the top of the Division and Seattle enters the final regular weekend of the season with a chance to grab the top seed in Conference.

That doesn’t bode well for the rest of the NFC, even if the Seahawks are not automatic winners when they play at home, with SeattleĀ 2.00 to win the NFC Championship.

Last week Seattle dealt a near fatal blow to the Cardinals’ chances of winning the Division with a 35-6 rout at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

Without either Carson Palmer or Drew Stanton, Arizona went with Ryan Lindley as the former San Diego State star completed 18-of-44 for 216 yards and one interception.

Speculation had mounted all week that rookie Logan Thomas would get the nod against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, but Lindley will get a further opportunity instead.

Over in San Francisco the game is expected to be the last of the Jim Harbaugh era as the 49ers run off one of their better head coaches.

With the University of Michigan prepared to break the bank and make Harbaugh the highest paid coach in either the NFL or college, reports continue to link the former Stanford head coach with his alma mater.
