After a commute that had about everything except me putting my hand between two “pillows,” we’re here in previously snowy, then wet, now dry New Jersey.
The Seahawks need some help from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to wrap things up today. They also need a win of their own, which I don’t think should be much of a problem (I picked a 35-17 win in the paper). By game time, the weather will be cool and windy, but dry.
In today’s story for the paper, I outlined everything going on with the playoff scenarios, plus talked about the game.
