It’s quite the list. But, the win puts Seattle in a good position with a two-game cushion. Even though its hope at a division championship are out the window with the Rams securing it for the second consecutive season, the Seahawks can still clinch a playoff berth with a victory over the 49ers in Week 15 action. Seattle will close out the season with a tough matchup against the Chiefs and a game against the lowly Cardinals.The Vikings, despite the loss, are also hopefuls for the final playoff spot. Because of the results from Week 14, Minnesota has to win at least two of its last three games, which seems possible with contests against Miami and Detroit on its schedule. The Vikings will also have to face the Bears, who just topped the Rams to knock them out of first place. Wilson is 20-8 in the final month of the regular season since 2012, second only to Tom Brady, and he has a 103.3 passer rating, which is the best in the NFL. So, when the Vikings visited CenturyLink Field for “Monday Night Football” to cap off an exhilarating Week 14, we were all expecting just a little bit more excitement. Seattle held the visiting Minnesota squad to a touchdown and effectively shut down two of the team’s biggest weapons for most of the game. Quarterback Kirk Cousins rarely had a chance to get the Vikings passing attack going and when he did, the Seahawks were there. And there again.

There wasn’t a lot of offense in this game, despite it sporting multiple big play makers including Cousins, Vikings receivers Thielen and Stefon Diggs as well as Wilson.OKAY, RUSS! @DangeRussWilson goes 40 yards on an incredible scramble! #Seahawks📺: #MINvsSEA on ESPN pic.twitter.com/u0LuuaaWrZ— NFL (@NFL) December 11, 2018They did. It was the team’s only successful red-zone score and it came at the perfect time. Seattle cemented its lead and followed it up with a fumble recovery for another score.#SEAHAWKS!The @Seahawks return the Cousins fumble for SIX!📺: #MINvsSEA on ESPN pic.twitter.com/9iM34a9rrK— NFL (@NFL) December 11, 2018But, the Seahawks weren’t the only ones who added to the board late. The Vikings also took advantage of a play that, quite frankly, the Seahawks defense gave up on. It wasn’t because of a lack of effort, though, as it seemed Cousins was beyond the line of scrimmage when he completed a touchdown pass to Dalvin Cook in the final two minutes. The Vikings add a late TD to get on the board. #SKOL📺: #MINvsSEA on ESPN pic.twitter.com/rG9cGoyqml— NFL (@NFL) December 11, 2018When the Vikings were on defense, they pressured Wilson when he reached the red zone and held the Seahawks to field goals after two big sacks and then picked off the four-time Pro Bowl player on the 1-yard line. Seattle finished one of four in the red zone, and only completed 3-of-11 third-down attempts.Russell Wilson tries to throw it away but @EricKendricks54 is there to pick it off! #SKOL📺: #MINvsSEA on ESPN pic.twitter.com/2ciDbzoqVN— NFL (@NFL) December 11, 2018The biggest concern the Seahawks faced when Minnesota’s offense took the field was the pass. The regression in Seattle’s own pass defense allowed Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to complete all 14 of his first-half pass attempts and 49ers third-string quarterback Nick Mullens to rack up over 400 passing yards. This time, the Seahawks were up against a play caller with one of the the best receiver duos in the league. But, that didn’t seem to be a problem. Seattle held Cousins to 208 passing yards, and his top targets Thielen and Diggs, combined for nine catches. The Seahawks used big plays from middle linebacker Bobby Wagner to stun the Vikings.BLOCKED. @BWagz. 💪💪💪📺: #MINvsSEA on ESPN pic.twitter.com/b7aB6qAJxO— NFL (@NFL) December 11, 2018The No. 5 Seahawks (8-5) and the No. 6 Vikings (6-6-1) held on to those two spots with plenty of other teams in the hunt, including the Panthers (6-7), Eagles (6-7), Redskins (6-7), Packers (5-7-1) and Buccaneers (5-8).
