"That crowd was crazy. They were great," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "And I'm so thrilled we were able to share it with them. They deserve a playoff team and they got it."
Seattle will likely be the No. 5 seed in the NFC. There remains a slight chance of winning the NFC West if the Seahawks beat St. Louis in the season finale and Arizona can upset the 49ers in San Francisco.
