If this is Matt Hasselbeck’s last game in Qwest Field, he’s going out in style.
The Seahawks lead 34-20 late in the third quarter, largely because of Matt Hasselbeck’s pinpoint passing. The Seahawks out-scored the Saints 10-0 in the third quarter following Hasselbeck’s 38-yard strike to Mike Williams and an Olindo Mare field goal.
The amazing part is Seattle could easily be leading by more. A pair of drops and a delay of game penalty on an aborted field goal attempt potentially took points off the board.
Seattle stands 15 long minutes away from one of the biggest Wild Card weekend upsets in recent memory.
Only Drew Brees stands in their way. (Gulp)
