Seattle’s 41-36 victory against the New Orleans Saints has been called one of the biggest upsets in NFL playoff history.
As 11-point favorites, the Saints were favored to beat the Seahawks by the largest margin in league history. Despite a serious string of major injuries, no one expected a 7-9 Seattle outfit to turn the tables on a team that had beaten them 34-19 just seven weeks earlier.
