Why did the Seahawks win the NFC title?

The Seahawks’ 24-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday was their second win in a row and their fourth in a week, the last of which came in a 29-24 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 10.

The Seahawks are in the midst of a hot streak, going 9-1 since the Week 8 bye.

The last time they won a game in October was the season-opening 28-27 win over Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1.

The win was also the Seahawks’ first since defeating the Seattle Seahawks 24-10 on Sept. 12, 2013, at CenturyLink Field.

Seattle is 7-0 against NFC West opponents since Week 8, the first time the Seahawks have beaten a division opponent.

This marks the first win over a division foe since Seattle beat the Los Angeles Rams 28-14 in Week 14 of last season.

The Seahawks also beat the Arizona Cardinals 38-21 on Oct. 31.

The win means Seattle now has three straight wins against division opponents.

The next four meetings between the Seahawks and division opponents will be played at Centurylink Field, home of the Seattle Sounders FC.
