Have you ever seen such a contrast in paths to reach the Superbowl. Seattle had the easiest schedule of any NFL team, they 'earned' the 1st round bye by playing 9 regular season games against teams with double digit losses. They only had to play wild card teams in the playoffs at home.(Yes I know, one of those teams were our Skins but facts are facts we weren't one of the elite teams this year, they are all in the AFC). Including the playoffs, Seattle has only played 7 teams with winning records. Pittsburg on the other hand, has played 11 teams with wining records including the number 1, 2 and 3 seeds in the AFC, all on the road. I'm not saying Seattle did anything wrong, you don't control your schedule. However, they have had the easiest path to the Superbowl that I can remember. It does get a little harder for them, their opponent won't have to travel across the country to the 'pit of rain and suicide' and Seattle won't have their loud (extremely low class, but loud) fans. They do however get to play the 6th seed from the AFC. If by some miracle, they pull off an upset of the Steelers, they will have to have had the easiest path to a championship never playing any seed higher than a #5. I'm obviously not alone in my thinking, Vegas has them a, #1 seed, a 3.5 point underdog against a #6 seed. So give the 3.5 pts, in fact give 13.5 pts and laugh all the way to the bank!
