Hardly given a chance entering their NFC Wildcard showdown with New Orleans, the Seahawks shocked the football world by dusting the Saints 41-36. Matt Hasselbeck rose to the occasion, airing it out for 272 yards and four touchdowns, but the real hero of the day was Marshawn Lynch. Lynch ripped off an incredible 67-yard touchdown run, shedding eight tackles and delivering an unforgettable stiff arm to Tracy Porter to seal the upset. The surprising result ended the Saints' bid at a repeat championship.
