Red-zone scoring was not a strength of the Seahawks’ offense during the regular season. They converted a little over 46 percent of their trips inside the 20-yard line into touchdowns, which ranked 27th in the NFL.
It was much better last week against Detroit, one of several things Seattle did well in its wild-card win. The Seahawks were 3 of 4 in the red zone, with the final touchdown coming on a 13-yard pass in the fourth quarter that Jermaine Kearse may have caught had Doug Baldwin not snagged it first.
