The Seahawks are back in the postseason, so 710 ESPN Seattle is bringing back a playoff tradition: the Playoff Roundtable.

Fluker expected to play vs Cowboys, Sweezy will be gameday decision

Every day (excluding holidays) leading up to each Seahawks playoff game, a different trio of 710 ESPN Seattle hosts will take the airwaves from 2 to 3 p.m. to discuss everything you need to know.

We kicked things off on Monday with Tom Wassell, Danny O’Neil and former Seahawks quarterback Jake Heaps looking at Saturday night’s first-round game between the Hawks and Cowboys. You can listen to the full hour embedded in this post, or download the podcast at this link.

Here’s a breakdown of what the three hosts covered:

• Are you shocked the Seahawks made the playoffs and finished the regular season at 10-6?

• Why Dallas was the best option for the Seahawks to play in the wild-card round.

• How the hype around the Cowboys being “America’s Team” makes Saturday an opportunity for the Seahawks to shine.

• Running back matchup: Seattle’s Chris Carson vs. Dallas’ Ezekiel Elliot
