NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take the under. According to latest NFL trends, Seattle is 1-6 Under last 7 vs. NFC. Minnesota is 5-1 Under last 6 on fieldturf. Minnesota has managed to average 23 points per game with a limited offense. Other than Percy Harvin, they really have no playmakers in the passing game and Christian Ponder is an erratic passer who just needs to manage the game. They are 27th in passing and rely heavily on Adrian Peterson and their running game. Seattle’s Russell Wilson is even more of a game-manager as a rookie. The Seahawks are 31st in the NFL in passing yards per game (171) but their defense has been strong all season. They allow just 85 yards per game on the ground, which is a great sign for the Under since the Vikings are primarily a running football team.
