The Seattle Seahawks’ road to home field advantage in the NFC hit a bump with Sunday’s 2-point loss in San Francisco.

But, Seattle can still guarantee they will be home for the playoffs with a win this Sunday at the New York Giants, plus a little help.

A Seattle win coupled with a San Francisco 49ers loss or tie at Tampa Bay AND a New Orleans Saints loss at St. Louis would give the Seahawks home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Even without a Saints loss, the Seahawks can win the NFC West and at least a first-round bye with a win and a 49ers loss or tie Sunday OR with a tie and a 49ers loss.
