    On Deck will be here all season to provide you with everything you need to know (and a few things you don't) about every postseason game during the 2015 season.

    The Teams: For a pretty decent stretch this season, it seemed as though the Seahawks reign of terror in the NFL was coming to an end, at least for one season. But no such luck for the rest of the league, as they're now arguably the best team going right now as the postseason begins despite going just 10-6 in the regular season to earn a Wild Card spot out of the NFC West.

    Past Meetings: The Seahawks are 9-5 all-time against the Vikings, with their last meeting coming a month ago today in Minnesota, a game the Seahawks won going away, 38-7.

    Who's Hot: The Seahawks are seriously scary right now. It all starts with Russell Wilson, who threw for 197 yards and three touchdowns in last week's drubbing of the NFC West champion Cardinals. Former Cowboys castoff Christine Michael went back to his old team and immediately became a star, rushing for 102 yards on 17 carries last week.

    The Vikings defense was the star in Sunday's win over the Packers, but Adrian Peterson had a pretty nice day too to cap off his NFL rushing champ season with a hard-earned 67 yards on the ground to go with a touchdown.

    Who's Not: The Packers' running game has been an utter disaster, and that continued on Sunday as Eddie Lacy had 13 carries for just 34 yards and James Starks had eight carries for 24 yards.

    Teddy Bridgewater wasn't very good on Sunday, going 10-for-19 for 99 yards and an interception, but he didn't lose the game, so there's that.
