Seattle Seahawks finally get second road playoff win after 29-year wait

Seattle Seahawks finally get second road playoff win after 29-year wait

Hyped by on January 7, 2013 Website:

Prior to their 24-14 win over the Washington Redskins last night, the Seattle Seahawks had one of the longest droughts when it came to winning a playoff game on the road. Last night’s win in Washington was the Seahawks first road playoff win since December 31, 1983 when they defeated the Miami Dolphins 27-20 in Miami (and it was only their second road playoff win in franchise history).

Seattle will be one of four road teams when the second round of the 2012 NFL playoffs begin with four games this weekend. The Seahawks will be looking for their third road playoff win in their history, while the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens will each be looking for road playoff win number eight in their histories (since 1966). The fourth road team this weekend, the Houston Texans, have never won a road playoff game.

Here’s a look at how many road playoff games have been won by each of the 32 NFL teams:
