Seahawks 30, Browns 13

Seahawks back in playoffs again

SEATTLE — Not until Pete Carroll pulled everyone together after a fifth straight victory did the Seahawks find out they were bound for the postseason.

And the reaction was as expected. No overwhelming celebration. No special significant, even after a miserable start to the season.

It simply has become Seattle's standard.

"We're resilient," receiver Doug Baldwin said. "You can count us out. You can say what you want to about all of our players, but we're going to be consistently efficient at what we do."

Once again led by Baldwin and Russell Wilson, the Seahawks rolled past the Browns to wrap up a fourth consecutive berth in the NFC playoffs.

Wilson put together another elite day — 21-of-30 for 249 yards and three touchdowns — after a week where Cleveland coach Mike Pettine stirred debate by saying Wilson wasn't in the top tier of quarterbacks.
