One could argue that the four teams who emerged from the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs were the four best teams in the league all season long.

Seattle lived up to its reputation of providing the NFL’s best home field advantage as the Seahawks held off the New Orleans Saints 23-15. Fans registered a small, ground-moving earthquake when Marshawn Lynch rushed for the first of his two touchdowns on the day in the second quarter. Seattle will host this weekend’s NFC title game.

Making that trip to the Emerald City will be the rival San Francisco 49ers, who dominated Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers on the road 23-10. Anquan Boldin led the way with 8 catches for 136 yards. San Francisco and Seattle split their season series 1-1.

No matter who they lose, the New England Patriots keep rolling. Yesterday, they used the ground attack heavily in a 43-22 blowout win over the Indianapolis Colts. LeGarrette Blount carried 24 times for 166 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Setting up a 15th showdown against Brady, Peyton Manning picked up his first playoff win since 2009 after the Broncos defeated the division rival San Diego Chargers 24-17. Manning completed 25-of-36 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns in the win. The Patriots and Broncos have the early game Sunday in Denver.

With the Divisional Round now out of the way, take a look at some of the football shoes that hit the field in today’s NFL Watch.
