SEATTLE, Wash. -

SEATTLE (AP) - Russell Wilson threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns, and the Seattle Seahawks became the first team to clinch a spot in the NFC playoffs with a 34-7 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Monday night.

More important than just wrapping up a spot in the postseason, the Seahawks (11-1) moved two games ahead on the rest of the NFC in the race for home-field advantage and now hold tiebreakers over New Orleans (9-3) and Carolina (9-3), the two closest pursuers.

Wilson was outstanding, picking apart the Saints' defense. He threw touchdown passes of 2 yards to Zach Miller and 4 yards to Doug Baldwin in the first half as Seattle built a 27-7 lead. He then added a pinball 8-yard TD pass to Derrick Coleman in the third quarter.

The seven points matched the fewest scored by the Saints since Sean Payton became coach in 2006.

If you're unfamiliar, I'll save you a Google search.  A simple, yet effectively funny joke.  Except the U.S. Navy doesn't see humor in the real-life version at all.
