The Seahawks left for Washington, D.C., on Friday afternoon, their route to the airport lined by fans. Estimated time of arrival: 11 p.m. Eastern, giving the Seahawks a full day's head start on the team's last road playoff victory.
That rare victory was on Dec. 31, 1983, when a flight delay stalled the Seahawks' trip to Miami to the point the team didn't arrive at its hotel until after midnight. Half a day later, the Seahawks took the field as a road-weary underdog and upset the Dolphins, scoring 10 points in a 22-second span in the fourth quarter for a 27-20 victory in the franchise's first road playoff game.
Twenty-nine years later, it remains the only time the Seahawks have won on the road in the postseason.
