EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — If everything works out right for the Seattle Seahawks, this weekend will be the dry run to MetLife Stadium.
With a little help, the Seahawks (11-2) will win the NFC West and nail down the No. 1 seed in the conference with a victory over the New York Giants (5-8) and losses by San Francisco and New Orleans.
If that happens, the road to the first outdoor Super Bowl in a cold weather city will go through Seattle, where the Seahawks have not lost this season. Quarterback Russell Wilson didn’t want to look that far down the road.
