Yates led Texans to 31-10 victory over Andy Dalton and Bengals. ... Griffin (102.4) and Wilson (100) had best single-season rookie passer ratings in NFL history. Wilson's rating was also the best overall in Seahawks history, bettering Matt Hasselbeck's 98.2 in 2005 when Seattle reached Super Bowl. ... Wilson threw 26 TD passes, tying Peyton Manning's NFL rookie record set in 1998. He was first rookie QB in league history to win all eight home games. Griffin set league mark for yards rushing by rookie QB (815) and is only player in NFL history to rush for 750-plus yards and have passer rating of 100 or better. ...

Redskins were second at 52.2 percent. ... Seattle was one of two teams without red zone giveaway this season. ... Seahawks were No. 1 in league in scoring defense, allowing 15.3 points per game. They allowed NFL-low 23 touchdown drives, none shorter than 40 yards. ... Opposing QBs had NFL-low 67.7 passer rating vs. Seattle defense inside 30-yard line. ...

Seattle has just 60 games of combined playoff experience, fewest of 12 teams in postseason. Cincinnati, Minnesota and Washington are next on list, all with 68. ... Seahawks CB Brandon Browner returns from four-game suspension for using banned substance. With CB Richard Sherman winning appeal of similar four-game suspension, the Seahawks will have both starting CBs available for postseason. ... Seattle WR Sidney Rice had zero catches in season finale and was targeted just once. It was first time this season he was shut out and second time since joining Seahawks before 2011 season he went without catch; other was last season against Washington. ... DE Chris Clemons led Seattle with 11 1-2 sacks, his third consecutive season with 11 or more, and DE Bruce Irvin led NFL rookies with eight sacks. ... Seahawks had five players selected to Pro Bowl: Lynch, T Russell Okung, S Earl Thomas, C Max Unger and KR Leon Washington. ...
