That way Carolina/New Orleans/Dallas/Philadelphia/Detroit plays Seattle in the Divisional. More time for our team to heal up.
I don't think you understand how this works.
If we win as the 5th seed, we still play Seattle unless the 6th seed wins. There is no way Dallas/Philly/Detroit play Seattle if we win as a wild card. Only New Orleans or Carolina could play Seattle instead of us, if they win as a wild card and we're the 5th seed.
The 1st seed plays the worst seed remaining after the wild card round. If we beat the 4th as a 5th, but the 3rd wins, we still play Seattle. If we win as a 6th, we play Seattle no matter what.
