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.
