“Going into these playoffs, I know I’m going to probably have the heaviest workload I’ve had all season,” Elliott said.
“It’s great getting fresh and ready going into the last stretch of the season and ready for whatever they throw at me.
“It’s hard to make the playoffs in the NFL, that makes the moment that much more important.
“I live for these moments. I love it.
“I can’t wait to go out there and compete on Saturday night. I think this team is ready.”
The Seahawks came second in the NFC West, but did finish the year with the same record as the Cowboys (10-6) after winning their last two games of the regular season.
Seattle missed out on a Wild Card spot last year and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is ecstatic to have bounced back this season.
“My whole mindset was to never miss it again,” Wilson said.
“You always want to have a chance. Whenever you get to December, you want to have a chance to make it. I think that’s kind of always been my thought is give ourselves a great chance to go where we want to go, and that’s to win the whole thing.
“I think at the end of the day, we’ve been able to do that extremely, extremely well. Even last year when we didn’t make it, we still had a chance, a really, really close chance. Unfortunately, we didn’t make it last year, but every year’s a new year.
“The great thing about this team is the fact that everybody was telling us we couldn’t. I think that it shows the will of this team.
“It shows the heart of this team and it shows the mindset of this team to be able to think the way that you want to think and go the places that you want to go.”
Many experts favour the Seahawks to take the victory when they face off against the Cowboys on Saturday.
