AFC-NFC Championship weekend

Seahawks-W-Packers (28-22)

A super comeback by Seattle gets them back to the Super Bowl.  Outplayed for 55-minutes, quarterback Russell Wilson engineers 3-TD drives on the final 3-possessions, as the Seahawks win in overtime.  They trailed 19-7 late in the 4th quarter, but a fake field goal TD pass from punter John Ryan to a backup lineman got them back in the game.  An onside kick fumble, recovered by the Seahawks, led to another TD from Wilson.  And then Wilson drove the team to a go ahead touchdown with Marshawn Lynch scoring to send it to overtime.  Wilson hit a TD pass to Jermaine Kearse in overtime, punched the Seattle ticket to the Super Bowl in Arizona.  Wilson had a horrific first half (1-8) with 3-interceptions; his team had 7-penalties in the opening half.  Green Bay dominated, getting to the goal line three times early, but not scoring.  Richard Sherman picked off a pass in the end zone on the first drive, and Mike McCarthy went for field goals at the Seattle 1-and-3 yard lines.  What could have been a (21-0) lead was only a (6-0) lead.  The second half saw the Seahawks take over, with Marshawn Lynch busting off big runs, and finishing with (157R).  The Seattle offense, held to 59-Yards in the lst half and (338) in the second half.  Green Bay had five takeaways, including 4-interceptions, but came away with the loss.  Rodgers was held to (197P) in the game.  Seattle has won 10-straight at home in the post season, and has won 26 of their last 28-at Century Link Field.
