NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME: Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks – VIDEO (Update: Packers 22 – Seahawks 28)(Update: Seattle Wins in OT!!!)
ARE YOU READY FOR SOME CHAMPIONSHIP FOOTBALL!!!
NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME: THE GREEN BAY PACKERS VS. THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
It is Championship Sunday in the NFL, the winner earns the rights to play in the Super Bowl, the loser goes home and spends an entire off season wondering what if. The Packers come into the northwest with a wounded QB Aaron Rodgers and his calf issue against the NFL’s number one defense. The two played each other in week one, the Seahawks destroyed the Packers, 36-16, when Seattle was hardly playing their best football. During the final 6 games of the season, where the Seahawks went 6-0, giving up an average of 6.5 points.
It is hard to believe that an injured Aaron Rodgers is going to go into Seattle, away from the friendly confines of the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field and defeat the defending Super Bowl champions. With the rain, the calf injury to Rodgers, the 12th man and more importantly, the Legion of Boom, I see the Seahawks returning to defend their title. I cannot see Aaron Rodgers extending plays with his legs against this defense without resulting in dire consequences. Many pundits say it will be a close game, I am not so sure about that. This one could snow ball.
UPDATE I: Seahawks give Packers a gift 3 points on Russell Wilson interception. After Seattle CB Richard Sherman had intercepted Rodgers in the end zone.
UPDATE II: Seahawks give the Packers another gift turn over as they fumbled on the kickoff return. However, Green Bay failed to cash in again in the red zone and only came away with another FG. Seattle keeps this up and they will blow this game. In the beginning of this game, it appears that Seattle’s head is no where in the game.
UPDATE III: Touchdown Packers! Sorry, but if the Seahawks are not going to rush the QB and play like the Dallas Cowboy defense, they will get picked a part and destroyed by QB Aaron Rodgers. Hey Seahawks, ever heard of a blitz?
UPDATE IV: Add another FG to the Packers score. Crosby is not 3 for 3. The Seahawks can thank their lucky stars the score is not 24 to zero that this point. although the way they are playing today, it might just be a matter of time before that is the case. Seattle has yet to even show up to the game. Talk about over-confident.
UPDATE V: Another turnover for the Seahawks, their 3rd of the game. UNREAL, the Seahawks are panicking and it is only the first half. Good grief, Seattle is totally out of sorts.
UPDATE VI: HALF TIME – WHAT A TERRIBLE GAME SO FAR, MIGHT AS WELL CALL IT THE TURNOVER BOWL.
The Seattle Seahawk offense has been offensive. Russell Wilson has actually thrown more interceptions than completions in the first half. His QB rating is 0, zero, nada, nien. What a disaster. Rodgers is hardly burning it up himself, but when your counterpart has a QB rating of 0.0, you look all world.
UPDATE VII: Seattle finally scores on a fake FG, throw for a TD (VIDEO). This may be just the thing that was needed for Seattle to light a fire under them and change the momentum in the game. Then again, maybe not. The Seattle offense has just been atrocious today. The only way the Seahawks are going to pull this game off is on special teams and defense.
UPDATE VIII: Yet another GB field goal give the Packers a 12 point lead. It is hard to imagine that the Seahawks could score 2 TD’s in the 4th quarter after having done butkis for the entire game.
UPDATE IX: It may be a little too late … Seahawks score on a Wilson TD run (VIDEO)
UPDATE X: WOW… UNREAL, THE SEAHAWKS KICK AN ONSIDE KICK AND RECOVER THE BALL, THEY HAVE LIFE.
UPDATE XI: Are you kidding me … SEAHAWKS score a TD as Marshawn Lynch 24 yards for a score and they get the 2 point conversion. However, they have left 1:25 to GB.
UPDATE XII: Packers kick FG with 14 seconds left to tie the game. Wondering why Kam Chancellor did not leap the pile to block the FG attempt.
We are headed to OT. Seattle wins the toss and they will receive the ball to start overtime.
UPDATE XIII: ITS OVER … UNBELIEVABLE, SEAHAWKS WIN IN OT … Jermaine Kearse Pass From Russell Wilson for 35 Yards for the TD!!!
I can’t even imagine how badly the Packers are kicking themselves. The Seahawks had done nothing until about 3.30 minutes left in the 4th quarter. Then, the GB Packers could not stop them.
