The Seattle Seahawks pulled out the most improbable of wins in their NFC Championship tilt against Green Bay Packers. Down by two scores in the fourth quarter, the loudest sports venue in the world was as quiet as a mouse, throngs of 12th men were streaming out of CenturyLink as the defending Super Bowl Champions struggled against the Pack.

Time for the Seahawks to show the world why they are Super Bowl champions and favorites to repeat!

"You have the belief these guys have in one another, there is nothing you can’t do," coach Pete Carroll said after an implausible comeback for a 28-22 victory over Green Bay in the NFC championship game Sunday.

Seattle trailed 19-7 with about four minutes remaining and had been ineffective on offense all game. 

Plagued by turnovers early, QB Russell Wilson and WR Doug Baldwin were the catalysts for the Seahawks late game heroics. Wilson, who tossed 4 INTs in the game, finally put a drive together with passes to Baldwin and Marshawn Lynch — who looked liked had scored a TD, but it was called back because he clearly stepped out of bounds. Wilson finished with a 1-yard scoring run to cut the lead to 19-14 with 2:09 left.

"The will and the drive of these men is unbelievable," Wilson said. "We always find a way to finish."

The Seahawks followed that TD with an offside kick that went high to Packers tight end Brandon Bostick, but it bounced off of his helmet to Seattle’s Chris Matthews who recovered it at the 50. The crowd, quiet since Seattle fell behind 16-0, came alive, and Lynch sped and powered his way to a 24-yard TD run. On the 2-point conversion, Wilson — about to be sacked — threw a desperate pass hauled in by Luke Willson to make it 22-19 with 1:25 remaining.

"Just making the plays at the end and keep believing," said Wilson, who was overwhelmed and sobbing after the game. "There was no doubt … we had no doubt as a team

The Packers tied the game on their following possession with a Mason Crosby field-goal only to lose the game in OT on a 35 yard TD by Jermaine Kearse from Wilson.

Just like Super Bowl 48, the Seahawks will try to defeat a future Hall of Famer quarterback to get to the Lombardy trophy; this time instead Peyton Manning is Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Since Russell Wilson joined the Seahawks three seasons ago, his team is 10-0 against Super Bowl winning quarterbacks.

Now the Seahawks face league bullies New England who undressed the Colts. Whether "Defalte-gate" was a contributing factor or not the Patriots have buried all opponents this season since their MNF loss to the Chiefs.

"I know we’ve had some ups and downs this year," Brady said, "but right now we’re up, baby, and we’re going to try to stay up for one more game."

This is a record setting post-season for Brady, Belichick and the Patriots.

  • Brady surpassed John Elway for most Super Bowls for a quarterback and tied defensive lineman Mike Lodish for most by any player.
  • Belichick tied Don Shula for most Super Bowls for a coach and broke a tie with Tom Landry with his 21st postseason win.
  • New England tied Dallas and Pittsburgh for most appearances in the big game with eight.

Tom Brady and Russell Wilson faced each other three years ago in Seattle with a 24-23 victory by the Seahawks. That afternoon the Patriots dominated most of the game, but a 14-point Seahawks rally in the fourth quarter gave the home team the win, with Wilson going for 293 yards & 3 scores and Brady with 395 yards 2 TDs & 2 INTs.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll served as the Patriots coach from 1997-99. He will be just the fourth coach to face a former team of his in the Super Bowl.

Underdogs have covered the spread in 10 of the last 13 Super Bowls, including Seattle’s last season against the Denver Broncos.
