As they seem to do time after time, the Seattle Seahawks pulled out another incredible win. No one thought the now defending Champions could play in a more exciting NFC Championship than the game last year against San Francisco, with the deep touchdown to wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, and the tip by Richard Sherman to win the game. Well, we were wrong.
Only this time, the tip came from Green Bay Packers tight end Brandon Bostick when he misplayed the Seahawks last-stitch-effort-onside-kick to go win the game. Seattle recovered the kick and took the lead. And almost identical to last year, Kearse caught a 35 yard game-winning/go-ahead touchdown for the Seahawks. So, after being down, 16-0 at halftime and 16-7 with just over two minutes left, the Seahawks still found a way to win.
Kearse had been beat up all day, with almost every pass that came his way being intercepted. When it mattered most with the game on the line, he came through again. Now the Seahawks move to the Super Bowl to face a New England Patriots squad that unhinged the Indianapolis Colts. Unlike last year, the Seahawks will face a proved Super Bowl quarterback in Tom Brady, who has five Super Bowl appearances (this will be his six) and he’s won every one that wasn’t against the New York Giants.
