News now! Packers suffer heartbreak in overtime

SEATTLE–Heartbreak struck the Packers in CenturyLink Field again, as the Seahawks rallied to defeat the Packers, 28-22, in overtime on Sunday.

The Seahawks won the overtime coin toss, elected to receive and began to move in small chunks out of the shadow of their own end zone. Russell Wilson faced a third-and-7 at his 30 and Wilson lobbed a deep ball to Doug Baldwin down the right sideline, a 35-yard gain that left the Seahawks at the Packers 35.

On the next play, Wilson hit Jermaine Kearse for 35 yards and the game-winning touchdown.

News now! Seahawks rally, Crosby sends game into OT

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on January 18, 2015 – 5:20 pm

150118-in-game-updates-4e-300SEATTLE–The Seahawks rallied from a 16-0 halftime deficit to send today’s NFC title game into overtime at CenturyLink Field, 22-22.

A 10-play, 57-yard drive early in the fourth quarter, which Mason Crosby capped with a 48-yard field goal, gave the Packers breathing room and a 19-7 lead. The drive also took 5:02 off the clock and left the Seahawks in panic mode, which is not their style of football.

Seattle began moving down the field, as time ticked away. On third-and-6, Marshawn Lynch bulldozed for 9 yards across midfield. A sack and an incompletion left the Seahawks to face a critical third-and-15. Russell Wilson threw incomplete and the Seahawks were forced to punt.

The Packers took possession with 6:53 to kill, and right away they turned to their running game. Two runs left third-and-4. Aaron Rodgers’ pass was dropped by Andrew Quarless and the Packers had to punt. Seattle had the ball near midfield.

On the next play, Wilson’s pass bounced out of his receiver’s hands and into the hands of Morgan Burnett, the Packers’ fourth interception of the day.

The next time the Seahawks had the ball, Wilson hit Marshawn Lynch with a pass that carried to the 9-yard line. On third-and-goal from the 1, Wilson scored and the Packers’ lead was cut to 19-14 with 2:09 to play.

Lightning struck the Packers when the Seahawks recovered their onside kick.

Wilson ran for 15 yards just outside the 2-minute warning. From the Packers 33, Wilson threw to Luke Wilson for a first down at the 24. From there, Lynch went the distance. Wilson threw a pop up for a 2-point conversion and a 3-point lead, 22-19, with 1:25 to play.

The NFC title and a trip to the Super Bowl rested on Rodgers’ shoulders and gimpy leg.

From the Packers 22, Rodgers threw to Jordy Nelson for a first down at the 36. A short pass to Randall Cobb crossed midfield. Rodgers scrambled for a first down inside the Seattle 40 and the Packers were in field goal range.

Rodgers faced third-and-10 from the Seahawks 36. A short pass to Nelson put the game on Crosby’s right leg. Crosby had already booted four field goals in four tries. This kick would come from 48 and Crosby nailed it.

The two teams were headed for overtime.

News now! Packers quarter away from Super Bowl

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on January 18, 2015 – 4:22 pm

Packers LB Clay Matthews sack Seahawks QB Russell WilsonSEATTLE–The Packers took a 16-7 lead into the fourth quarter of today’s NFC title game in CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks began a drive at their 22-yard line early in the third quarter. They crossed midfield in four plays and had a first down at the Packers 39. That’s when Clay Matthews burst through the line and sacked Russell Wilson for a 15-yard loss but, on third-and-19, Wilson found Doug Baldwin for 29 yards to the Packers 19.

Two plays left Wilson facing third-and-10 and Wilson appeared to drop it into Marshawn Lynch’s hands, but Sam Barrington stripped it and the Seahawks were left to kick a field goal, or so everyone thought. Coach Pete Carroll responded with a bold decision, as holder Jon Ryan threw to backup lineman Garry Gilliam for a 19-yard touchdown with 4:44 to play, 16-7.

News now! Packers have three INTs, 16-0 lead at half

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 18, 2015 – 3:35 pm

Packers CB Sam Shields intercepts Seahawks QB Russell Wilson

SEATTLE — The Packers defense got its second and third interceptions of the game in the second quarter and took a 16-0 lead into halftime over the Seahawks in the NFC Championship on Sunday at CenturyLink Field.

The Packers defense started the second quarter with a three-and-out, helped in part by a false start penalty on the Seahawks on first down. The ensuing punt was returned by DB Micah Hyde 29 yards to the Seattle 33.

The Packers only could add another field goal, though. An illegal hands to the face penalty on Seahawks DE Cliff Avril on third-and-13 gave the Packers a first down at the Seattle 31, but then three running plays — two by RB Eddie Lacy, one by WR Randall Cobb — came up one yard short of another first down, and the Packers settled for K Mason Crosby’s third field goal of the game. His 40-yarder made it 16-0 with 9:37 left in the first half.

The Packers defense got the ball right back, as rookie S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix intercepted QB Russell Wilson’s deep ball for WR Jermaine Kearse. It was Clinton-Dix’s second INT of the game. His long return was wiped out, though, by a blindside block penalty on LB Clay Matthews, who took out Wilson on the return.

The Seahawks returned the favor with an interception three plays later, though, as QB Aaron Rodgers was picked off by CB Byron Maxwell, giving Seattle the ball with just over 8 minutes left in the half.

Seattle got its first first down of the game on a 14-yard run by Lynch, and Lynch converted on third-and-1 to get the Seahawks into scoring range. A 14-yard pass to WR Ricardo Lockette on third-and-7 gave the Seahawks a first down on the 20, but on third-and-8, CB Sam Shields intercepted Wilson’s lob pass for Kearse, and the Packers took over again.

Green Bay went nowhere, punting the ball back to Seattle with 35 seconds left in the half. The Packers defense held and that ended the half.

Plenty of reason to be confident

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on January 18, 2015 – 3:19 pm

Ask Vic Halftime

Marcel from Bamberg, Germany

I know there’s plenty of football left to be played, but I like what I see. The defense is playing playoff football, Rodgers is looking good and the offensive line is just outstanding.

And Eddie Lacy is pounding.

J.D. from Evansville, IN

Vic, I don’t want to chortle …

Then don’t.

D.J. from Los Angeles, CA

Um, underdog who?

That’s chortling.

Dan from New Berlin, WI

Second quarter is starting. Is the 12th man losing its spirit?

Not at all.

George from Los Fresnos, TX

Vic, where did the up-tempo, no-huddle go?

The Seahawks ran six plays in the first quarter. You don’t like time of possession?

Jon from Bloomfield, NJ

Maybe our fans should stop denigrating fans until we can fill Lambeau the way these guys filled CenturyLink. I don’t see a single cheesehead in some of these camera shots.

I see only a few.

Rick from Appleton, WI

Vic, teams that hit don’t like to be hit. Green Bay is doing all the hitting.

And Lacy is doing all of the pounding.

Tony from Truckee, CA

I hate playing scared. Third-and-three and we don’t pass it. It feels like we are afraid of the pass. Same can be said for short-yardage touchdown opportunities. Thank goodness for our defense.

I’m speechless.

Jesse from Vail, CO

Eddie Lacy is a beast.

Thank you.

Julie from Omaha, NE

Vic, all week it was Seahawks. I started to feel defeated. After reading your articles, I kept my faith. I believe, Vic. I just wanted to thank you.

I felt confident all week.

News now! Packers take 13-0 lead into second quarter

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on January 18, 2015 – 2:49 pm

150118-in-game-updates-1b-300SEATTLE–Two Mason Crosby field goals and an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass to Randall Cobb staked the Packers to a 13-0 lead over the Seahawks heading into the second quarter of Sunday’s NFC title game in CenturyLink Field.

Seattle won the coin toss and elected to defer its choice; Green Bay received the opening kickoff and began its first possession at its 20-yard line. On third-and-one, Eddie Lacy gained 13 yards to the Packers 42.

A 7-yard completion from Aaron Rodgers to Davante Adams moved the sticks, again, and a short toss to Cobb resulted in a 14-yard gain to the Seattle 29. On third-and-10, however, Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman made a sparkling interception in the end zone of a pass intended for Adams.

It was on Seattle’s third offensive play that lightning struck for the Packers. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix intercepted a Russell Wilson pass that deflected off the receiver’s hands. Following a taunting penalty against the Packers, the Packers put the ball in play at the Seahawks 19-yard line.

A Rodgers pass to Richard Rodgers moved the ball to the 7-yard line. Lacy then bulldozed to the 1. John Kuhn was ruled to have scored on the next play, but review reversed the call and placed the ball inside the 1. Lacy was stopped on the next play and Crosby booted an 18-yard field goal with 8:07 to play in the first quarter, 3-0.

On the ensuing kickoff, Seattle’s Doug Baldwin fumbled and the Packers recovered at the Seattle 23. Brad Jones forced the fumble and Morgan Burnett recovered.

Lacy ran for 7 yards and then Lacy plowed to the 7, first and goal. On third-and-goal from the 6, Rodgers threw to Cobb at the 1, which brought Crosby back onto the field, 6-0 with 5:07 to play.

Following a Seattle three-and-out, the Packers took possession near midfield. An 11-yard completion to Richard Rodgers moved the sticks at the Seattle 18. Lacy then ran for 5 to the 13, and Rodgers threw to Cobb for a touchdown that staked the Packers to a 13-0 lead with no time remaining in the quarter.

The Seahawks ran just six offensive plays in the first quarter.
