Packers beat Seahawks to reach NFC title game


While the 49ers did dismantle the Packers earlier this season, expect a different type of game next Sunday. "I feel like we're going somewhere", Clowney told Silver. "If it were 4th-and-5 or 3 - we went through the whole discussion, but it winds up being a sack, unfortunately".

The Packers never gave the ball back to the Seahawks, getting two first downs and putting the game away.

There was a reason why Carroll chose to punt: He didn't like the odds of Seattle getting a first down, even with Russell Wilson at quarterback.

Aaron Rodgers completed 16 of 27 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns to Davante Adams, who had eight receptions for a franchise postseason-record 160 yards.

Lynch was signed off the street in late December after the Seahawks saw their top three running backs, Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny and C.J. The Seahawks had time and timeouts, and he has a strong defense.

Lack of diversity in National Football League coaching ranks ‘a serious cause for concern’
The Patriots have already lost a member of their coaching staff, with Judge moving to New Jersey to take charge of the Giants. Belichick gave a stunning recommendation to his former assistant coach and told the team that he is a worthy investment.

With Aaron Rodgers showing signs of wear, Aaron Jones put the offense on his back, finishing tied for the league lead in touchdowns from scrimmage (19). That is what this thing has felt like the whole time, the whole year, and it's an wonderful chemistry, and it's an awesome group, and the leadership and Bobby and K.J. and Russ and Duane Brown, who did an unbelievable thing today to play in this football game. I don't think they've lost a game since then.

Rodgers took care of the Seahawks from there. Think of it this way: Before punting, the Seahawks, trailing five points, needed to go down and get a touchdown.

The Seahawks aren't as talented as they have been in recent years.

Seahawks: head into the offseason, needing replenish their depth on the offensive line and on defense while Wilson remains in his prime. With so many of their fans going above-and-beyond to make sure fans can cheer on their team, it would be an ideal time for the "good Packers" to show up. The team that won the first meeting is 22-14 in the ensuing matchup, including 7-2 in conference title games, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
