The Seattle Seahawks punched their ticket to Super Bowl 49 in dramatic fashion with a 28-22 overtime win over the Green Bay Packers at CenturyLink Field. Seattle needed an onside kick and a fake field goal touchdown to overcome a 16-0 deficit and return to the Super Bowl for a second straight season. The Seahawks’ offense overcame five turnovers and capped the game with a winning 36-yard strike from Russell Wilson to Jermaine Kearse.
Wilson scored on a one-yard run with 2:09 remaining in the fourth quarter and got the ball back when Green Bay’s Brandon Bostick mishandled an onside kick. Marshawn Lynch scored a go-ahead touchdown on a 24-yard run four plays later. After the Packers forced overtime on a Mason Crosby field goal, Seattle put together a six-play, 87-yard drive in overtime that was culminated by Kearse’s touchdown.
Ross Tucker and Jon Ritchie broke down the game and assigned blame to a number of Green Bay players and coaches in Bostick, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Mike McCarthy, Morgan Burnett and Aaron Rodgers in this week’s Keystone Sports Network podcast.
