Packers Survive Seattle Rally, Advance to NFC Title Game

Packers Survive Seattle Rally, Advance to NFC Title Game

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers found his favorite target, wide receiver Davante Adams, eight times for 160 yards and two touchdowns in Green Bay’s 28-23 Divisional Round win over Seattle Sunday night. 

Green Bay led at halftime 21-3, then watched former Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Russell Wilson lead the Seahawks on a comeback attempt, scoring three straight TD’s in the second half.

Wilson was sacked five times – two each by Preston and Za’Darius Smith.  Preston Smith’s sack forced a punt just before the two-minute warning, and Seattle didn’t get the ball back.

Aaron Jones rushed for 62 yards and scored Green Bay’s other two touchdowns. 

The victory puts the Packers in the NFC title game against the San Francisco 49ers – a team that beat Green Bay handily during the regular season.
