As The Ringer’s Kevin Clark often says, “the Seattle Seahawks have never played in a normal football game.” That trend continued at Lambeau Field this past Sunday as Russell Wilson willed his team back from a 21-3 halftime deficit to pull within 5 points in a game that was full of highlights, lowlights, and NFL refs doing their best to get in the way.
But a repeat of 2014 this was not. Green Bay Packers fans could finally unclench their fists in the final minute as Aaron Rodgers took a knee and the Green Bay Packers walked away victorious, having outlasted Seattle to the tune of 28-23.
Their ticket to an NFC Championship showdown in San Francisco has been punched. Actually, it’s about 40 miles outside of San Francisco, but whatever.
On today’s show, we’ll take our still-racing pulse, and break down our key observations from the game, including:
- Increased third down efficiency
- Midseason acquisitions stepping up
- The thin yellow line
- and more!
