Super Bowl champions Seattle earned a chance at an NFL title repeat on Sunday with a stunning 28-22 overtime playoff triumph over the Green Bay Packers.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson shook off four interceptions and hit Jermaine Kearse with a game-winning 35-yard touchdown pass on the opening possession of the extra period to give Seattle the victory in the National Football Conference title game.
The Seahawks, who trailed 16-0 at halftime and 19-7 early in the fourth quarter, scored two touchdowns in less than a minute in the final period of regulation in their remarkable rally.
A year after humbling Denver in last season’s Super Bowl they will return to the NFL’s championship showcase in suburban Phoenix, Arizona, on February 1.
Seattle will play the winner of the American Football Conference championship tilt between the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts.
