When the Seattle Seahawks played against the Green Bay Packers in last Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, even up to four minutes before the end of the fourth quarter, Hawks fans felt like underdogs, struggling against incredible odds. Before the game ended, with the Seahawks trailing 19-7, many fans left Century Link
Field, fearing the likelihood of the Seahawks losing this game and ending their chances of going back to the Super Bowl for the second year in a row. Those same fans were glaring at the no-reentry sign above the doors they had exited, when, two minutes before the end of the game, Marshawn Lynch made a 24-yard touchdown which was later followed by a two point conversion made by Russell Wilson and Luke Wilson.
Through the first and second quarters the Seahawks had struggled, trailing behind the Packers. The chances of the Seahawks continuing their winning streak dropped to below 0.1 percent after Russell Wilson threw two faulty passes. It was not until the third quarter when the Seahawks began to make a comeback, even with the touchdown which put the game in overtime. In the end, the Seahawks won a close game against the Packers with a final score of 28-22.
“We had no doubt as a team. I am honored to be on this team and I am going to the Super Bowl again,” said Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson during his after-game winner’s interview.
“You don’t win a game in the first half,” said wide receiver Douglas Baldwin, “you come out and you win a game in the second half.”
With the Seahawks now going back to the Super Bowl for a second time in a row, the question continues to be thrown around: will they do it again? The chances for the Seattle Seahawks to win for the second time are looking to be fair, but no matter how the game goes, it’s unlikely anyone will be leaving the stadium early.
The 2015 Super Bowl will broadcast on Feb. 1. Both the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots will be playing in the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
