Super Seahawks stun Packers with late comeback

(FOX19) -

The Seattle Seahawks scored three touchdowns in the final three minutes of regulation and overtime to beat the Green Bay Packers and advance to a second consecutive Super Bowl.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, who had thrown four interceptions the first three and a half quarters, led three touchdown drives to erase a 19-7 deficit late in the fourth quarter to beat the Packers 28-22 in overtime.

"The fight, the fight, the relentless fight," said a tearful Wilson to FOX Sports after the game. "Three mins left in the game, four interceptions, guys just kept playing. Just honored, man. Just blessed to be on this team."

Trailing by 12 points with less than three minutes, Wilson scored a rushing touchdown to bring Seattle within 19-14. After recovering an onside kick, Wilson led a go-ahead touchdown drive that Marshawn Lynch finished off with a TD run. The Packers rallied in the final minute to kick a game tying field goal to force overtime. But, Wilson connected with Jermaine Kearse on a 35-yard touchdown to clinch the NFC Championship and a return trip to the Super Bowl.

"Just making the plays at the end," added Wilson. "Keep believing. Just keep making plays and keep believing."

Wilson is now 10-0 all time against Super Bowl winning quarterbacks, including the playoffs.

The defending Super Bowl champions will play the AFC winner Sunday February 1st in Super Bowl 49 in Arizona.
