Russell Wilson threw his fourth interception of the game with 5:04 left in the 4th quarter, and with Green Bay leading 19-7, the game felt over. But a strange thing happened — Morgan Burnett intercepted the pass, took a few steps and just took a knee. It is unclear why. He could have run for many more yards.
Then the Packers went three-and-out, quickly.
Seattle’s Russell Wilson, who was having arguably the worst game of his career, led the Seahawks down the field, ending in a touchdown run. Then, Seattle attempted an onside kick … and Green Bay’s Brandon Bostick jumped to make the catch, but couldn’t collect the ball.
Seattle recovered. The Seahawks drove down for a quick TD, with Marshawn Lynch setting off an earthquake (probably). The 2-point conversion was absurd, with Wilson throwing a lob pass, across the field … that somehow Luke Willson caught and scored on, capping the largest halftime deficit overcome in NFC Championship game history.
Green Bay’s Mason Crosby nailed a 48-yard field goal to send the game to overtime.
