He offers advice to young players and mentions taking care of their "chicken", which we can infer means money if we use context clues. Lynch noted, per The Seattle Times. The Packers mostly kept Rodgers much better protected, though.

Critical receptions by Davante Adams, who finished with 160 receiving yards, extended Green Bay's drive and Seattle's window slowly closed.

"I think this is the start of this team", said Carroll.

Do the Seahawks, who had momentum in the second half, and their fans have a gripe?

The defense kept Seattle out of the end zone giving up only a field goal before the break.


But on the next play, Malik Turner dropped a perfectly thrown pass at about midfield.

The second-best (reasonable) scenario was a Packers three-and-out, at which point the Seahawks would have gotten the ball back about where they were originally, with two minutes left and potentially no timeouts.

Seattle never got the ball back. However, Aaron Rodgers and the offense sealed the game with two key third-down conversions on the final drive.

The Seahawks, who had tied an National Football League record with 10 wins this season by a one-score margin, went out the same way, and pondered a litany of "what-ifs". "There's plays all over the place I'm sure everyone wants back". After the game, Smith described what it was like trying to get to Wilson.

"That's a group you don't want to be one-dimensional against, " Brown said of the Packers.


"We are still terribly disappointed cause we should still be playing", Carroll said. He completed 21-of-31 passes for 277 yards (including nine catches for 136 yards and a TD by Tyler Lockett) and also rushed for 64 yards on seven carries.

The victory sends the Packers into the NFC title game against the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday in Santa Clara, California. "It's a great team, great organization, a great quarterback in Russ". I'll give him credit, though.

The Packers have 52 players on the roster and only needed to make six players inactive. Seahawks' linebacker K.J. Wright discussed Lynch's message to the team. "We couldn't get off the field on third down, unfortunately and we didn't win on one-on-ones". That was one of them because that wasn't exactly the check we were looking for.

Davis was first spotted in a video posted to the Packers' official Twitter account, supporting the Green and Gold from the sidelines. In the heat of the moment, it was a micro mentality in the locker room. "I'm not too frustrated". Obviously, we would have loved to have made a couple more plays, but it is what it is.

Again, that's the macro view.
