Seahawks going to Super Bowl with 28-22 win over Packers

SEATTLE — Russell Wilson fired a 35-yard touchdown strike to Jermaine Kearse in overtime to give the Seattle Seahawks a stunning 28-22 comeback win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday to seal a return trip to the Super Bowl.

The Seahawks, bidding to become the first team in a decade to win back-to-back Super Bowls, will now await the winner of the AFC final between the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts who clash later on Sunday.

Trailing 19-7 the Seahawks scored 15 points in 44 seconds late in the fourth quarter Wilson and Marshawn Lynch each powering their way into the end zone for touchdowns and adding a two-point conversion to surge ahead 22-19.

But the drama was far from over, as the Packers’ Mason Crosby booted his fifth field goal of the day to send the NFC championship into overtime where Russell hit a streaking Kearse for the winning score.
