Seahawks, Packers Play For Spot In NFC Championship Game

Fresh off a wild card win over the Redskins, the Seattle Seahawks venture into Lambeau Field Saturday to take on Brett Favre  and the Packers in the NFC Divisional Playoffs.  The Seahawks overcame a 14-13 fourth-quarter deficit against the ‘Skins with 22 unanswered points.  Seattle won despite subpar performances from quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who passed for 229 yards and was intercepted twice, and running back Shawn Alexander, who was held to just 46 yards on 15 carries.  The Seahawks beat Green Bay 34-24 at home in 2006, but lost its last trip to Lambeau 23-17 in the 2005 regular-season finale.  The Packers come in fresh after a first-round bye following their 13-and-3 regular-season campaign.  Favre has 28 TD passes to 15 interceptions this season, and his 95.7 QB rating is his highest since 1996.  Green Bay’s last postseason win was against Seattle in January 2004.  The Packers beat the Seahawks 33-27 in overtime on Al Harris’ 52-yard interception return.
