The Seahawks vs Packers game also throws up one of the most interesting matchups in the Divisional Round. The defense was their main struggle as the Niners allowed 31.8 ppg over their final four regular-season games but the defense bounce back strong last week against the Vikings as they held them to 10 points in the 17-point win. And on third-and-five from the Seattle 42, Wilson was sacked, forcing Seahawks coach Pete Carroll to make the distasteful decision to punt with under three minutes to play.
Rodgers hasn't had much help beyond Adams and Jones this season, but he and LaFleur did a masterful job of getting them the ball with some Graham mixed in. The game against the Seattle Seahawks will be Rodgers' first post-season appearance in three years.
Obviously handing out some wisdom and life nuggets to consider for a young Seahawks locker room that is in the immediate aftermath of a loss. Both squads are just one win away from a Super Bowl berth.
Vikings Defense Unable to Put 49ers in Bad Situations
San Francisco's quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo connected with 11 of 19 passes for 131 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Garoppolo started the game hot, finding wide receiver Kendrick Bourne for a three-yard touchdown to start the scoring.
"Look, I'll say like this though, right?" The Packers haven't gone one-and-done in the playoffs since 2013, but they also don't have an easy opponent in Sunday's divisional game against the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau Field.
The victor of Sunday's matchup plays the San Francisco 49ers out west next Sunday with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. As it turns out, AD is a huge Packers fan and his favorite player is Aaron Rodgers.
Wilson was elusive in the pocket, especially in the second half, but the Packers never let him get comfortable, and it eventually paid off late in the game. And for the second playoff game in a row, he led the team in rushing with 64 yards in seven carries. Anyone who goes through that process and stuff, we're all competitive, you want to win and you want to get that opportunity and stuff. We couldn't go out like that. They have thrived off turnovers this season, owning a plus-12 advantage in that category, which is better than all but two National Football League teams. As for the Seahawks, they're receiving the majority of the public backing and I don't love the idea taking public-backed underdogs.
