The harder it snowed, the better Green
Bay played. And now the Packers are heading to their first NFC
championship game in 10 years.
The Packers overcame a turnover-prone start that had them in a
14-0 hole barely four minutes in to beat the Seattle Seahawks
42-20. At one point the Packers scored touchdowns on six
consecutive possessions as Brett Favre joined Joe Montana
as the only NFL quarterbacks to throw for more 5,000 postseason
With Lambeau Field looking like a snow globe, Favre frolicked in
the flurries. He threw three touchdown passes in the
highest-scoring postseason game in Packers' history.
Ryan Grant made history, too. He made up for his two early
fumbles that put the Packers down two touchdowns early to set a
Packers' postseason record with 201 yards rushing. He scored three
TDs. Greg Jennings caught a pair of TD tosses. Favre tied his
personal best for touchdown strikes in a postseason game.
The Packers take on the winner of Sunday's game between the New
York Giants and Dallas. If the Cowboys win, they'll host Green Bay.
If the Giants win, they'll visit Lambeau Field.
