Yes, it is a cliche, but the game is never over until it’s actually over as Seattle comes from behind to advance to the Super Bowl.
A trip to the Super Bowl is on the line.
The Green Bay Packers listed both their starting quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) and running back (Eddie Lacy) on the injury report as limited participants in Thursday’s practice. The team estimated that the two players would have been limited on Friday as well and gave both a probable chance to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in the NFC championship game. The Packers list four players on their injury report and the Seahawks list seven (two not injury related) on theirs.
If Seattle wants a second straight trip to the Super Bowl, here are three vital areas to focus on.
Ten injured Hawks and just five injured Panthers for this Divisional Round game.
How can the Seahawks win their second straight Lombardi Trophy? The same way they did last season.
Few people thought the 49ers were going to go into Seattle and beat the Seahawks, but the 49ers gave the home team a scare. If not for injuries and a bad call, San Francisco might have been able to keep their postseason hopes alive.
For the second time this season, the Seahawks and 49ers will meet. Both teams need a win for their playoff hopes, but it’s the 49ers who are on the verge of being eliminated. San Francisco has not looked good the past two weeks and will need to quickly turn things around if they want to avoid their 3rd straight loss.
The Thursday Night game between the Seahawks and 49ers was not as competitive as anticipated. Despite being at home, and needing to win this game more than their opponent, San Francisco had no answer for the defending Super Bowl Champs, and the result was a Seattle victory.
Anthony Davis is still recovering from his concussion and Justin Smith has a bad back, but Smith will play and no other important players will miss this important game. Seattle on the other hand has no new injuries, making both sides relatively healthy.
