SEATTLE - SEATTLE (AP) -- Russell Wilson hit Jermaine Kearse for a 35-yard touchdown 3:19 into overtime to lift the Seattle Seahawks to an improbable 28-22 victory over Green Bay in the NFC championship game.
The Seahawks became the first defending champion to make the Super Bowl in 10 years, and will play the winner of the AFC title game between Indianapolis and New England.
Outplayed much of Sunday and plagued by five turnovers, the Seahawks (14-4) trailed 19-7 with 2:09 remaining. That's when Wilson ran 1 yard for a TD.
Seattle recovered a bobbled onside kick at the 50, and Marshawn Lynch sped and powered his way to a 24-yard TD run. Wilson's desperate 2-point conversion pass was hauled in by Luke Willson to make it 22-19.
But Aaron Rodgers led the Packers (13-5) to Mason Crosby's fifth field goal, from 48 yards with 14 seconds to go.
Then Wilson and Kearse struck.
The Seahawks now wait to see who will be crowned the AFC Champion as the Colts take on the Patriots.
The Super Bowl kicks off Sunday, February 1st at 5:30 p.m. CT at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona.
