The Seattle Seahawks were fighting for their season with under three minutes to play, and they chose to bank on their defense to stop Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's NFC divisional playoff loss.

Racking up 64 yards rushing on seven scrambles and completing 21 of 31 passes for 277 yards, Wilson directed touchdown drives of 69, 84, 79 right out of the gate after halftime.

The Seahawks are 8-1 against the spread in their last nine games as a road underdog and are 11-3-1 against the number in their last 15 road games.

"The reality is, we didn't make the one or two plays that we needed to", he said. This team battled. I have no frustration about this game, no regrets about this game.

It was in Week 10 that Clowney suffered a core injury that limited him the rest of the way.

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.

The No 2 seeded Packers will now visit the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday in the NFC Championship Game. "I know we have winning habits". And of just how close they came to pulling off one of the more remarkable comebacks in team history.

"I look forward to that next year".

The team is asking for as many as 700 shovelers to assist with the process beginning at 6 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 12. Lynch stayed two more seasons and then went to the National Football League, where he was drafted by the Bills.

Asked about his three-game return to the Seahawks, he said, "It was solid". He would miss three games with the injury and often didn't practice due to it. "We'll see what happens".

The Seahawks would be trailing by eight, and have the added difficulty of needing a two-point conversion but, well, I'd take those odds. Now I done been on the other side of retirement and it's good when you get over there and you can do what. you want to.

Clowney reportedly told them he wouldn't sign it to go to a rebuilding team but would if he were to go to a playoff-caliber team.
