JEFF: Seahawk Down
By Jeff Falconio
That was as impressive a display of offense as you will ever see in the cold and snow. The Packers completely obliterated
It was still early in the game and there was no need to panic. Rather than launching it deep downfield to try to make something happen, Brett Favre settled in and hit Greg Jennings on an intermediate route. Then James Jones separated from Seahawks defenders for a 31 yard gain on a short pass. Suddenly the Packers looked like they did throughout the regular season and it was 14-7.
Then on the next series Ryan Grant was given the opportunity to atone for his early fumbles and he responded with 49 yards on 5 carries and a touchdown. Tie game. From there it was all over.
Favre was magnificent. His numbers don't pop out at you but his consistent accuracy, especially on third down, kept momentum in
So it's on to the NFC Championship game. One of the youngest teams in the NFL grew leaps and bounds today and the Packers are one step closer to football's ultimate prize.
