NFC Championship Game: Seahawks to host Packers next Sunday at CenturyLink Field

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers beat the Cowboys 26-21 at home on Sunday, meaning they move on to the NFC Championship Game to face the Seahawks. Aaron Rodgers, hobbled by a bum calf, still finished 24-of-35 for 316 yards and three touchdowns, including the go-ahead and eventual game-winning score with 9:10 remaining. Eddie Lacy added 101 yards on 19 carries for the Pack, who managed to achieve a pretty nice offensive balance during their comeback win.

The NFC Championship will be the second meeting between the two teams this year. The Seahawks hosted the Packers to CenturyLink in Week 1, beating them 36-16, but that seems like ages ago, and in many ways both teams have changed significantly.

The Hawks open as 7-point favorites with the over/under set at 47.

The Colts beat the Broncos this evening and will now travel to Boston to play the Patriots next weekend.
