Packers beat Seahawks 42-20

The 4th quarter saw the Pack get a 1st and goal from the 3 following a nice drive and a roughing penalty. On 2nd and 1 from the 1, Ryan Grant got his 3rd rushing TD, setting a team playoff rushing record and taking the Packers out to a 42-20 lead. He also set a team playoff rushing yards record with 201 yards before exiting the game to rest up for next week. In doing so, he became only the seventh player in NFL history to rush for 200 yards or more in a playoff game. I guess you could say he made up for those 2 early fumbles.

The Packers scored on 6 straight possessions following the opening turnovers. It wasn't until about 9 minutes left in the 4th quarter that the Packers had to punt for the first time.

The Packers 42 points also set a team playoff record, as did their overall 235 rushing yards.

The Pack dominated in every phase of the game. They are looking like they are on a roll. Let's keep an eye on tomorrow's game between the Giants and Cowboys to see who the Pack gets to dissect next.

But for now, this is as very very very sweet win. Enjoy it, fellow Packers fans!

Go Pack Go!!!
