    Yep. At least the Hawks made it interesting!

    Seahawks D had a chance to stop GB on 2 3rd downs in the last 3 minutes of the game, but both times couldn't stop GB and get off the field.

    GB won ugly all year long, and they did again.

    Don't worry, they won't make it past SF next week. It's going to be a SF/KC Superbowl.

    I said earlier there will be no way GB beats SF in SF... But the AFC side, is, IMO wide open.

    Well noted!

    But ugly rarely has such an official imprimatur.

    In my view, the Seahawks D did stop the drive. I think there was 1:23 or so remaining. 4th down and inches. Interesting dilemma, no? No time outs remaining. Go for it? Punt? Great game finish?

    If it were me, here is how it should have gone: GB has the ball at midfield with 1:2? remaining. Take a delay of game penalty. Runs 25 seconds off the clock, maybe :56 remain. Better chance to pin the punt. Seahawks get ball at 15 ish with :50 on the clock. Two desperation passes, one connects to midfield. :30 remaining. A field goal is not an option. Two more plays to :12 on the clock. 3rd down, game on the line. End zone play win/lose as time expires.

    Wouldn't that have been a better finish? Face it, Refs we're cold and tired and New York favors GB for ratings. They didn't want to risk it.

    NY and the Refs totally screwed GB by blowing the 'fumble' call in the 1st half. and then charged GB with a TO even though the Refs screwed up, twice.

    The officiating is often so bad in the NFL now, IMO it's kind of pointless to pick out a bad call here or there and say the Refs 'favor' certain teams. The officiating is very bad, all around.

    Is that a K/FC bowl?

    You forgot the phantom TD.
