Seahawks Squeeze By Packers And Patriots Overwhelm Colts To Meet In SB 49, Broncos Hire Kubiak As Head Coach


In the NFL, 4 teams were vying for a ticket to the Super Bowl this weekend.  First up, it was the Green Bay Packers taking on the Seattle Seahawks.  The Seahawks have a distinct home field advantage, but that isn’t something that bothers Aaron Rodgers.  The Packers jumped out to a surprising 16-0 lead, and the Seahawks went into halftime a bit nervous.

But in OT, the Seahawks took care of business, as Russell Wilson hit Jermaine Kearse for a touchdown to win the game and send them to Super Bowl 49.  Seattle 28, Green Bay 22.

We will have a terrific Super Bowl match-up in two weeks between the Patriots and Seahawks in Arizona.

Finally, in the NFL, the Denver Broncos hired former Texans’ coach Gary Kubiak as their new head coach.  Fans are not thrilled about the hire, and many think that Peyton Manning may not be excited about it either.  This may signal the end of Peyton Manning’s playing career.
