This game is tough to think about for Dallas Cowboys fans. When the Seattle Seahawks host the Green Bay Packers for the NFC Championship, it's hard not to think that it should be the Cowboys heading to Seattle for the game. So close, but just not quite there.
The Seahawks got to this game by beating the Carolina Panthers, and we all know how Green Bay got to this game. The two teams met in the first game of the 2014 season, the Seahawks won 36-16 at home.
Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are trying to defend their Super Bowl title, and their defense over the last half of the season looks to be back at championship quality. They also have the running attack of Wilson and Marshawn Lynch. The Packers will counter with a prolific offense led by Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy and a very talented wide-receiving corps. Even though Dallas won't be there, it should be an entertaining game.
