The Seattle Seahawks again have a shot at hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The defending Super Bowl champions erased a 16-point halftime deficit Sunday and rallied past the Green Bay Packers 28-22 in an NFC Championship Game thriller.

After Packers kicker Mason Crosby nailed the game-tying field goal with seconds left in regulation, it took quarterback Russell Wilson and Co. less than four minutes into the first extra frame to seal the deal. Wilson launched a 35-yard pass to wide receiver Jermaine Kearse to end the game and send Seattle to Super Bowl XLIX in two weeks.

Before the game-winner, Wilson was 0 for 5 with four interceptions when targeting Kearse on Sunday.
