Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers finally got by the Seattle Seahawks, but they might have had a little help.
No, we’re not talking about the fact the Packers finally got Seattle at home, eventually winning 27-17 on Sunday night. Rather, we’re talking about the Packers possibly having a little divine intervention.
You may recall Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s postgame interview following Seattle’s NFC Championship Game win over the Packers. The quarterback broke down and cried his face off while thanking God for helping him and the Seahawks prepare for the Packers.
Rodgers eventually responded, saying he didn’t think God really cared about who wins a football game, and he appeared to double down on that stance Sunday.
In Rodgers’ defense, he did put himself in a position where it was OK to talk trash. The All-Pro completed 25 of 33 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns. Wilson, meanwhile, completed just 19 of 30 passes for 206 yards and — while he did throw for two scores — also had a back-breaking interception on a blown screen pass in the fourth quarter.
