The Green Bay Packers head to CenturyLink Field on Sunday to take on the Seattle Seahawks and the 12th man in the NFC Championship Game.
The Seahawks routed Green Bay to get the regular season underway around four months ago, and now the Packers stand in their way of making it back to the Super Bowl to defend their crown.
Seattle have now won eight games in a row in the playoffs and they just need one more victory to become the first team in 10 seasons to reach the Super Bowl in back-to-back years.
“It’s exciting but the job is not done. There is still a lot more to do,” said quarterback Russell Wilson, who improved to 5-1 in the postseason after throwing for 268 yards and three touchdowns.
The sentiment will be echoed throughout the organisation with the Packers led by Aaron Rodgers, although the MVP contender continues to struggle with a calf injury.
Green Bay have been as dominate as their opponents at home all year, but their woes have come on the road and so they will need a monumental effort from all in order to conquer CenturyLink Field.
Naturally, there are exciting match-ups across the field not least between the two quarterbacks, but also with Marshawn Lynch and Eddie Lacy while receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb will test themselves against the ‘Legion of Boom’.
Seattle have won the last two meetings between these two teams and they unsurprisingly start as favourites on Sunday as they look to take another step towards securing their spot at the top of the NFL for another year.
