The Green Bay Packers are still recovering from one of the most heartbreaking losses in NFL playoff history as they blew a 16-point halftime lead to lose to the Seattle Seahawks.
Wide receiver Jordy Nelson spoke out on the loss for the first time after being asked if the Packers blew it. “Absolutely. This season we’ve been able to finish out games and we just didn’t maximize our opportunities,” the Packers wide receiver said to NFL.com.
The Packers held a 19-14 lead with 2:09 remaining in the fourth quarter, but the Seahawks recovered an onside kick after scoring a touchdown.
Running back Marshawn Lynch proceeded to score the go-ahead touchdown before a two-point conversion was successfully converted. The Seahawks eventually won the game in overtime.
Nelson played in the Pro Bowl and caught a touchdown pass, but he was on the losing side as Team Carter lost to Team Irvin, 32-28.
The Packers will look to recover from this shocking loss and continue to be Super Bowl contenders in the 2015 season.
