The Green Bay Packers players and fans have every reason to be disappointed and frustrated about Sunday as they lost, 28-22, in overtime after looking primed to reach the Super Bowl.
The Packers led the Seattle Seahawks, 19-7, toward the end of the fourth quarter despite being underdogs by seven points and having quarterback Aaron Rodgers playing with an injured calf.
The Seahawks stormed back with two touchdowns before the Packers kicked the game-tying field goal. They completed the comeback with an overtime touchdown pass by quarterback Russell Wilson.
Many of the Packers players were shaken by losing, but none of them took it as hard as left guard Josh Sitton, who would have taken missing the playoffs over what really happened.
“You feel like it’s a waste of seven, eight months. What’s the point of getting this far? I’d have rather not even made the playoffs,” the Packers guard dejectedly told ESPN Wisconsin.
The Packers offensive line showed notable improvement this season as quarterback Aaron Rodgers put together a season that will likely give him MVP honors.
This loss is sure to haunt the Packers for a long time, but they will look to recover and continue to be Super Bowl contenders for the foreseeable future.
