Super Bowl bound | Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks clinched the NFC for the second time in franchise history and secured their ticket to New Jersey.

The Seattle Seahawks clinched the NFC for the second time in franchise history and secured their ticket to New Jersey.

The Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers in the championship game Sunday 23-17.

Now the No. 1 defense in the league will face off against the No. 1 offense of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, Feb. 2.

Seattle has been to the Super Bowl one other time in 2006, when the Seahawks lost 21-10 in the controversial game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This is the first time coach Pete Carroll has advanced his team to the big game.

With a Super Bowl win, he would join Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer as the only coaches to win both a NCAA and NFL championship.

Seattle trailed 10-3 at halftime.

The go-ahead touchdown came from a 35-yard pass from quarterback Russell Wilson to receiver Jermaine Kearse on fourth and seven early in the fourth quarter.

The game wasn’t over yet, the 49ers brought it down to the wire. With 22 seconds left, quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s pass to receiver Michael Crabtree was tipped into linebacker Malcolm Smith’s hands by cornerback Richard Sherman.

That play would seal the deal.

The Super Bowl will be televised on Fox 13 at 3:30 p.m.
