No. 3 - January 18, 2015: Seahawks win NFC Championship with an epic comeback

This win signified everything Pete Carroll brought to the Seahawks that no matter what, the team would never say die. After a rough start to the NFC Championship against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, the Seahawks could have given up. They trailed 16-0 at halftime and just did not look like themselves throughout the first half.

In the second half, however, Pete Carroll and the Seahawks would pull out all the stops to find a way to make it back to the Super Bowl. Including a fake field goal that holder (punter Jon Ryan) threw to Garry Gilliam for a 17-yard touchdown pass.

When Russell Wilson threw an interception with 5:13 left to play in the game with the Seahawks down 19-7, the game appeared over. The Seahawks' defense would not let that happen, forcing a three-and-out to keep the season alive. Wilson would lead the Seahawks on a touchdown drive which took just 1:39.

With only 2:13 left to play and one timeout left, the Seahawks lined up to kick an onside kick. Hauschka kicked a beauty of an onside kick which hit the Packers' Brandon Bostick in the helmet and was caught by the Seahawks' Chris Matthews off the deflection. Russell Wilson would lead the Seahawks down the field on another touchdown drive capped by a Marshawn Lynch TD run. Then converted a crazy two-point conversion on a pass floated to Luke Willson.

Although the Packers would tie the game at the end of regulation on a Mason Crosby field goal, the Seahawks got the ball to start overtime. Wilson would lead the Seahawks down the field again, looking to send the Seahawks to the Super Bowl for the second straight year. Wilson would connect with Jermaine Kearse on an amazing 35-yard walk-off touchdown to send Seattle back to the Super Bowl.
