(UPDATE 1/29) The Seahawks survived an eventful Media Day, where Marshawn Lynch made most headlines for his brevity and monotonous responses on Tuesday.

With as little as two minutes remaining in the NFC Championship Game, it seemed highly unlikely the Seahawks would be making another trip to the Super Bowl. Green Bay had a 19-7 lead and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had already thrown four interceptions. But in less than a minute, the Seahawks scored 14 points to take a three point lead. A 1-yard Russell Wilson touchdown run was followed by a successful onside kick. On the ensuing possession, Marshawn Lynch had a 24-yard touchdown run to put Seattle up by a field goal. Green Bay was able to tie the game as regulation ended to force overtime.
Overtime did not last long as Seattle was able to score a touchdown just over three minutes in. The touchdown sent Seattle to an improbable victory and off to Arizona to face either the Patriots or Indianapolis Colts.
This will be Seattle’s third trip to the Super Bowl as a franchise. The first appearance came in Super Bowl XL, a 21-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
