For almost 55 minutes of Sunday’s NFC title game, the Seahawks passing game was dormant.
Russell Wilson had thrown four interceptions and hadn’t cracked 100 yards passing. Then everything clicked, culminating with a 35-yard touchdown pass from Wilson to Jermaine Kearse to help the Seahawks win 28-22 in overtime and advance to their second straight Super Bowl.
Still, the Seahawks’ offense was abysmal for most of the game (aside from Marshawn Lynch’s 157 yards and go-ahead score on the ground). The only Seahawks wide receiver with more than two catches was Doug Baldwin, who hauled in six for 106 yards.
Baldwin, emotional after the win, went on a rant after the game that wasn’t quite Richard Sherman Part II, but the media-directed tirade is still worth a watch.
