I am not an NFL fan by any stretch of the imagination but I have to admit, after watching the Seahawks come from behind win over the Packers yesterday I've become a convert.
With only 2 and one-half minutes left in the game I figured the game was over. I say this because in just the few NFL games I've watched I've seen how a team can use up the last couple of minutes of the game to protect the lead. Yesterday's game will be talked about for a very long time and it is one I will not soon forget.
Here is a link to the 7 plays in that game that were sensational. Most of these plays came when the Seahawks were down 19-7 with just a couple of minutes remaining. I mean…who comes from behind a 12 point deficit in the NFL with just a couple of minutes left. I can see that happening in the CFL because the clock is managed differently but in the NFL. In the NFL a team gets 40 seconds to scrimmage the ball. The team also gets 4 downs. That can kill a clock very quickly. GreenBay was unable to do this.
This was the best come from behind win in the NFL I've ever seen![url=http://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/nfl/seahawks-comeback-win-over-packers-7-must-see-plays-1.2917340]http://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/nfl/s ... -1.2917340[/url]
