The Green Bay Packers, coming off a 26-21 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, travel to Seattle to face the NFC's number one seeded Seahawks, who won 31-17 against the Carolina Panthers last week. It is the battle between the NFL's highest scoring offense and the league's best scoring defense. The Seahawks try to become the first team since the 2004 Patriots to play in consecutive title games, while the Packers try to reach the franchise's fifth Super Bowl.
The game is also the battle between two of the game's best coaches, and two of its premier quarterbacks. Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers is 6-4 in the postseason, while Seattle's Russell Wilson is 5-1.
