Back-to-back interceptions open NFC Championship Game

Sunday January 18th, 2015

The NFC championship game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks opened with back-to-back interceptions.

Facing a 3rd-and-10 from Seattle's 29, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw deep into the end zone towards Davante Adams and was picked off by Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.

Minutes later, on its first possession of the game, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson had his pass intended for Jermaine Kearse tipped and then intercepted by safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Clinton-Dix returned the pass 26 yards to inside the Seattle 10.

Green Bay would reach the one-yard line but had to settle for a field goal to go up 3-0.
