Seattle won the toss and elected to kickoff. The Giants started off moving the ball with a great mixture of run and pass keeping the hometown Seahawks defense guessing. As New York got withing scoring range an untimely David Wilson turnover stopped the drive cold. This them would repeat itself later on in the game. Seattle put a great drive together and made some big 3rd down conversions to keep the drive alive and with Marshawn Lynch done for the playoffs with an injury Ryan Turbin finished off the drive with a 2 yd TD run to take a 7-0 lead. New York was unfazed because they had the confidence from the previous drive that they could move the ball. On the first play after the kickoff return Victor Cruz to a shallow crossing route 75 yds for a TD beating the Seattle blitz that was called on the play and even the game right back up at 7-7 to end the 1st qtr. Early in the 2nd qtr neither team could find their rhythm but eventually Giants did and finished off a great drive with a Justin Forsett 1 yd TD run to go up 14-7 with 1:25 left in the half. Coach HoodIII knew it would be a tall order to get any points before the half but was determined to do just that and close the gap settling for a 49yd FG as time expired to end the half. After the 1st half of scoring you would expect more to come in the second half which it did not. After the Giants had another key fumble to kill a drive Seattle was only able to muster up a FG to close the gap to 14-10 at the end of the 3rd qtr. In the 4th qtr it was a dfensive chess match with niether team able to land the killing blow but Seahwaks were able to muster 2 more Fg's to take a 19-14 to lead with 1:34 left in the game. This was more then plenty of time for the Giants to break Seattles heart but they had no timeouts left to help them out. New York starting moving the ball but the recurring theme of turnovers came back to haunt them with Jeremy Lane picking off a pass to Victor Cruz to seal the game and allow Seattle to secure the win. The player of the game for Seattle was their place kicker who had 4 FG's on the night to help propel Seattle to the conference championship. Great Game Avery another great battle. Who would have thought this game would propel Seattle to a Superbowl win. Momentum seems to be everything.
