The NFC Championship game has started in a way that few people expected. In a half tainted with goal line failures, seven turnovers, and a complete lack of offense by the Seahawks. Neither team has been overly impressive.

Despite the weather, the majority of the turnovers have been caused by terrible decision making by the quarterbacks. Russell Wilson didn’t complete his first pass until 3:46 left in the 2nd quarter. The first play out of the two minute warning was a lofted duck to a contested WR that resulted in the day’s second interception in the end zone.
RUSSELL WILSON'S FIRST HALF: 2/9 12 Yards 0 TDs 3 INTs
What’s most amazing is that this is merely a 16 point game despite the one-sidedness of that stats. The Seahawks will have to simplify their offense and get the ball moving on 1st and 2nd down with short passes. The game isn’t over yet, but the Seahawks need to rally sooner rather than later if they want to keep their pride after this game.
