Packers headed to NFC Championship game

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers have reached the NFC championship game by beating the Seattle Seahawks 28-23.

Aaron Rodgers connected with Davante Adams eight times for 160 yards and two touchdowns for the Packers on Sunday night.

They will play at top-seeded San Francisco for a spot in the Super Bowl next weekend. Green Bay's spruced-up defense fended off a spirited Seattle rally to seal the victory.

Russell Wilson directed three straight touchdown drives in the second half to bring the Seahawks back from down 21-3. But Preston Smith's sack forced a punt just before the two-minute warning, and Seattle didn't get the ball back.
