The Packers held on to defeat the Seahawks with clutch fourth-quarter conversions to advance to the NFC Championship game.

Betting Impact:

For the second straight year, the Seahawks were apart of a huge playoff two-point conversion. When the game kicked off the Packers were four-point favorites, and for a while, it looked like they were going to absolutely dominate. But Russell Wilson led the Seahawks back, which pushed the total over the number of 47 and left some bettors praying for a successful two-point conversion try from Seattle. The Seahawks failed to convert, then failed to score any more points and lost the game by five, failing to cover by one point. The Packers move on to take on the 49ers in a rematch of a game where they were destroyed 37-8.
