Seattle joins Denver in Super Bowl
SEATTLE — Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass on fourth down and Seattle’s top-ranked defence forced two late turnovers, lifting the Seahawks into their second Super Bowl with a victory over San Francisco for the NFC championship.
Seattle will meet Denver for the NFL title in two weeks in the New Jersey Meadowlands. It’s the first trip to the big game for the Seahawks (15-3) since they lost to Pittsburgh after the 2005 season.
The conference champs had the best records in the league, the first time the top seeds have gotten to the Super Bowl since 2009.
