Packers defeat Seahawks, will face San Francisco in NFC title game

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) " Aaron Rodgers connected with Davante Adams eight times for 160 yards and two touchdowns, Green Bay's spruced-up defense fended off a spirited Seattle rally, and the Packers held on for a 28-23 victory Sunday night to reach the NFC championship game for the third time in six years.

Aaron Jones rushed for 62 yards and two first-half scores for the Packers (14-3), who will travel next weekend to take on top-seeded San Francisco.

"This is where it really gets fun. There's only four teams left, and we're one of them, and we've got a legitimate chance," said Rodgers, who went 16 for 27 for 243 yards in his 17th career postseason start. He has 38 touchdown passes in the playoffs, good for fifth in league history

NFC Championship game a homecoming for Packers return man Tyler Ervin
Tyler Ervin's journey to Green Bay is a little like a kick return: full speed ahead, obstacles flying in your face, and no one path to success.

"I think every guy has his unique individual path and mine was one where you just had to work hard," Ervin said.

Ervin played his college ball with the San Jose State Spartans, where he fought injuries all throughout the early part of his career.

"He didn't have a lot of muscle mass on him at that time and he's developed that since then," special teams coach Fred Guidici said. "So that's where he struggled early on and that's why he had some nagging injuries early on."
