The Seahawks trailed 16-0 at halftime. In the second half, the Seahawks staged a heart-pounding rally. They even recovered an onside kick with just over two minutes left in the game to lead to Seattle’s tying score. Russell Wilson, who played poorly most of the day, threw a touchdown pass three minutes into overtime to win the game.
The 49ers spotted the Falcons a 17-0 lead early on and then dominated behind the passing of Colin Kaepernick.
The Redskins were the defending World Champions, and for three-quarters, you could tell why as they dominated the 49ers and entered the 4th quarter up 21-0. The 49ers staged a dramatic comeback to tie the game at 21. The Redskins mounted one final drive that led to Mark Mosley kicking a field goal to win the game. It should not be left unsaid that this game was not officiated very well, and the 49ers seemed to be on the wrong end of every call during this game.
This was a great matchup between the experienced 49ers and the young up and coming Cowboys. The difference in this game was Dallas forcing four turnovers that turned into 10 points. In the final minutes, the 49ers had close to 24-20 and seemed to have momentum on their side, that is until QB Troy Aikman hit Alvin Harper on a 70-yard pass play down inside of the 49ers ten-yard line. A couple of plays later, the Cowboys were in the end zone and headed to the Super Bowl.
This was a great back and forth game between a great team(Cowboys) and a team on the verge of greatness(Packers). The Cowboys led 31-27 late in the fourth quarter, and Brett Favre drove the Packers down the field. Unfortunately, Favre threw an ill-advised pass that was intercepted by the Cowboys, Larry Brown. That interception led to an Emmitt Smith touchdown that ended the game.
For the second time in three years, QB Brett Favre threw away an NFC Championship game with a bad interception.
Here he is again; Brett Favre threw his last pass as a Packer in this game in overtime; guess how it turned out? If you thought it was a poor decision and throw that led to an interception and ended up losing his team the game, you would be right!
Gary Anderson had not missed a kick the entire season, but he did miss late in this game with a chance to clinch it. Falcons kicker Morten Anderson made good on his chance a 38-yard field goal in overtime that sent Atlanta to its first-ever Super Bowl and sent Vikings fans into a state of shock.
The Falcons came into the game as 11-point underdogs but managed to win an extremely competitive game, making Minnesota the first 15-1 team ever to fail to reach the Super Bowl; the 2004 Steelers would join them.
This is one of the most brutal hitting games in NFL history; the Giants, not Montana, are out of the game late. The Giants promptly went down the field and kicked a game-winning field goal. Then with the 49ers running out the clock late, running back, Roger Craig fumbled.
One of the greatest games in NFL history was the Montana-Walsh dynasty’s beginning.
