NFL: Seahawks, Patriots book Super Bowl showdown

SEATTLE (AFP) - Super Bowl champions Seattle stunned Green Bay 28-22 in overtime on Sunday to book a return to the NFL championship showcase, where they will face the New England Patriots.

Seahawks quarter-back Russell Wilson shook off four interceptions and hit Jermaine Kearse with a game-winning 35-yard touchdown pass on the opening possession of the extra period as Seattle rallied for the victory in the National Football Conference title game.

There was no such drama in Foxborough, Massachusetts, where superstar quarter-back Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and LeGarrette Blount rushed 30 times for 148 yards and three TDs as New England routed the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 to win the American Football Conference crown.
