Pack storms back, whups Seahawks

The harder it snowed, the better Green Bay played. And now the Packers are heading to their first NFC championship game in 10 years. The Packers overcame a turnover-prone start that had them in a 14-0 hole barely four minutes in to beat the Seattle Seahawks 42-20. At one point the Packers scored touchdowns on six consecutive possessions as Brett Favre (fahrv) joined Joe Montana as the only NFL quarterbacks to throw for more 5,000 postseason yards.

With Lambeau Field looking like a snow globe, Favre frolicked in the flurries. He threw three touchdown passes in the highest-scoring postseason game in Packers' history.

Ryan Grant made history, too. He made up for his two early fumbles that put the Packers down two touchdowns early to set a Packers' postseason record with 201 yards rushing. He scored three TDs. Greg Jennings caught a pair of TD tosses. Favre tied his personal best for touchdown strikes in a postseason game.

The Packers take on the winner of Sunday's game between the New York Giants and Dallas. If the Cowboys win, they'll host Green Bay. If the Giants win, they'll visit Lambeau Field.
