In a snow-globe scene, the Packers storm back from a 14-0 deficit to beat the Seahawks, 42-20, in the NFC Divisional playoff, as running back Ryan Grant – whose two fumbles staked Seattle to the early lead – rushes for 201 yards and three touchdowns, both franchise postseason records.
The winter scene was as picturesque as it gets at Lambeau Field, except for the early numbers on the scoreboard. Grant’s miscues put the Packers in a two-TD hole, but barely more than four minutes of game time had elapsed.
As the snow kicked up through the end of the first half and at the start of the second, the Packers scored touchdowns on six consecutive possessions. Brett Favre threw a scrambling, underhanded pass to tight end Donald Lee to set up one score, and Grant kept plowing his way up and down the field, easily topping Ahman Green’s previous single-game franchise playoff record of 156 rushing yards.Grant had five runs of between 15 and 43 yards on the day, and his three rushing TDs beat the team playoff record of two previously held by four other players.
