NFL players and coaches have said they’re tired of seeing the NFL title game go to overtime and want to keep the game on the field.
But Seahawks fans are not buying it.
They’re demanding a new playoff game for the first time since the 2002 AFC Championship Game and calling for the NFL to take the field for the NFC title game instead.
The new game is being held on Sunday and is scheduled to be played at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
The Seattle Seahawks have been a part of the National Football League since its inception in 1946 and are the only team to win two Super Bowls.
But this year, the Seahawks are in the NFC championship game and the Seahawks have a game to win.
The team has already had an extended hiatus this season due to the flu and the loss of quarterback Russell Wilson to a heart condition.
But fans are demanding the NFL bring back the NFC playoff game and a game with more momentum, more excitement and more drama.
Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson holds the trophy during a media day at the team’s training facility on Tuesday.
AP “They have a chance to win the championship,” Seahawks quarterback Russell Okung said after the team practiced Tuesday.
“We have a long way to go.
We’re a long ways away from the NFC.
We need to go and play the NFC champion.”
The Seahawks are playing without quarterback Russell Anderson and wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who has been out since last Sunday’s win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Wilson is expected to be available to play against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
The Seahawks have won two Super Bams, one in 1960 and another in 1967.
But they’ve not won a playoff game since 2002.
The NFL said it will be holding a press conference on Monday.
The league said it would host a live webcast at 11:30 a.m.
ET on NBC Sports.
