SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

The Super Bowl is still eight days away, but the hype is just starting to kick into gear. We will have continuous coverage of the game all week here on SBNation, but our friendly team blogs are on the spotlight. Here is just a sampling of the excellent content being written every day on Field Gulls and Mile High Report.

Breaking down the "other play" that sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl

Richard Sherman's tipped interception got all the headlines, but there was one play just as important to Seattle's win. On fourth down, Pete Carroll sent out the field goal unit, but Steven Hauschka decided to not try it. Instead, they went for it and Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard strike to Jermaine Kearse in the endzone. It gave the Seahawks the lead and changed the complexion of the game. Danny Kelly breaks the play down in detail.
