GREEN BAY, Wis., Jan. 4 (UPI) -- Cornerback Al Harris scored on a 52-yard interception return in overtime Sunday as Green Bay beat Seattle, 33-27, in an NFC wild card game.
The play likely means this will be a long off-season for Matt Hasselbeck. The Seahawks quarterback could be overheard saying "We're gonna score" after his team won the coin toss for the extra period. Ironically, the Packers (11-6) will now play Harris' former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, in the divisional playoffs next Sunday on the road.
Hasselbeck, a former Packer, passed for 305 yards and engineered three touchdown drives in the second half, the last tying the game at 27-27 with 51 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
Favre went 26-of-38 passes for 319 yards and a touchdown, and improved to 36-1 at Lambeau Field when the temperature is 34 degrees or below.
