Green Bay Packers Facing Seattle Seahawks in NFL Divisional Playoff

Green Bay Packers is going to face Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round play off match at the home ground on next Saturday. With 13-3 regular season record, Green Bay Packers earned a bye from the wild card round and thus enjoyed a week off from the schedule. The winner of the match will progress to the NFC Championship match set to be held on 20 January.

Ahead of the divisional round match, Jon Ryan, punter of Green Bay Packers has recently expressed his hopes for the match. This is going to be the first NFL playoff match for Jon Ryan.

National Post reported:

"The most exciting part is the buildup," Ryan said Monday from Green Bay.

"I was talking to Mason [Crosby, Green Bay's rookie kicker] earlier in the week and we said that once the game starts it's just another football game.

"You can forget about all that other stuff and just play football again. All the hype leading up to it is really exciting.

"I don't want to change anything, I want to stick to the same thing because you might psyche yourself out if you were changing anything just because you think it's a bigger game."

Well, Jon Ryan seems to be a bit more matured the way he talked about his first playoff match in NFL. I think, the players of both sides will appear with their professional attitude and come up with an exciting match for their fans. Let us see, who are going to play the NFC Championship from this match.
