Aaron Rodgers on Stunning Loss to Seattle: ‘Will Hurt for a While’

Aaron Rodgers on Stunning Loss to Seattle: ‘Will Hurt for a While’ Tom Lynn /Getty Images(SEATTLE) -- The Green Bay Packers let one get away on Sunday in the NFC Championship game. Green Bay had a 19-7 lead with less than three minutes remaining in the game before Russell Wilson, a huge onside kick, and Marshawn Lynch erased that deficit. Rodgers was seeking his second Super Bowl appearance of his career, the last came in 2012 against the Steelers. "This one's going to hurt for a while because of the close proximity to feeling that feeling when the clock hits zero when you're ahead," Rodgers said of the stunning loss.  "We gave it away." Following Wilson's one-yard touchdown run, the Seahawks went with an onside kick that Brandon Bostwick let go through his hands to give them the ball back with 2:13 left in the game, which set up the Lynch 24-yard rushing touchdown and a two-point conversion. "Just have to move on I guess," Bostwick said of not recovering the onside kick.  "I don't really know what to say." "I just reacted and thought I'd make a play on it, but obviously I didn't," Bostwick continued. Had it not been for Mason Crosby's fifth field goal of the game with 14 seconds left to tie things up, the Packers' season would have ended sooner. Seattle won the coin toss in overtime and Wilson hit Jermaine Kearse with a 35-yard touchdown to end the game. "If I played a really bad game, yeah, it'd eat at me all offseason," Packers cornerback Tramon Williams said, who was covering Kearse.  "I don't feel that I played bad at all.  I feel that I played that I played a good game." "The guy at the end of the game made a play," Williams continued.  "You've got to give him his credibility." Green Bay is now 3-3 in NFC Championship games.  They have five Super Bowl titles in franchise history. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Mason Crosby's 48-yard field goal with 14 seconds left tied the game up before Wilson hit Jermaine Kearse with a 35-yard touchdown pass in overtime to end the game. Lynch rushed for 157 yards in the victory to go along with the touchdown.  Wilson finished the game with 209 yards, the rushing touchdown, and game winning pass to Kearse.

"It's just a matter of how."Rodgers missed the Packers' two practices last week during the bye as well as practice Wednesday. Despite that, there still is a chance Rodgers could practice Thursday."It just kind of depends on how it feels," Rodgers said Wednesday. "I met with Doc. I've seen him every day.

It's progressing, but we'll see how it feels tomorrow."Rodgers has started all 16 games for the Packers (12-4) this season.

Suh Wins Appeal, Will Play Against Dallas

Suh Wins Appeal, Will Play Against Dallas Gregory Shamus/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A day after being suspended for Detroit's upcoming wild card game against Dallas, Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh won his appeal and will play in the teams playoff game on Sunday. The decision, handed down by appeals officer Ted Cottrell, came on Tuesday but also carried with it some bad news. Suh was fined $70,000 for stepping on the injured leg of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Sunday's regular season finale. Cottrell agreed with league official Merton Hanks that Suh violated the player-safety policy but opted to reduce the penalty instead of uphold it. "The only thing I can say is if you step on something in your everyday life or if you step on somebody on the field, the first reaction seems to be looking back and maybe apologizing with your hands or maybe pulling your foot back right away, and I'm just not sure that's what happened on Sunday," Rodgers said Tuesday. The four-time Pro Bowler may also have a new guideline to thank for his ability to compete in the postseason. Due to a modified repeat offender policy, players are taken off the "repeat offender" list 32 weeks after their previous violation. For Suh, that came in Week 1 of 2013 when he was fined $100,000 for an illegal chop block on Minnesota Vikings player John Sullivan. The 32-week reprieve game after Week 16, and included two preseason games. In his five seasons, Suh has been penalized 38 times, more than any other player in the NFL since 2010, and has also been fined in excess of $200,000. The Lions visit the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in the NFC's wild card round. It is the first postseason appearance by Detroit since 2011. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
