Richard Sherman intercepts Rodgers one year on from Crabtree play

Only minutes into the NFC Championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers and Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman is back to his old tricks.

Coming up big again

Exactly one year on from his huge play against Michael Crabtree and the San Francisco 49ers on the same Playoff stage Sherman again made a huge play - this time intercepting Aaron Rodgers in the end zone.

The Green Bay quarterback had insisted that he wouldn't shirk throwing in the direction of Sherman but it proved to be a mistake early on. The play itself can be seen via this link.

Sherman, going toe-to-toe with Packers rookie wide receiver Davante Adams, made the grab look easy as he got two hands on the ball and two feet on the ground to complete the pick - leaving Adams with no chance on the play.

The cornerback actually went one better than his play on Crabtree to seal the Seahawks' win over the 49ers this time last year. That time he swatted away the pass.

Of course there is plenty of time to go in tonight's Green Bay - Seattle match up before Sherman can offer another explosive interview but the interception will certainly make Aaron Rodgers think twice about throwing it in Seattle's direction again.

Seattle themselves quickly went on to give Green Bay the ball back, Russell Wilson throwing his own interception on the very next phase.
