Seahawks Fans Leave NFC Championship Game Early, Miss Crazy Comeback

After leaving a do-or-die game early, some Seattle Seahawks fans got exactly what they deserved.

The 2015 NFC Championship Game wasn't looking good for the home team in the waning minutes of the contest. That led some Seahawks fans to leave CenturyLink Field prematurely.

That turned out to be a massive mistake. 

Seattle pulled off an incredible comeback against the Green Bay Packers, scoring 15 points in the final 2:09 of regulation. The Seahawks then won the game—and advanced to the Super Bowl—in overtime on Russell Wilson's 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse.

The fans trying to get back into the stadium only have themselves to blame for giving up on their team. This, of course, brings back memories of the Miami Heat fans who left Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals early. 

Moral of the story: Never leave a game before the final whistle.
