RENTON,华盛顿(AP) – 因为他从来没有经历过的那一刻,凯文·威廉姆斯在适合做什么损失。

队友迈克尔·贝内特骑周围借来的警自行车。 Other Seahawks were all piling around Jermaine Kearse, who had just caught the winning touchdown in overtime to send Seattle to a second straight Super Bowl.

威廉姆斯决定了他的庆祝终于在他的第12 NFL赛季使得超级碗是简单地像一个孩子跑来跑去。

“”我还是那种敬畏和浸泡,并获得在NFC冠军的胜利,并领导超级碗,这是一个漫长的时间来对我来说,“”威廉姆斯周三表示。 ”A lot of guys don’t understand the playoffs. If you went to a San Francisco or a Seattle you might think that’s an every year thing, but I was just soaking it all in.”

威廉姆斯是本届超级碗绑定海鹰名册元老。 He’s the oldest and longest-tenured player, but after 11 seasons in Minnesota and only making one NFC championship game with the Vikings, Williams is finally getting a trip to the title game.

‘紧接着的比赛我看到他时,我开始在他大呼小叫,“这是你来到这里为了什么,”“”西雅图防守端崖艾薇儿说。 ”It was just awesome to be able to help a veteran like him who has done so much but hasn’t been able to get here thus far. It’s awesome that we could help and be a part of something so special for him.”

威廉姆斯的角色已经从当他与鹰队在休赛期签约显著改变。 Williams was supposed to be part of a rotation at defensive tackle. That all changed when Brandon Mebane was lost for the season to a torn hamstring and Williams became Seattle’s option at nose tackle.

这是一个并不熟悉的位置,但一个挑战威廉姆斯愿意承担。 And his improvement as a nose tackle, especially stopping the run, was evident on two key plays late in the fourth quarter of Seattle’s rally against Green Bay. After Russell Wilson’s fourth interception, the Seahawks immediately forced a three-and-out. Williams and Bennett stuffed Eddie Lacy on the first two plays for negative gains and the Seahawks were able to get the ball back with enough time to stage their rally.

“”你可以看到他们想要的时钟快速移动的边线球员,“”威廉姆斯说。 ”You cannot flinch in this game and I think that’s what happened.”

当然,这种NFC冠军赛有威廉姆斯闪回他扮演的只是另外一个,在2010年1月对新奥尔良海盗。 Minnesota was in position to win the game in regulation before a late interception forced overtime, where the Saints won.

有没有营业额这段时间。 Seattle had already scored twice, including recovering an onside kick, and led 22-19 with 1:24 left. But the Packers were able to get a tying field goal and force OT.

“”一旦我们得到了不越位反撞我当时想,“我们要赢得这场比赛,”“”威廉姆斯说。 ”That was everybody’s kind of thought. We never gave up on thinking we could win the game.”

面对爱国者将会引发对威廉姆斯的团聚。 When he was making his decision where to sign last summer, his final two choices were Seattle and New England. He eventually picked Seattle because he knew more players.

“”那正是我来了,对必须到超级杯的机会,“”威廉姆斯说。 ”I’m headed that way so I can say I made a good decision.”
