Packers head coach felt his team only needed 20 points to beat Seattle

I have never heard a coach state he only want to get to a set number of points before, but Packers head coach Mike McCarthy felt his team only needed 20 points.

The Packers had a fourth-and-goal at the one-yard line in the first quarter. That’s a high percentage play, and if you fail the Seahawks are stuck on the shadow of their own goal line. McCarthy took the field goal. The Packers returned to the one-yard line one drive later, and kicked a field goal again.

“I didn’t think it would take a lot of points to win this game,” McCarthy said. “I came in here to run the ball. The one statistic I had a target to hit was 20.”

What do you feel Packer fans? Did you want more than 20 points?
