NFL Football Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers Start Time, NFL Odds

The defense made an early Rodgers interception moot by responding with a three-and-out, and rookie Justin Vogel's booming 57-yard punt out of his own end zone helped the cause, too.

The Packers ran 74 plays to Seattle's 48, gained 370 yards to Seattle's 225 and held possession for almost 40 minutes to Seattle's 21.

National Football League pass interference is defined as an instance "when any act by a player more than one yard beyond the line of scrimmage significantly hinders an eligible player's opportunity to catch the ball". "He's done everything we have asked of him, for weeks and weeks now", head coach Pete Carroll said. When you think of#Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson, you think scoring and a lot of it. He should perform much better Sunday, coming off a season in which he was hobbled throughout the year. "We have done a good job of forcing turnovers against him and the same goes. And we will be".

Seattle came back with a long drive and 21-yard Walsh field goal to cut its deficit to 7-6.

Third quarter, and Mike Daniels can't be stopped.

That sets up the the Packers offense for first and goal, and Ty Montgomery finds the lane for the touchdown.

The Packers will take their 1-0 record to Atlanta next Sunday night to face the Falcons. "That kind of got everybody going". Seattle has tried to address its run game this season by adding Eddie Lacy, but he seems to be stuck in a three-way battle with Thomas Rawls and Chris Carson for carries. The Seahawks had three plays from the 3, but couldn't get it in, with Daniels' hit on Wilson forcing a third-down incompletion.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson vs. Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane - Just a year removed from an ACL injury, Nelson had a brilliant season a year ago with 1,257 yards and 14 TDs.

Under heavy pressure less than five minutes into the second half, Wilson was stripped and the Packers' recovered at the Seahawks' 6-yard line. The receiver caught the ball inside the 5-yard line but was pushed out of bounds by safeties Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix before he could get two feet down. However, that wasn't the case this afternoon at Lambeau Field.

Nelson finished with seven receptions for 79 yards.

"We played with great energy, but we didn't score enough points".

"I'm just going to go out and play the game that I love to play". Twice with the Seahawks playing catch-up, Green Bay stalled promising drives to force field goals.

McCarthy's final timeout came with 43 seconds left. After the Packers got torched by Dez Bryant and Julio Jones for over 100 receiving yards each in the playoffs, the Packers addressed that concern by signing cornerback Devon House and by drafting cornerback Kevin King in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Wilson then found a huge void in the middle of the field and ran for 29 yards.

Then, in the third quarter, Jimmy Graham faced stiff opposition on an attempted reception in the end zone.

On Green Bay's opening possession, Rodgers' interception-free streak was snapped at 251 attempts.

After a three-and-out by Seattle, Rodgers went to work again. Since Lane was ejected, Shaquill Griffin took his position and was not effective.

Martellus Bennett, who went to high school in Taylor, Texas, has been working to raise money and supplies for residents of flood-ravaged parts of the Lone Star State.

Although he had the chance to return back to the Packers, Lacy chose to have a fresh start with the Seahawks. He carried five times for 3 yards.

But it was the penalty against Bennett that was most concerning for Packers fans.
